When I wrote my mini-book about the mass media, I advocated a substantial withdrawal from the mass media.
I used to find this advice difficult to follow, but it gets easier all the time - since I find nearly everything online, on TV, in newspapers and magazines, in modern books... to be intolerable.
It is really no hardship to do-without the dull or disgusting propaganda for evil that makes up almost every form of communication nearly all of the time.
Indeed; I find it increasingly difficult to get myself to engage with any form of mass media; because it is just so actively-unpleasant. I start quite a lot of books/ movies/ TV series; but cumulatively I cannot bear the in-my-face preaching of political correctness.
It's like I'm being subjected to a behavioural modification program designed suppress and to extinguish my old addiction; with each media engagement being punished.
Which is (unintentionally) A Good Thing.
