Gradually catching up on all the blog posts I missed, while away. This post from Eric is essential reading. He says what I would like to say, only he does it with eloquence and perfection.
I went online today to do some research. I figured mainstream news feeds might have the data I sought. What an ugly mistake. For readers unaware, I don’t watch television/cable, nor do I read newspapers or magazines. And my online experience today reaffirmed why I do not.
I quickly scanned several well-known sources and 37 out of 39 articles (yes, I counted) featured stories about doom and gloom. The ‘hit parade’ included headlines screaming about:
- climate change
- social injustices
- illegal immigration
- police brutality
- political propaganda
- economic demise
- inadequate militaries
- religious superiority
- murders, deaths, out of control crime
- extremists everything
Not a single positive, feel good or constructive story. Just fear and demise.
