I am sorry i keep being so negative about this thread but really there isn’t any proof to back up any of your claims. By using David Icke as a source to explain this all to us is rather like getting Hitler to come and explain to us all why it’s ok to kill Jews. He is probably the easiest source to discredit, especially after the Terry Wogan show. I’ll be honest with you i didn’t even bother watching it, I read the first quote you put up, which is correct by the way, the brain does make sub-conscious decisions before we know about them. Then i read the word “illuminati” and knew it was just going to be more of the same, some ex goal keeper talking a whole load of rubbish.

Also dose this not go against your mantra of turning of the TV, when we take your argument back for it to be effective you would also have turn of your computer therefore by your logic how do I know that Mr. Icke isn’t part of the NWO. That’s the problem with your thread for it to be effective for the NWO everybody in the entertainment and media industry would have to be involved in some way and by definition this would probably include Icke and all other “conspiracy theorists” like him.

Here is an interesting website: Instead of TV.

From the home page:

My journey to trashing my television set began on September 11, 2001. That day my boyfriend decided to put me, then pregnant, our one-year-old son, and my daughter out onto the street. We were homeless. It was an ordeal to be certain. We moved precariously among four different shelters, all located in various crime-infested areas of Denver. However, something strange happened with the children. They began to behave better. It took about a year to isolate the cause to the absence of television. It took another year to decide to get rid of the TV. It has been a strange journey to say the least.

What are some of the things we do instead of watching TV?

Maybe:

  • Read
  • Create with our hands (art, woodworking, etc.)
  • Play a board game
  • Go for a walk (a good time to think)
  • Write (journaling, forum participation, etc.)
  • Play a sport
  • Listen to/dance to music


I think activities such as these are like springboards - they make other good things happen. Why? Because they engage the mind and body; they're active rather than passive.

I think this thread is very important, but its almost impossible to do, with older kids, and games, and a shut in parent, who relies on her news (which I dont endorse). It may work with younger kids though, and for many.

In my situation, the cable is only in separate bedrooms, and the games are just as bad.

Its so important for everyone to realize, that we're in tests here, and earth is more than a school its a hellzone type planet and more like a reform school, but the tests are hard. Bascially we're living lives, and circumstances based on our frequency and the state we reached in past incarnations, and everyone in our lives, both positive and negative relationships and experiences are no coincidence either.

Here is the thing, our state of mind, being, actions and inactions, and unconditional love for everyone, or lack of this, and how we respond to negativity directed towards us (remember, turn the other cheek, treat all as you would wish to be treated if you were them and walked through their difficulties and with thier perception, so that means empathy for everyone, without exception), determines our next world, step, existence.

And every day is tests, but more so, everything is a TRAP, from media, movies, to video games, killing and war.

And yet, we cant always unplug loved ones from them.

What we can do is this: speak peace and love, try to help. Don't react, but contemplate family or personal difficulites, turn negatives thoughts around and find solutions. Lure people away from tv and games, more and more, outings, sports, do some tai chi with them even if all you can afford is a dvd, or online instructions, some things cost money, some do not, paper mache, crafts, make costumes, painting, family games, cards, just always find ways to distract, and encourage excercise, meditation and sungazing safely for everyone, getting some sun every time it comes out, and when its not out, wishing it out.

Try to balance it out and if possible: Turn the TV and all games OFF!

You guys are going about this all the wrong way. The TV is going to help bring forth the change! History channel has been greenlighting alien programs for the past month, even house had an episode about aliens. TV is good if you use it in the right way. Just stay away from Fox..

I personally think that there are some good things you can get from the news. You have to just wade through the BS to find the shred of truth buried within. You know propeganda when you hear it. It even shows ups here on ATS at times.

"Just TV or Military Weapon?"

I did this thread a while back. It didn't get many replies,but I'm sure this angle has been covered many times here,or if not,it should be! It fits the definition of a conspiracy alright!

(I haven't had a TV since the switchover. The computer is just as distracting in it's own way,but when I see televisions in stores or someone else's home,it sure feels sinister to me. I don't trust them!)

Yes, I see that in the thread an article is linked about a secret Pentagon psychotronics technology known as Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (SSSS). It has been operational since the early 1990s, and was the technology that was used against Iraqi troops in Kuwait and in Iraq in Gulf I.

I see the article points out the use of this technology in combination with HAARP transmitters, GWEN (Ground-Wave Emergency Network) towers, microwave cell phone towers, and HD Digital TV.

Here hyou go its one of only the few shows i can handle watching, i dont know if you are aware of Stephen Fry, hes a great comedian did a lot of work with Hugh Laurie including Black Adder.

The show has 4 panelists, usualy comedians, who are generaly always very sharp people and its basicaly just them getting abused by Stephen Fry about there lack of knoweledge.

This show will basicaly make you smarter.

I stopped watching TV years back...I'll watch the news channel every now and then for entertainment purposes to witness the propaganda & biased news reports. It's truly amazing to see all this when one realizes the blueprint they use to persuade the viewer, terrifying yet incredible.

I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry when I saw a Anti Marijuana commercial which had vibes of horror, death, & disaster. Very insightful yet so disgusting the way the media is still portraying a spiritual plant as a devil plant.

Yes, turn the TV off for months to years & revisit it later as an aware observer. I assure you, you'll find the format the media uses all too interesting...

Or don't turn off the TV, leave it on the Discovery Channel and/or educational shows you prefer

But I love my TV... I just got it.....

And it shows me such wonderful things....

The world is a scary place sometimes, I like to bunker down in my tv room and make reality disappear for a while....

Turn it off? Really.........

Before you turn off the TV, dump the violent vid games.

They are more harmful I think.
