Turn off the Idiot Box (T.V.)


In today’s society many, and I mean many, many, people get all of their information through television. Movies and Hollywood have a profound impact on how the masses think. Television, throughout this present culture, has portrayed men as weaklings and women as strong figures and the youth of our society as wise people to be looked up and listened to. All of this is a complete fallacy. If you stand back and carefully watch what is going on in our society, you will notice that the masses are being brain washed and conditioned to believe a reality that is completely pretend and not real. Television re-wires your mind and alters your consciousness; Studies find that children’s brains are not developing properly; TV turns you into a zombie. Here is what Alex Jones had to say at Info wars, (http://www.infowars.com/the-idiot-box-how-tv-is-turning-us-all-into-zombies/)

Two separate studies this month alone have found that excessive amounts of television, even if it is merely on in the background, can detrimentally effect the development of children’s brains, to the point where they struggle to socially engage when they become older. Add to this the already extensively documented impact that the television has on all of us, the power it has to literally alter our consciousness and shut down critical thinking, and it is no wonder that it was long ago dubbed the idiot box. As reported by Reuters this month, researchers from the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW), found that background noise emitted from television is so distracting and mesmerizing to children that it is impacting their ability to interact with other human beings and potentially slowing down cognitive thinking and language development.

Over at wiki answers here is an interesting quote from a post left by an anonymous person:

The television set is not the idiot; it is referring to the people watching it. Actually it’s not the idiot box but, the people watching it that are the idiots. They become idiots because the TV makes their intelligence and creativity sub normal.

The Main stream media (lame stream media) are experts in conditioning the masses how to think. Many teachers in our country give home work to students that consist of watching some brain washing science program on public television. Did you know that the schools over in New York city have successfully brain washed students into believing in global warming? There is no diversity of thought. The verdict is still out on the fallacy of man made global warming, but many are lulled into a stupor believing this nonsense propagated through the main stream television media garbage.

The greatest propagandist was the Nazi jack ass Joseph Goebbels. Here is what he had to say:

The rank and file are usually much more primitive than we imagine. Propaganda must therefore always be essentially simple and repetitious. The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly… it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Joseph Goebbels Nazi Propaganda Minister.

Here is another quote from Adlof Hitler:

How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don’t think.- Adolf Hitler

Take it from Goebbels and Hitler, true experts on mass-brainwashing. Television is doing that today to many people, just look around. The American corporate mass-media is the world’s greatest practitioner of what its student Goebbels preached: repeating simple-minded lies over and over for months and years, until the lies take on a life of their own and all the American sheeple repeat them unthinkingly as commonly accepted ‘facts’.

“So long as they continued to work and breed, their other activities were without importance. Left to themselves, like cattle turned loose upon the plains of Argentina, they had reverted to a style of life that appeared to be natural to them, a sort of ancestral pattern. They were born, they grew up in the gutters, they went to work at twelve, they passed through a brief blossoming period of beauty and sexual desire, they married at twenty, they were middle-aged at thirty, they died, for the most part, at sixty. Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer, and, above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult.” – George Orwell, 1984

The fact is that mass media, especially through television, is a source not actively or critically attended to. A researcher named Herbert Krugman, who later became manager of public-opinion research at General Electric, decided to try to discover what goes on physiologically in the brain of a person watching TV. He elicited the co-operation of a twenty-two-year-old secretary and taped a single electrode to the back of her head. The wire from this electrode connected to a computer.

Flicking on the TV, Krugman began monitoring the brain-waves of the subject What he found through repeated trials was that within about thirty seconds, the brain-waves switched from predominantly beta waves, indicating alert and conscious attention, to predominantly alpha waves, indicating an unfocused, receptive lack of attention: the state of aimless fantasy and daydreaming below the threshold of consciousness. When Krugman’s subject turned to reading through a magazine, beta waves reappeared, indicating that conscious and alert attentiveness had replaced the daydreaming state.

What surprised Krugman, who had set out to test the effect of TV-viewing on the mind, was how rapidly the alpha-state emerged. Further research revealed that the brain’s left hemisphere, which processes information logically and analytically, tunes out while the person is watching TV. This tuning-out allows the right hemisphere of the brain, which processes information emotionally and noncritically, to function unimpeded. It appears, wrote Krugman, “that the mode of response to television is more or less constant and very different from the response to print. That is, the basic electrical response of the brain is clearly related to the medium. Television is a communication medium that effortlessly transmits huge quantities of information not thought about at the time of exposure.”

The key phrase in Krugman’s findings was that TV transmits information not thought about at the time of exposure. As Herbert Krugman noted, we do not consciously or rationally attend to the material resonating with our unconscious depths at the time of transmission. Later, however, when we encounter a store display, or a real-life situation, or a name on a ballot that conjures up our television experience of the candidate, a wealth of associations is triggered.

Women, for instance, are carefully trained by media to view themselves as inadequate. They are taught that other women, through the purchases of clothes, cosmetics, food, vocations, avocations, education, etc., are more desirable and feminine than themselves. Her need to constantly revivify her value when compared with this false image through the purchase of merchandise becomes an overwhelming preoccupation, profitable for the merchandisers, but potentially disastrous for the individual. Thus fear, much like all types of emotion, makes people highly vulnerable to subliminal management and control technology. Through repeated, subliminal appeals and reinforcements of these fears, people can be induced into buying, and thinking, almost anything.

The brainwashing of Americans is too effective a political ploy for the puppet masters to suddenly let the truth get in the way. The pattern is clear: Say what you want people to believe for the front page and on TV (like man made global warming, taxing the rich to benefit the poor, gun control laws and other stupid crap like that), then whisper a halfhearted correction or apology that slips under the radar. It is really quite ingenious in its cynical effectiveness, and American’s only have themselves to blame for being a victim of it.

So, Turn off the Television and become a doer.

God Bless and remember that God gave you a brain to use.


  • Great article.

    I fucking hate TV. The brainwave study that you mentioned explains why one might get hypnotized by curiously glancing at something TV for a bit. Before you know it 10 minutes have passed by.

    TV is fucking ridiculous. Rarely, I’ll watch a few seconds of sports highlights or old mma fights, simply because watching someone beat the shit out of each other on a field or in a cage gets me fired up. TV is still trash. Especially any dramatic story shit. Anyone who spends most of their time glued to a tv screen is out of touch with reality. I know because I’ve seen it.

    You’ve gained a new subscriber because of this article. Keep up the good shit.

    I so love this article!! I tell people at work that I do not watch TV and they look at me like I’m growing a second head! Television really has become brain numbing and brain washing.
