Jerry Mander, author of “In the Absence of the Sacred” and “Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television”, describes the drawbacks of television. An excerpt from the extended interviews of What A Way To Go: Life At The End Of Empire. A middle class white guy comes to grips with Peak Oil, Climate Change, Mass Extinction, Population Overshoot and the demise of the American Lifestyle.
Most thinking people already realize the basic truth TV = Bad. However, Mander spells it in a way that will likely reinvigorate your ire for the way we are perpetually kept dumbed down, addicted, and isolated from both ourselves and others/nature.
