Switch It Off

Updated: Dec 15, 2020



Why does the media even matter?


100 years ago, let alone thousands of years, we didn’t have TVs or computers, heck we barely had phones or radios.


But now we’re literally consumed by it.


Like it actually even matters.


Great works of literature are translated into sound bites


Our attention spans are shorter


We’re more impatient


We’re always longing for more, more, more.


It’s almost as if life is too good


The media is akin to the jester in the kings court -


Are you not entertained?


Try switching it off, just try, for a little while at least.


Don’t watch the news or scan the head lines
