I don’t watch television. I haven’t since 2011 and find I don’t even miss it. When I’m able to stay current using the vast selection of online media that’s out there, why would I need to watch television?
It all started back in 2011, when I had lost interest in watching anything that was on. I called my cable provider, cancelled my subscription, and liberated myself from mainstream media’s mental enslavement.
But it wasn’t until years after the chatter machine was turned off that I fully realized all the negative ways it had affected my life.
I now appreciate the silence I have at home and will never subscribe to that noise machine ever again. Since gaining freedom from this all-too-common trap in today’s society, my life has improved significantly, and I can promise you that yours will too if you so choose to pull the plug.
So without further ado, I’d like to give you 9 reasons why you may want to stop watching television and why you’ll probably have no regrets about it.
1- IT’S A TIME WASTER. There are so many things you could be doing with the time you watch TV. Study has it that the average American watches 35.5 hours of television per week. That’s practically a full-time job! Can you imagine all the stuff you’ve been missing out on? All the books you could have read, all the conversations you could have had, all the talents you could have cultivated? Realize you will continue to miss out on these insanely enriching activities as long as you continue giving your undivided attention to your beloved TV set.
What about the entertainment you ask? Well, we all have to ask ourselves just how much entertainment do we need? There comes a point where you have to wonder if your quest for entertainment stems from you not having anything better to do. If we were all passionate about our dreams, with a burning desire to dive into them, would the first thing we do when we have some free time is plop ourselves in front of the TV and zone out for hours on end? I don’t think so.
It’s time that many of us looked inside ourselves and found out what we really want out of life and then just go for it. Zoning out in front of the TV only helps to keep you pacified and indifferent to your life’s goals. Everyday you are being lulled to sleep with cheap entertainment while your dreams are being snatched away from you. And the worst part is you don’t even realize it.
Do yourself a big favor and choose to no longer let that TV screen keep you from manifesting your dreams.
2- YOU DON’T NEED TO WORSHIP OTHERS. They want you to worship who? Ain’t no one better than you. Not to say that you’re better than others, but you certainly don’t need to bow down to anyone else. We are all equal in the eyes of our Creator. Needless to say, you don’t need to buy into the celebrity worship culture of today, much of which comes from television.
Television has a way making others seem larger than life simply because they appear on your screen at home. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but these people on your TV screen are not gods. They’re regular people who sit on the toilet everyday and scrub their butts in the shower just like you and me. The fact that they may seem larger than life is because your corporate elitist media would like you to think so. They want you to believe that you are an unworthy sucker and that you need to look up to them because they have all the money, beauty, talent, knowledge, connections, and power. Why shouldn’t you feel left out? They’re part of the inner circle, and you’re not.
Know your worth and don’t fall for the foolishness. Realize that the folks of TV Land have nothing of value to offer you, but they’re desperately seeking your attention. Turn that TV off and choose to no longer give them your time of day.
3- YOU DON’T WANT TO BE PROGRAMMED. What a great way to mass hypnotize the public than through television. There’s a reason why they call the shows TV programs. And they have a program for everyone. There’s even one just for you.
This is where they program you on what is PC and what is not. What’s cool and what’s not. What’s real and what’s not. What you should want, what you should wear, how should think, how you should talk, and how you should act. You get the gist…
You’re not supposed to think for yourself. That’s their job. You just leave the thinking up to them and all will be well.
Oh, and I almost forgot about those slick subliminal messages and symbols. Yeah, the ones they like to secretly stick in the commercials, music videos, and movies. The ones they’re hoping you didn’t catch. And most of the time you actually don’t. But your sub-conscious always does.
When it comes to the media’s programming, you must wonder what they’re suggesting or the ideas you’ve already agreed to without your conscious knowledge. If you knew what they were, you would most likely reject them at once. This is why hypnotism is required to slip them in. It’s a slick trick, but it works every time.
Your mind is your most precious asset. Keep unauthorized ideas out of your mind and choose to no longer be hypnotized against your own will.
4- TO KEEP THE NEGATIVITY OUT. Why is it that when you watch the news, all they ever report on is the bad stuff? Does anything good ever happen?
There’s always some major controversial debate. And depending on which network you watch, they always have a side to take. (Why can’t TV reporters just report? Who are they to counsel the public on which side to take?)
If it’s not some controversial subject that they have to instruct you on, then they have all the violent crimes that took place for the day. The thing is, you’re not supposed to think this world is beautiful. In your mind it’s supposed to be a hostile, dark, and scary world. You had better be scared. You had better be on the defense. You had better pray that the sky doesn’t come crashing down. And most importantly, they set it up so that your hero government can come to save the day!
How about all of the crime shows depicting details of violent rapes, shootings, and murders? There’s also all the sexually explicit content they shove in your face? Do you really need to be kept on the horny all day? Could it be that there’s nothing more important than sex in life?
One has to wonder if life is really that morbid? I can tell you from this side that it’s not. But you have to be willing to kick the negativity machine out of your house for you to be able to finally see this.
5- YOU DON’T WANT TO BE LIED TO IN YOUR OWN HOME. Most people believe everything they see and hear on television. As the old saying goes, “If it’s on TV, then it must be true.” What’s funny is that this saying couldn’t be furthest from the truth. When it comes to the word television, its true meaning is actually staring at us right in the face. Quite simply, it’s a machine that tells–lies-to-your-vision.
When you are fed a bunch of lies everyday and believe without question, you build an immunity to them. Particularly if the lies are always from the same source, your mainstream media. Their lies become your norm, your logic, and your reality.
But once you realize there is a world of alternative media out there and have stopped subscribing to the talking heads of the mainstream media, you’re eyes and ears will become quite the bullshit radar they were designed to be. You’ll have multiple sources to compare reality to and will see the varying contrasts between each one. And this is when you’ll get better at detecting truth from the lies and the real from the fake.
I personally would not allow anyone, no matter how expert they claim to be, to come into my home, lie to me, and then take me for a crazy ride. If you don’t want anyone insulting your intelligence in your own home, and if you don’t want to go for that ride, then I’d advise you get a grip on what is reality and seek out other sources for your news and entertainment.
Then after a good dose of truth and reality, you will want to throw that fake lying machine right out of your house.
6- TO SAVE MONEY. Gone are the days when TV service was free. Today you gotta pay for it all. Whether its cable, satellite, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or whatever else is out there. I don’t keep track anymore. All I know is they’re all gonna cost you.
Why waste your money on something that’s there to lie to you and take up your time? I can think of so many useful things this money could go towards.
How about keeping your money in your pocket and using it to fund an upcoming vacation, to further your education, to start that business you’ve always wanted, or just add it to your savings.
You’re smart like that. I’m sure you’ll find something awesome to make use of all that extra money that you’ll be saving.
7- TO NO LONGER SUPPORT MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND THEIR SPONSORS. The more you engage in the programming that the networks have laid out for you, the more you support their advertisers. And the schmuckier you get, and the richer they get.
I won’t imply that television is all about “making that money”, but I will say that money does play a large part in their world.
The puppet masters not only want to have you under their thumb, but they also want to get rich while at it. It’s a win-win situation for them. The higher the ratings, the more they can pitch to advertisers, and the higher the chance for their advertisers to brainwash you into buying their toxic products. Everyone wins (except for you).
Wanna be the perfect pawn for their agendas? Then by all means, please continue watching television.
8- IT’S BORING. Ok. How long has TV been around now? Some 70 years or so? Do we realize that it’s still the same old-same-old since the back in the day when it first began?
The same old sitcoms, laugh tracks, talk shows, sports competitions, news broadcasts, politics, celebrity line-ups… The faces may have changed over the years but it’s still the same show repeating itself over and over. Does anything ever change in TV Land???
Who wants to watch these lame-asses on a late night talk show and be conditioned as to what is funny and then cued when to laugh? The laugh tracks are so obvious.
Who wants to watch a bunch of robotic, tight-ass politicians debate over which party (Democrats or Republicans) is more superior? They’ve been at it for more than a century now. Somebody please make it stop!
Who wants to listen to a bunch of self-important celebrity elitists go on as if their word is law, most of which is scripted anyway. The general population can’t even relate to these paid actors. The same ones who will never go off script. And those that have dared to go off script, we know they always end up on the unemployment line.
It’s about time we watched someone else for once.
It’s become quite obvious that with the success of social media, the current generation is much more interested in watching and listening to real people.
It’s becoming extremely painful to watch the people of TV Land, because at this point they’re just plain boring!
9- IT’S OUTDATED. With the internet era upon us, I seriously think television will die within the next 20 years.
The current millennial generation has absolutely no interest in what goes on in that world. As fast as our world is changing, I can’t imagine what the next generation will care about. All I know is that it certainly won’t be about what those boring dinosaurs have to say on their serious news networks and talk shows.
The glory days of television are over and its days are numbered. The puppet masters know this. This why they’re scrambling to get their networks and celebrities established on YouTube and other web-based platforms before they become irrelevant.
What’s funny is they don’t even realize that they’re already irrelevant.
