TV = Weapon of Mass Deception


The television is a weapon of mass deception. Tell your friends, family, and neighbors.
On average, Americans watch over 4 hours of television every single day. 98% of American households have at least one television, and 49% of Americans openly admit they watch too much television.

Television has had profoundly negative impacts on American cultural and social life. It hinders education and learning, promotes excessive materialism and commercialism, and encourages degenerate, narcissistic, and hedonistic lifestyles. Television promotes violence and unrealistic life expectations. It leads to a sluggish, inactive existence, and is extremely disempowering. (See more television statistics and facts here.)

Our obsession with the television has had a profoundly harmful impact on our overall health, both physical and psychological, as well. Rather than playing outside and interacting with friends and neighbors, children are cooped up indoors, glued to the television. Rather than having positive, productive discussions and social interactions with their family, friends, and neighbors, many adults instead opt to turn on the television. Very few people read anymore, preferring instead to watch television or movies.

But how many Americans recognize the television for what it truly is? Most naively assume the television is simply a form of entertainment and information, when in reality the television is a weapon of mass deception, social and cultural distortion, and mass mind control.
