    That's actually a reasonable, and well-written reply.

    So since I forgot to reply to your post then, you've been building up anger and rage against me all this time? ;D

    Wow, it's sounds like you're agreeing exactly with Laurynas orginal post.

    How nice of you to reveal your true colors! :D

    Sounds like you're living a very healthy, balanced and productive lifestyle and in effect agree with many of the principles highlighted in this thread.

    So why are you so adverse to the JF and the op's views?

    Are you going to tell me tv is harmless and there is no agenda behind it?

    This is terrible. You give us your paranoid propaganda in a completely unrelated forum and then insult the people who call you out on your crap.

    The condescension you and Laurynas have for the forum members who don't hesitate to question you is unbelievable and quite frankly, reflects immaturity and poor character. There's a word for people who spread their misguided ideas as the undeniable truth as you have, it's called delusional.

    The only message I've received from you so far is, "I know better than you." And that's, well, sad.

    Really?

    That's the only message you've received from me?

    Sounds like you should brush up on your reading comprehension skills there buddy. ;)

    That's exactly what I'm wondering.

    His reply seems to be in complete agreement with me and Laurynas.

    Don't understand why he's lashing out against the three of us now. ???

    Well that's ironic.

    No, by following meaning listening to what they tell them. IE Twitter, Jersey Shore portraying banging skanks as being best life has to offer, etc etc.

    And no, you actually did reply to that (although a page and a half later, grrr lol). I didn't reply on your journal because it's your journal... rebooting and all that, not the place to talk about socio-political issues.

    Did I? I forgot what I wrote.

    Sometimes I'm pretty late in replying to people's comments in my journal, don't hold it against me, haha

    Look back at my first post on this thread. Up to that point it seemed like the general sense on here was all the "oh yeah, tv is terrible man, throw that shit out, all the evil in this world is because of mass media" type of shenanigans. And I said... well, I said it already in my first post.

    Oh really?

    I'm quite sure that this takes the cake for most condensing comment of the thread thus far.

    I didn't get that vibe, I just saw a few links to some videos highlighting televisions influence which is indeed become very big and in some cases taken over people's lives as they become consumed by it. I rather there be threads like this bringing awareness of tv's negative effects - however presented -, than there be nothing at all leaving people to think that limitless amount of consuming mainstream media and tv is healthy

    The sarcasm you used when you talked about checking twitter to look up news on kardashian and then sitting on the couch to watch to tv while eating donuts, is actually true of a large portion of people sadly.

    If you feel a point is too extreme why not highlight in the right way and offer a counter argument instead of throwing the baby out with the bathwater and ruining a good debate for everyone?

    Okay, so in your first post in this thread...

    You came in with a condescending attitude implying that anyone who criticizes media does so due to a immaturity and that we'll eventually "grow out of it"

    Next, you kept attacking our character with false assumptions implying that the only people who believe this way are "middle-class Rastas"

    Interestingly, you only attacked us with faulty assumptions and character assassination, not once commenting on the statistics and science that Laurynas posted.
     
  15. Journey to Freedom

    That's exactly it, Laurynas posted statistics and videos for people to think about.

    Modus and tsmith came in emotionally invested in the topic, and turned the entire topic into histrionics.

    Throwing the baby out, lol. Yeah I agree it does cover a large portion of people, but it's not like they don't have a choice.

    Do you really need someone else to tell you that watching a lot of tv on your ass eating ice cream isn't good for you?? And if you question whether or not that's good for you, (here's another thing I love about modern world), you can find out in a manner of seconds (the internet).

    We have the options laid out in front of us man, we have the freedom to choose. The people that choose that path... well, that's their choice. Not everyone is a able to make the correct decisions to improve their lives, even though it's so fucking easy in this modern day... compared to you know, 20,000 years ago. Those same people would have been the ones starving due to poor decisions, or for a lack of a better term, the beta's... as they are now.

    I know JtF loves that term ;].

    Best topic I've seen, I wish more people would wake up.

    Since you knew you couldn't really argue against the validity of Laurynas' statistics and brain science posted in his video...

    You decided to distract people from the orginal points made in the topic by bringing up exaggerated versions of things I've said elsewhere on this forum in order to derail the topic and engaged in a poor, ill-fated attempt at character assassination.

    Well apparently we need people like gary, to tell us long hours of porn is destructive and can sometimes be the cause of ed. Sometimes the obvious is not so obvious due to indoctrination and the belief that because everyone else is doing it then it must be ok/good.

    Exactly.
