About Me

I'm in my 50's. I served 6 years in the Air Force. I've worked in the following fields: Military; Civilian Meteorologist; Dial-Up Internet Service Provider; Equipment Rental; Information Services; Currently working as an electrician. Married for just over 30 years. Was a registered Republican for the first election I was involved in and voted for Reagan. I changed my affiliation afterward and have voted Democrat ever since. I am a Bernie Sanders supporter. Any person that promotes a platform that supports the greatest portion of the American people is a person that I can support. Why would anyone have a problem with that?

Mass Hysteria?

I just finished watching a documentary on Amazon called "American Experience: War of the Worlds".

Of course I knew the story about the radio broadcast that Orson Wells did in the 30's and the hysteria that it caused, but this documentary really brings to light the power that the media has over people.

I believe that we are experiencing mass hysteria on a very large scale across the globe and the media is the culprit. They pander to their audience bringing them exactly what they need to get a fix. Fear, hatred, bigotry, etc... It's coming in the form of cable "news", AM hate radio talk shows, church sermons, and social media.

There are several points made about the audience who listened to the radio broadcast in this documentary. It's really worth a look if you have about an hour.
