The news ingestion of Americans is for problem number one. It not only misdevelops their brains so they are incapable of discerning truth and reality--in a sense fully crippling the ability to critically think; but it also blinds them to the real problems--which is the purpose of it to begin with. I have a lot of recent essays about this but I wanted to share a few here if you don't mind.
Sorry. I am always uncomfortable sharing my own stories--but this is one of the reasons we are here )
