    dotsPresent Day Madnessdots

    Flickering golden
    idiot box. Symbol of salvation
    from loneliness, boredom. Sadness you create
    shining dull in my corner. Multiplied
    by a plague through our homes; poisoning slowly
    the great minds. To leave sludge-filled
    skulls in your wake.
    Murderers. Rapists. Arsonists.
    Bedwetting pieces of scum that drool
    empty-eyed at you worshiping, flashing
    in the dark room, chasing away
    the monsters in the closet along
    with the faeries and angels outside
    the curtained window. Manufacturing
    the true evil of humanity
    under the guise of teaching or entertainment.

      Don't forget the adoration of technology that television is only a small part of. Social media is probably the most common current source of addictive behavior because it does precisely what you point out in this post (and much more).

      i like the idea of the dark room....and how watching tv can develop ideas in our heads about reality...how tv can warp it, shape it to fit its needs...

    we definitely spend too much time with its exposure.

    yes, it's Madness---no doubt about that.

      No argument here. Just when we think we have gone totally bonkers all we have to do is turn on the set and see how "normal" we are.
