Our Personal Worlds are Filled With Angst
The News We See May Not Really Be Newsworthy
We have allowed the “News Media Industry” to fill our personal worlds with fears, and even an unspoken dread, of this present moment.
We watch in awe and, even horror, as we are bombarded with the worlds’ worst moments as they are dredged up and thrown into our faces–day by day, hour by hour. If I stand in line at the bank, or walk through the airport I can’t avoid it. Makes me want to scream.
What Passes as News Is Meant to Be Contrived-Sensationalism
This “NEWS” is happening thousand times over in the population of 6 billion people. We can’t see each one–so a few of the most gory ones are hammered at us. How in the “HELL” can we expect our young one (Old ones like me too.) to maintain a healthy attitude when we poison their minds with this barrage of money-making content.
Young Minds Need Time and Space to Mature
Mature minds need “Reality” to meet the day, and to meet the people in their lives. We need to not be overburdened with the “Selected Horror Stories” that cause us to fear the next “nock on our door. We can’t be shielded from the problems of the world–we want to be sympathetic to other countries–as we have our own problems.
Critical Thinking Will Not Solve This Problem
Once we have seen the “News”, we can’t erase it from our brains–we can’t un-ring the bell. We can’t keep it from ringing–and we are the ones “For Whom the Bell Tolls.”
