Modern Americans have a new characteristic—an addiction to 24/7 news. This is particularly true for the elderly. As it turns out, the average age for FOX/CNN/MSN is over 60. It’s troubling to think that so many Americans, now in their golden years, are addicted to a continual stream of propaganda.
Note the difference between news and propaganda. In many poor nations, it’s common to see old men gathering at the local café to discuss world affairs. They play dominoes, chess, drink tea, etc. However, most of their news is actually news—it’s centered on events that happened.
And therein lies the difference.
Americans are addicted to fake news—agitative propaganda. Stories are ignored (or excessively pushed) based on the political goals of the TV executives. Take Charlottesville, for example. That same day, all across America, hundreds of people were murdered—white on white, black of white, black on black, etc. Yet the media chose to fixate on Chalottesville to further their agenda: i.e. the removal of Donald Trump by attempting to link him with white supremacy. That’s more than a news story…that’s agitative propaganda. Believe me, the story could easily have been ignored if the media chose to (they do so everyday).
The Western news media cannot be trusted. They’re telling lies, so it’s best that you ignore them.
Instead, focus on your personal goals. Are you trying to lose weight? Write a book? Build a business? Then focus on those things instead. These activities will keep you busy throughout the day and, more importantly, keep you more fulfilled.
Your personal goals are more important than agitative propaganda.
