I know people that have never bought a Television in their entire life yet they have several T.V.'s

This seems to be across the board in the united states, So I often think whats the importance?

Why does everyone own a television??

What is being broadcasted ??

We already know its the cause of ADD in children.

Psychologically affecting our minds?

Your brain is more asleep watching television opposed to sleeping!

Any comments ,opinions ???

To tell you the truth when I was a seed, my mom didn't let me watch T.V. till I was like 10 years old, and now I just fuckin hate it. I don't understand it, I find it boring and rediculous, I'm supposed to sit down and stare at a screen all day? Why... I never watch T.V. unless something I really want to see is on.. or like the history channel, science channel, or discovery channel

TV tells us how to act, what to buy, what music to listen to, what movies to see, etc.. we define ourselves according to this. Rather than simply being ourselves; TV shows us the blueprint for how they want us to be, and like good consumers we eat it up.

"...Television 'tells-a-vision' creatin brain atrophy,
when somethings givin its hard to make it naturally,
Robbin us of our visions, no dreams no goals,
Making stupid decisions walking straight into holes..."

television is the video dissemination of information and a vehicle of entertyainment. the information cxomes from the people who give access vis news reports interviews and such programs. the entertainment aspect is purely fictional and to keep peole in the realm of fantasy where anything can be true. the first presents miss information for you don't always get the whole story the second is info tainment for you get information but it is package as entertainment it gives storys and such there is usually some point that is hidden within. yeah your mind can go into atrophy like a muscle you don't use becomes weak and deteriates from lack of exercise. most watchers don't exercise their brain/minds don't read or do brain puzzles they lose their logic and reasoning skills. they watch to keep a watch on the jones smiths and john q publics and now the john does. television makes you mind do this :frusty:

there's nothing wrong with having a TV but there is something wrong with believing you NEED to have TV.

people should ask themselves, why exactly do they watch?

because people use mass media as a way of obtaining knowledge and entertainment....

True that. The only reason I need a fucken tv is to watch NBA and NFL, and listen to the XM or Siruis radio stations. Other than that, fuck it. I dont watch that shit. TV is boring as fuck! Id rather watch porn :)

I really don't watch too much TV cause there really isn't anything on that entertains me anymore. Outside of the few cartoons that I watched as a child like The Simpsons.

But I do need a TV per say...

I have a PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, Dreamcast, and a collection of over 200 DVDs so it would be a shame to not be able to use them...

^^thats actually very true

85% will be the 85% no matter what. most people do not think independently and are followers so anyone can tell them what to do and how to think. Tv is just another tool to use on them.

there is nothing "wrong" with watching TV. the issue isnt "do you watch TV or not".

its about how our social infrastructure is built around these things. people feel that they cant relate to people if they arent up on the latest TV program or sports event or whatever. no one wants to play with the kid or be around the person who doesnt have a television or a video game, etc. this is the goal of marketers and advertisers. to make people feel like they need certain products in their lives to be socially accepted.

we are intelligent and articluate beings and we dont need anything but ourselves to be able to have sufficient social interaction with each other.

since you mentioned games these really affect our children with visuals that desensitize...nowadays there's plethora of War games special ops shit in which you creep up and kill snipe explode the enemy you are fighting... setting up the youth for a military mind?

yeah there is many things that we can do. Tv has apprently made people lazy and has taken away people's ability or desire to interact with people.

again, there is nothing wrong with watching television but to say that people need it is incorrect.

television can give the wrong attitudes impressions wh3en those especially the young don't know are not aware of the manipulation going on. its the spin factor news sports movies sitcoms dramas etc. they manipulate the children at a young age if not through television then look at billboards around your town. look at the ads placed about the stores and the jingles used on the radio. the media over all is used to inform manipulate and spin ideas information and politics.

as for the accessories of the games and satellite cable they just expand on the regular ttv. it was first your local channels then the cable then the satellite dish then came the game systems then came the internet next will be a intermixing of them all or partially. micrsoft wants the computer tv xbox to run together. they got tv dinners just so the family doesn't talk aboyt their day and what not. television has eroded the basic function of society to talk interact and learn new ideas while discovering ones self through that process. basically television with most of technology is making humans less humane.

my problem with tv is the so called journalistic programs.the news. where we are led to believe we are getting objective news reports when in fact the opposite goes. all theese programs are biased toward thier owners which are publically traded companies. like for example the pharmecuetical industries which pay theese programs huge sums of money to advertise products. have doctors they paid off talk about the product on there. this is an example of why the masses are so ignoratnt. MASS media. this is where everyone gets thier information from so its easy to make the world believe a lie. and when someone tells the truth thier simply not allowed on TV. we need to go back to the old days when thier was a box in the town square that anyone could stand on and speak no matter how poor or rich or prominent you are.

that's why i stopped watching the news on tv. well that and also cuz it's too negative sometimes. when i come home i don't need to know about how many people got shot, or how many rapists are still on the run. if there's something important i need to know then i'll hear it by word of mouth, or i'll read the newspaper. at least with the newspaper i can choose what i want to read and what i want to skip. on tv they just keep feeding you the shit.

television that window to the world through the various rooms of this housing planet called earth. where you can see everything under the sun some for free some at a cost. some is news entertainment and information. it sells you dreams fantasies can help imaginations deals out reality sometimes eschewed sometimes very direct. it can become a looking glass to see yourself.
