James Posted August 4, 2021 Share Posted August 4, 2021 This video will introduce to you the idea that modern media is making us sick. We are not only over-consuming information, but we're also consuming it in a way that makes our body's immune system go into overdrive and attack itself. This video gives you some ideas for how to cure yourself of this "sickness" by changing your media diet and giving you some tips on how to beat the sickness! I was browsing around YouTube and stumbled across this video. This is a topic I have been thinking about a lot lately as I feel it is becoming extremely blatant that the modern-day big news and social media players are spreading fear and shutting down the free flow of ideas. This is concerning not only for the quality of life in your own personal life but also on a much bigger scale. It's not hard to see that many social media and news outlets are actually running campaigns and simply trying to manipulate people into believing what they want them to believe, as opposed to showing you all sides of a story or even just letting you come up with your own opinion. It has been proven over and over again that when people are scared, they will stop thinking for themselves and simply do anything to feel safe again. It gets to the point where even smart people become stupid about certain things. We as human beings have a need to feel safe, it's not a bad thing in itself, but the problem lies in trying to achieve it when we cannot. You may think you have seen it all when reading this but I assure you, there is an endless stream of even more outrageous and shocking things that are always happening. How do we fix this? One thing that we can all do is try to be more open-minded. Just because an article or a video makes you angry doesn't mean it's not true. Try to see the other side of every story and don't jump to conclusions before actually researching for yourself. Seek out information from all sources available to you. I really feel there has been a strong lack of consideration to looking at all sides of an issue and that is the primary problem. We are viewing our problems through just one lens when in reality for every action there is always a reaction. Those possible reactions should always be evaluated before making a decision. What steps as a society do you think we need to take to start to correct this issue? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
