I love TV. Love, love, love it. But in the early two thousands I disconnected it and didn’t have any service until the War on Terror scare-mongering ended. (It was before the social media era, so all the propaganda was on TV). I didn’t allow all those ridiculous Red Alerts that would crop up for no observable reason to occupy my brain.
I’m doing the same now. The “long COVID” and the attendant coups and insurrections aren’t going to reach me.
I highly recommend everybody do the same. We are feeding those bastards with our fear and anxiety.
