Is it unhealthy to be "too informed" ?
Advertisements [?]
I've thought about this as I see more and more people here at DU turn angry when some new revelation is put forth. And then another revelation...and then another. We become even more angry as the media seems to cover up the facts. The hypocrisy of our leaders becomes unbearable. Eventually, it seems to turn us toward hate. We hate what we see happening to our country. We hate the ignorance of so many of our citizens. We hate the leaders. We hate our press. Can this be healthy? Is it that we only assume ourselves to be more "informed". If these feelings are with so many DUers, what should we do about it? Take a vacation? Withdraw from the process? Move off the grid?
