TV reduces brain function, intelligence and creativity, lowers job performance, lowers grades, shuts down empathy towards others, reduces lifespan, causes unemployment and emotional immaturity, increases crime, disease, depression, boredom, complaining, aggression, and incompetence.
TV makes you miserable and then kills you. TV destroys society.
These are not theories or speculations. These are the well-known facts of TV’s effects, understood in the psychology community where countless studies have been confirming these same conclusions over the past 30 years. The deafening silence on this topic in the media is a testament to the control that the media holds over public discourse and people’s minds. It is a quiet surrender to the most insidious, and most preventable, mental disorder in history.
