    The media really is a major problem in western society

    Greedy corporations, ad agencies, and marketing has poisoned society.

    Once I stopped allowing myself to fall for what was being constantly advertised to me (junk food and the need to socialize with toxic people) my health improved 200%. I’m went from being overweight and weak to being unrecognizable athletic and strong. My eating habits improved. My skin is almost flawless.

    I wished I listened to a couple of people
    back in the early 1990s when they said to stop watching TV. If I did, I would have ended up being a governor or president of the United States.

    I changed my life in 2020 at age of 40.
    Imagine if I would have changed my life at the age of 10 when someone first told me to stop
    watching TV.

    Re: The media really is a major problem in western society

    TV and movies when I was growing up weren't too bad of course there was some crap but there was some good stuff too. The thing now is it's all the same it has all been made "Woke" so you get the same messages in everything. The corporate world has also gone Woke and many businesses suffer for it too.

    But yeah I would do things a lot differently if I could go back. But then again, I can also see advantages to how things have worked out for me so sometimes I just think meh.

    Re: The media really is a major problem in western society

    It’s not the shows or movies. It’s the marketing and advertisement. TV was meant to advertise more products to us. The same goes for movies.

    Once I got out of the matrix, my life improved 200% I was considered the sickest person in my family and extended family until the age of 40. People in my family had cancer and I was still considered the sickest one. I was referred to as sickly. Now everyone is looking up to me when it comes to strength and health.

    All I did was focus on myself and stop listening to advertisers.

    The junk food industry makes it seem like beautiful people constantly consume their products. LOL. They don’t.

    Oh and muscular lean guys aren’t pounding down beers. They pound down protein shakes. LOL.

    Re: The media really is a major problem in western society

    I have to agree with you, but i would take it even further

    The media is controlled by the CIA/FBI and people who are Oligarch Billionaires who literally have no regard for human or animal lives. The saying of divide and conquer is as true as it gets but usually we imagine a outside enemy , when really its the people who are suppose to be closest to us. Even the divide among the so called left and right i believe is partially fabricated by the media. i get that we have different ideas of how the world should operate but really I'm sure at the end of the day we humans just want to do what we think is morally best. Ever since i cut out Tv, social media and even YouTube my mental health has seen a dramatic increase. Now i just try to read books, live a good life and avoid the viewpoints of those who have literally never spent a day in my shoes aka the media.

    Re: The media really is a major problem in western society

    Marx said that "religion is the opiate of the masses", and he was absolutely right: religion and superstition was indeed the opiate of 19th century Russian peasantry. The opiate of the 20th Century was TV.

    Now? The opium of the masses is opium. Oxycodone. That, and social media 'likes'.

    Actually the problem isn't people with money, corporations, ad agencies or anything else. The problem is that these people are trained feminist dogs. All they do is spread the feminist propaganda as much as they can.

    Women's right to vote has also made them the biggest political force in western nations. So the leaders they elect are all feminists/women's rights supporters and these leaders then run the country/enable these feminist-owned media companies.

    Women as school teachers is another indoctrination-related problem. They brainwash innocent little kids with their sick propaganda.

    It's a vicious cycle.

    Re: The media really is a major problem in western society

    I would hate to have to raise a kid in this era, trying to convince him (or her) everything he's being told at school and 95% of what he sees on the Internet is poison. Kids aren't smart enough yet to have figured out that the majority opinion is rarely correct, and that it can even bring you to ruin. I'd be viewed as the weird parent. Maybe even reported to the Division of Child Brainwashing for my views because they don't "line up," so to speak.

    Re: The media really is a major problem in western society

    Thank God I stopped watching TV then I was 18! I've invested all the available free time since then into my career and into building new skills! The only thing that eats more time than TV are girlfriends, but thankfully I found MGTOW when I was 16 and never engaged into serious relationships.... God I would like to know how much time, energy and money that saved me over the years!
    The media these days is outright evil! They spread false information and propaganda all the time. For me as a native Austrian I'd like to throw up when I listen to the media here, our state news outlet with their monopoly can't even translate right!
    Knowledge is half the battle and when you know their dirty little tricks they don't work anymore!

    Greetings from the enslaved mountainous country!

    If you live in the United States, you MUST read foreign news. I've found the best one to be Al Jazeera English. Don't let the fact that it's owned by a Middle Easterner throw you. The owner does not dictate the news stories covered or how they're covered. He simply lets his journalists be journalists and thus pursue the truth.

    Re: The media really is a major problem in western society

    The media is a problem in western society although I hate the phrase “mainstream media” since nobody will define what exactly makes a media “mainstream”. I also hate the fact that so many people complain about the media without being specific or suggesting an alternative.

    I have little interest in politics since I believe western society is going down regardless of who is in charge.

    The Newspapers - (from my UK perspective)
    The British tabloid press are terrible, manufactured outrage, misreporting, celebrity gossip etc. The daily express is still printing stories about princess Diana 23 years later………
    A work colleague once picked up his paper and said “I’m sick of reading about Katie Price” (former “model” who is a post wall, desperate attention seeker). He didn’t like the answer I gave him “well stop buying that newspaper then”.

    This is the core of the problem, all media requires buyers. In the case of newspapers or cable news. Or viewers in the case of the internet that sells advertising space. It’s a simple case of supply and demand.

    People like to read stuff that makes them angry. For example “Christmas is being banned because it offends Muslims”. This has been debunked so many times it defies belief when it gets printed for the 10th year in a row.

    Science constantly gets misreported or some preliminary study with a small sample size gets reported as fact. Coffee increases the risk of cancer one month then decreases it the next. Sowing the seeds of mistrust.

    People on Facebook seem obsessed with complaining about the BBC because of its apparent left-wing liberal bias. This is fuelled by the licence fee (link for benefit of non uk readers).
    Television licensing in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia It’s not difficult to opt out and stop paying the licence fee, my dad did this a year ago and we can watch hundreds of TV channels including news on the firestick. Most people won’t do the logical thing and cut off the BBCs funding because they just want to be angry.

    People will complain about the likes of one media company like the BBC being biased only to go and post something from the likes of Breitbart or some random stranger on youtube.I have consistently noticed that people who scream “don’t trust the mainstream media” the loudest are the first people to quote it the second it says something they want to hear.

    Another consistent observation is the claim “X is being ignored by the mainstream media”. Recently I seen a post of this nature about the murder of police officer Kieth Palmer.
    It took 10 seconds to type his name into google news and come up with dozens of mentions from “mainstream media”. I have seen this so many times that the phrase “ignored by the mainstream media” = “what i’m saying is garbage”.

    The internet has become a massive problem, the likes of youtube recommended videos based on what the viewer has already watched. This has the effect of leading the people down a rabbit hole of a single viewpoint or one side of the political spectrum. The left and right (who are equally irrational in my opinion) are drifting further and further apart.

    This is what everyone should be doing, looking at events from a different viewpoint. That also means reading and watching things from people with a different viewpoint to you.

    Above all ALWAYS TRACE A CLAIM BACK TO ITS SOURCE !!!!!!!!
    I find any reports of a “study” or a screenshot of “an official source” that contains no link back to that source is nearly always a red flag.

    Since it’s my long term goal to escape the west and live abroad I have taken an interest in world events and try to identify future conflicts and flashpoints. One thing I noticed is the amount of wars and genocides in the world that don’t get a mention over here.



    This covers a few of the points I mentioned above, a thought provoking look at school shootings without mentioning politics or gun control.
    Men are becoming MGTOW by the millions, most without ever having heard the term. They are simply doing what all living organisms finding themselves in a toxic environment do. They adapt to it or remove themselves from it. Females are not liking either the adaptations or the removal.

    Don't listen to Australian news.... It's been proven they have used paid actors in "News" clips. The local papers will publish half the story to get people to upset and buy or subscribe to the online version of the paper. A few years ago the story published upset the readership so much it had a fellow dismissed from his job as a conservation officer(?).... If they had published the whole story it would have been a "No Brainer" he was the best man for the job....

    I go as far to describe the news here as a 100% money making competition business. Treat it like a commercial. It is not a public service. They have no obligation to tell the whole truth. "Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story" fits Australian news perfectly!!!

    Can someone please explain to me the weird UK obsession with Kerry Katona? I just don't get it - she isn't even particularly hot.

    Re: The media really is a major problem in western society

    To be a 'governor' or 'president' really means chief of doing as you're told and forcing everyone under you to do the same.

    The meeja is simply one of the major tools of the cabal in programming us and engineering society towards their long-term goals.

    So yes, it's a problem.

    This is such a great post. I used to be quite ignorant about the lives of animals myself because of the societal normalization of slaughtering innocent life to feed humanity. It's fundamental to the bible to eat meat, as animals are considered a god-given food source. Wake up and be your own god and minimize your economical impact to spare their lives. We should be feeding them vegetarian food in the wild not slaying them, it's barbaric. Surely it's the next step of human progression to acknowledge the animal holocaust that this world is and become vegetarians (bring on the lab-grown meat!!!). This world is a fucking horifying place for an innocent child to endure, to be brainwashed by the media to simply consume mindlessly until you die and not respect innocent life as precious. (by innocent, I mean one that does not take the life of the innocent. It's kinda recursive hehehe :P).

    I think she must some kinda single-mumma "role model". Are you aware that she's a former pop star of a fairly popular band, the other members of which are gorgeous. I don't listen to pop, lol, so I can't judge her on her musical merits.

    You must not live smothered in nature, all it takes to burn down your house is one tree-rat chewing on your wiring, including your autos, not to mention the nasty nests full of urine, mites, and disease.

    I'm at war with animals because I'm surrounded by them, and if unabated, endangered by them! Killing them brings joy and warmth to my soul! And I don't fuck around, it's headshots, heart shots, or no shots at all!

    I like my pestering asshole animals only one way, DEAD!

    I can't say that I'm pestered by animals. Sure they maybe be accidental pests, but are material things really worth more than an innocent life that means you and no other living thing harm? Sure the cost of being altruistic is high, but in my heart is a deep satisfaction that I'm good soul. I think your disregard for life is a symptom of your discontent with your own life. I could be wrong and maybe you just like mindlessly killing stuff. Either way, we differ enormously here lol

    You are Patrick Bateman.
