I was on the bus the other day and I saw this lady reading a celebrity magazine. I was looking over her shoulder to see what she was exposing herself to. It all seemed like useless information about the lives of celebrities. I thought to myself, why would people even care about this kind of stuff? I then realized how stuff like this distracted people from the real issues of the world. I would say that picking up a newspaper would be more productive, but these aren't any better either, being filled with propaganda and BS; the only reason why people read newspapers these days is for the celebrity gossip section, anyway. I then extended this thought into the sports industry. People pick up sports magazines and read about their favorite athletes and sports teams. By indulging in all of this useless information, they become totally distracted from how badly they're being f*cked by our "leaders", and what's really going on behind the scenes. It seems like everything out there is a distraction. Everything from magazines, to video games, to sports, mainstream music, TV. Everything. Not only do they distract people, but they affect the very way we perceive reality. It seems like people would rather discuss the latest celebrity scandal than to discuss world events or spiritual topics. People would rather play War-like video games, than to question the very wars that are being orchestrated in the real world. People would rather watch a football game than to watch the skies and observe/question mother nature. People continually seek external knowledge and answers from others; We have forgotten to look inside ourselves; for deep within us, lies all the knowledge and answers we'll ever need. We are becoming more stupid, and we don't even realize it.
