    The way I approach it is, if something big enough happens or it's something that will impact my life directly, I'm going to hear about it from people in my life.

    So I never watch news or read articles or threads on the internet, I focus on my development.

    Fear is a lie, trust God.
     
  3. The Afghanistan war and the Iraq war were both illegal wars and a violation of international law.

    You wanna know who was propping up these wars? The mainstream media. The same media telling us to wear masks and get vaccines. They lied once, don’t think that they aren’t lying now.

  4. Yes, trust in God. I rather hear the words of my pastor and my God than the words of the corporate sellouts on the news.

    If I were you I'd only stick to God.
     
  6. It is definitely just as addictive as porn. Even though news is depressing, if one is not careful they’ll keep tuning in to get another rush or dopamine hit of what appear to be the latest breaking news and current events. That’s the 2nd reason why I want to stay away because it’s addictive.

  9. yeah it's meant to be like that, something to do with psychology n all that
    I don't watch the news on the tv, mostly I watch videos about recent events on the net so I have at least some controll over what I see

    Absolutely. Imagine if everyone was just as addicted to porn but they also talked about it all day every day. That's the news.

    When you look at it that way, you can see it's a very serious issue.

    Rarely watch the news. I believe 24-hour news channels should be canned.

    Guys, have you noticed? They stopped talking about ebola since years. Where is it? The news really be brainwashing people and amplifies a certain problem to the fullest.

    Why is it racist to call COVID the “Chinese Virus,” but we call Ebola after the place it’s from, and same thing with Zika? How come it’s the Spanish flu but any virus out of China gets an acronym or something else?

    The spanish was never spanish to begin with, actually no body really fucking know where it was from, but the first confirmed case of it was in the United States, just saying....

    And covid is the Kung Flu, call me racist, it will still be the Kung Flu for me, it has a nice ring.
     
  15. because corona was basically a new thing to hate asians for (as if we didn't have enough racism already)

    Ebola comes from the river Ebola in Congo D.R. and Zika from the forest Zika in Uganda. Only the spanish flue is named not because of the nationality of the country as people may think but because Spain was the first nation to report its existence.
    As for "Chinese Virus" they can not call it like that because it would imply China created it itself. If there was a flu from China, then they probably could have call it "Chinese Flu", you'd probably think, but isn't the same as Chinese Virus but with Flu replaced, well yes, but a flu is something that comes from either natural factors or biological factors whereas calling it Chinese Virus would imply China has something directly involved with it.

    Yeah, I heard that too but I don't know if there are proofs about that. If there are, why aren't they sanctioning China with huge fees?
