Stop watching the news. Stop reading about anything related to conflicts. The media manipulates the population into a hysteria, which I believe your
post more than proves. They turn people into ideologues and what ideology you end up subscribing to depends on your emotional attachments.
Trust me, I was a radical for over a decade. All I saw were bombs and death and misery...and worst of all, celebrities. Then again, I never took them
as seriously as you have. They were just lame and in my face
So in my head, there's this raging war going on outside. It's like being in Hitler's bunker in late April, 1945. Only if you go outside I assure
you nothing is happening. It may even be almost comedicly serene with the sun shining, the daisies dancing and the birds' a chirpin'.
"James Franco and Seth Rogan are going to kill us all." Too funny. North Korea can't hit us. Why the hell do you think we spent so much time
setting up, or attempting to anyway, strongholds in East Asia? We were run out of Vietnam but we're still in South Korea and Japan.
Not to mention they remade Red Dawn a couple years ago and I believe they were originally going to make it China but then changed their minds to North
Korea, because China...we don't want to offend them too much. But North Korea? Even with nuclear capabilities, they're a joke. They're only a
danger to the region but even still, Russia and China are just a godslap away from shutting down any temper tantrums Psycho the Second (or is it the
third?) might throw.
We're gonna be alright. Look into Valium. Even if this dismissal proves foolish and NK starts bombarding us tomorrow, the valium, man...the valium.
Others will scream "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE" as you snicker at a Tom & Jerry cartoon. Or maybe try some of whatever Franco and Rogan are smoking.
Relax, it's all just a show. And some people prefer horror which is why we have cable news channels.
I recommend channels that show old TV shows like Mister Ed and the Twilight Zone and Get Smart and the Avengers...trust me, you'll go sane.
