Abusing or helping.
    #1574872 - 05/24/03 06:49 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I have seen alot of influence on tv. Things like "think for yourself" and just other little messages that i can relate to. I am watching tv, and i see the jetblue commercial...Everyone is being nice, helping eachother out, being pretty peaceful. They showed a commercial full of people being kind....Then it was followed by JetBlue - Making the world a better place. This is one of the more broad commercials, but there seem to be alot of commercials, shows, and movies aimed at thinking independantly.. Some parts of my being starts thinking that maybe this is what it takes to get people to start thinking. Or is it a commercial, using what people want in order to endorse thier product.

I ate some mushrooms the other night, felt myself turning into a reptile, and watched tv constantly thinking of a post titled "are YOU being brain washed." I hadnt read this post, but it was making me paranoid, as was the TV. I didnt know whether or not this truth i was seaking was just another mask, another path chosen, maybe less travelled, but in the end i still lose. I dunno.

I notice a disturbing trend with the whole think for yourself thing..

You know how punk rockers are all anti-establishment and non-conformist? Well why do they all look the same then? Join the non-conformists! We have sweet outfits! Seems kinda like everybody's an idiot.

TV is saying "think for yourself" and everybody's like "yeah that's right, that's the way to do it! I'll think for myself. How do I do that? I don't know.. well, that guy on TV is thinking for himself by being an anti-globalisation protester I think I'll jump on with those guys. THINK FOR YOURSELF!!!!!!!!"

I agree 100%.  :wink:

People need to stop joining groups of people who think the same, like punks, teeniebopers, Metalheads, hippies, etc. If you fit a type of person, you aren't thinking for yourself!!!!!

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

Join the non-conformists! We have sweet outfits!

Join the non-conforming spiritualists and share our belief that the world will end in 2012! ...that aliens randomly abduct people! ...that everything is one!

This lack of coherence is a big problem found in many belief systems...

Anybody here see John Carpenter's "They Live"? If not I highly recommend it. Not only does it star Rowdy Roddy Piper but when he puts on these glasses he sees subliminal messages everywhere...but it only gets worse. Some of the shit in the movie really makes a good point; a good social commentary. And the fight scene in the ally that lasts for 15 minutes is priceless.

TV is addictive (in such a right is brainwashing alone) i notice if watch tv for an hour i find myself wanting to watch more. The problem is that people around me watch tv, and sometimes i get trapped in the TV trance for hours, and not realize it. :grin:

What I was thinking too. It is the oldest trick in the book. Slight of hand / distraction. It is all very entertaining thought when you look for it.
