"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Essay & Comparisons | Television Content & Nutrition

Nutritious Or Toxic?

What enters the senses will either help or harm. It will be nutritious or toxic. If we cannot clearly identify the nutrition content of television content, it is more than likely toxic.

At a minimum, we should always do a quick benefit/detriment analysis. We should be able to identify things we are learning/confirming and whether or not those things are helpful or harmful. We must be careful not to fall into the trap of thinking there is anything innocent or objective on television. All content has intent.

We must also be careful if we use television as an escape, to unwind, as entertainment or as a time filler. There are no time fillers that are not also mind fillers. Likewise, there is no such thing as television content where thinking is not involved. We are always thinking, even when sleep. If we are not aware of this, then we are also not aware of the effects of television programming on our subconscious thoughts, waking minds and sleeping minds.

The Power Of Television

As with all technology, its use determines its usefulness. Television could be used to enhance life but due to the preponderance of toxic content it contains, it limits life.

In other words, television is a powerful tool. It is so powerful it is being used to get us to pay a lot of money for the device and then a lot of resources for other things. It also gets us to exchange value for the privilege of certain programming.

Many of us are paying for the weapon, the ammunition and repeatedly aiming it ourselves. We are committing mentacide and spiritcide in the name of something supposedly beneficial, helpful, informative, truthful; therefore supposedly nutritious.
