Why a “Media Blockade” Could be Right for You | The Daily Bell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 13, 2018

You will discover there is a whole different world that the media do not want you to see.

The New York Times ran a piece called The Man Who Knew Too Little.

Too little of what the NYT wants him to know.

By Joe Jarvis

There are things that matter, and there are things that you can control. There are few things that matter and that you can control. Focus on these.

For instance, preventing global nuclear war matters. But you cannot control it.

You can control what color car you drive. But this doesn’t really matter.

But eating healthy matters, and you can control it.

The New York Times ran a piece called The Man Who Knew Too Little. He decided to create a news blockade in his life after Trump got elected last year….

..The fact that it’s working for him — “I’m emotionally healthier than I’ve ever felt,” he said — has made him question the very value of being fed each day by the media. Why do we bother tracking faraway political developments and distant campaign speeches? What good comes of it? Why do we read all these tweets anyway?

“I had been paying attention to the news for decades,” Mr. Hagerman said. “And I never did anything with it.”…

…This guy could have tried to petition his town, state, or the federal government to buy that piece of land and fix it up. He could have tried to force other people to pay for what he thinks is a good idea and beneficial contribution to society.

But he didn’t. He just went ahead and decided to take the project on himself.

We could all do that. Instead of wasting time, money, and energy engaging in the political mess, we can go do our thing and make a bigger impact. Feed the hungry, develop technology, farm your land, buy good products–whatever it is that you are passionate about.

A better society will be built by individuals engaging in what they can control, and letting go of what they cannot.

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.

Be seeing you
