And not the kind of drug you’d probably truly enjoy. I’ve always enjoyed listening to Terence McKenna talk about social issues and our culture as a whole. In this video, McKenna talks about television, and how your TV communicates mass-violence and brainwashing materials 24/7.
The average American now watches TV about as much as they work; 40 hours a week. That’s 8 hours of television, 5 days a week. Isn’t that just insane? Going out into the world and seeing nature, new people, and new places is better than any television show you’ll ever watch.
Plus there’s no political ads, and this time of year, I imagine you’d consider that a perk.
