What do you think life would be like without television?

What do you think life would be like without television, celebrity, “fame”, commercials, marketing, illusions, etc.
If these things were eliminated, how would society be affected? So much of television is a pure distraction from yourself. If you were not distracted, you would be amazed at the difference in your consciousness. So many people don’t realize they are zombies; with television being the culprit.
The culprit to your insecurities (marketing), to your feelings of inadequacy (displaying only one type of beauty), to the perpetuation of stereotypes that affect people in very real ways (socially, employment, etc.)
People need to evolve, and in order to do that the television needs to be turned OFF.
So, what do YOU think life would be like without television?


  1. I only very rarely watch the Evil Propaganda Machine. My house is full of ’em because there’s a lot of us living here, but I’m more likely to read a book. I sometimes will have History Channel or Science Channel on in the background while I’m reading, but unless something really catches my attention (is something interesting I know nothing or little about) I’m not really paying attention to it.
    My life would be unaffected, in other words. Well, it would be a little more quiet, but that’s about it.

  2. I went almost 2 years without owning a television, and I didn’t miss it at all. Actually, I preferred it. I still do not have cable and use my t.v. basically for movies and video games. Honestly, I’m happy without the constant stream of junk coming in. However, like another user said, the internet can be just as bad, if not worse.

  3. Honestly I think life would be a lot better.
    Television is a distraction from what we as people are here for.
    Television creates nothing but superficial thinking.
    which can only brainwash people,and teach people how to prejudge one another.

  4. I think there would be a lot less fat people. I also believe the quality of athletes will start to show a significant decline in a few years, because kids now-a-days sit in front of the t.v. playing video games. We didn’t have video games when I was a kid, we played OUTSIDE from sun-up till sundown…
