Giving up Television – 2 years later

Amazing what happens when you unplug from Television

TV addict brain damagedSome Hoboken411 friends and readers know that we gave up television, about two years ago to the day. We gave it up because it became apparent that they (MSM) NEEDED as many viewers as possible to accomplish one or more of the following (and probably a lot more than this):

  • Indoctrination. To further “interests,” such as (political policies, environmental polices, societal mores, etc.)
  • “Bread & Circus.” To keep people blissfully ignorant of what is really going on. Entertain them. Easy as pie!
  • Common sense versus “Commercial Sense.” Because mainstream manipulation is like shooting fish in a barrel.

I could go on.

But one thing that is important, and consistent with anyone who changes themselves as an “individual,” is that they are most effective at change when it is THEIR OWN IDEA. Have you ever seen a TV program or mainstream news article that essentially shows how you can give the addiction up? Never.

Giving up Television in Hoboken NJ TV Addiction

TV addiction one of the hardest to break

I ask many individuals each week if they would ever consider giving up the TV. I have not gotten one single response that anyone would. Like asking a crack addict in Camden, NJ to come clean. Impossible. They cannot imagine life without it. “What about my shows?” As true as it is, isn’t it kind of worrisome to realize how addicted the world is?

I can assure you that most of the people who say “I’m so busy,” or “I wish I had more time,” probably watch over 30-40 hours of TV per week. What would you do with all that extra time?

Exactly what I was thinking. Maybe you should have changed what you were watching, instead of giving it up completely. I don’t see the difference between watching a DVD and watching a great show like Breaking Bad. It’s good to get your information from multiple sources. Just because it is is not “Main Stream” doesn’t mean it’s more reliable.

There’s plenty of amazing programming out there. From great nonfiction shows like or thought provoking series like Breaking Bad. Not all TV is bad. In fact, I think internet additions are much worse for you.

WE gave it up a long time ago. Most modern entertainment has been overtaken, and not for the common good. Not worth trying to convince others. Impossible to break the grip this mindless medium has on the majority.
