i started the day with reading the news on the net. how incredibly depressive it is. i always wonder how to balance it out. i want to know what is going on, to a certain degree. at the same time, news is not exactly a balanced medium which give you the full picture. and what do we do with all these facts? do we actually need to know what is going on? does it change much? i feel it mostly creates lots of fears and a general distrust against the world. and that for sure doesn’t do anyone good. this is also the reason i got rid of my TV many years ago. haven’t regretted that since. so, i think i told you that before, but i recommend a life without TV. and about reading and digesting the news, i would be happy to hear your take on it.
