Do we really need our consciousness raised any more?
Advertisements [?]
I have read and otherwise learned of many--too many, maybe--stories about what is wrong with the US, the world and the planet.

I have myself posted many such stories.

I have read or otherwise heard of zero that tells me what, realistically, I can do about any of these problems.

Sign an online petition? Don't make me laugh. Call my Senator? Don't make me laugh. Call the White House? Don't make me split my sides.

If I can't do anything, maybe time spent keeping up with the "news" is counter-productive? If all I can do with the info is get more aggravated about it, how much of my time should I rationally devote to it?
