PREDICTING THE FUTURE III
if you have been reading this post , please continue reading it over, as I am still adding to it.
All media is entertainment, and all entertainment is education. So it does not have to be a "Housewives of New Jersey" or Rush Limbaugh, there is no difference, both are designed to be educational and both will corrupt your mind , equally. Both will make you dumber than you already are, that is if you are not given to critical thinking, something sorely lacking in the United States, and the world.
As the education standards have declined, even at the university levels, and questioning the conventional wisdom is a taboo among the learned, similar minded, "intellectuals" herd themselves in to think tanks that only promote one side of the reality, theirs, thus destroying anyone's ability to think openly. Politics and economic theories have become entrenched religions with no middle ground.
The politicians have exploited this divide for years, with 50.5, 49.5 elections, the nation has been perfectly divided , and the politicins have used this division for political and monetary gains.
LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE
