Do you watch a lot of TV?
Have you ever thought 'Wow, TV could be a LOT better if they tried'?
Have you ever absent-mindedly sat down in front of a TV and stayed put for longer periods of time, without talking, doing, or thinking anything?
I think we ALL have at least once in our lives (if not hundreds or thousands of times).
This can be regarded as a hypnotic state.
Have you thought about how that affects your unconscious mind?
If not, then for your own greater good, read on...
A flow of information is constantly streaming from the television set; a bombardment of words and pictures. The speed at which this information is communicated makes it easy for the signal to take control, switching the viewer's brain to stand-by as information is absorbed without analysis or question. Today the television's constant signal shapes the conclusions of the masses and produces the collective norm. The signal prescribes what is news and what is truth through the words of so-called experts and authorities, gelding the consciousness and independent thoughts of those subjected to it. Through television, the masses can be made to accept the most monstrous distortions of reality. The signal is a chill wind of continuous oppression over the minds of the masses. It controls the management of society and culture, creating uniformity across all subjects.

Fuck Today/Tonight, A Current Affair (full of advertising and stories about morons, made by morons), fuck Neighbours (life depicted as dramatically trivial), fuck the 6 o'clock news (90%+ negative stories), fuck 20 to 1 (advertising/hype), fuck NCIS and Law & Order (stories about authorities taking down the baddies), fuck MTV (facilitating the DEvolving of its viewers with its focus placed in trivial areas with shows about cheating spouses, how 'cool' it is to own lots of expensive 'stuff', music with no artistic merit, gossiping about people, forcing self-identity, and HEAPS of other garbage shows with seriously DUMB choices of focus), fuck Criminal Minds (self-explanatory), fuck Australian idol (slowly turning music performance into a compact little package of cliche), fuck all of the shitty television and their influence on young people, stupid people and our culture in general. These shows taint humanity's collective conscious, whether we realise it or not, and we are better off unplugging the TV and using the time to do something of higher purpose.
Vent over. :) Phew.
