lovelies

I think that I'm going to try taking a break from reading news papers and magazines. I've got the headlines from our public broadcasting channel on RSS-feed, so I'll know as much as one needs to know of current events, but beyond that, I'm fasting. Because I doubt that the constant bombardment of violence, paranoia, bigotry and misogyny are doing my self-image or view of the world any wonders.

I want to see how it will affect a person to go without the pornographic crime stories, images of surgically and digitally altered people, thinly-veiled advertisements and exploitation of our fellow men for a while. And the least I can do is not fund this culture that I rather do find objectionable.
