The Urban Prepper:
Stop the Control…TURN THE BOX OFF!
I have a challenge for you, your family and friends…Stop Watching TV for a week.
Are you curious why people are in a “Zombie State” of numbness and lethargic when they should be mad as hell about the state of this country…ever heard of “Flicker Rates” or “Subliminal Messages”? I dare you and your family…just do it for a week…OK make an exception for College Football but turn the box off immediately afterwards. Put your spare time towards reading (stay away from the weekly propaganda like Time or Newsweek) grab a good book or cruise the web.
The first 2-days you’ll find yourself craving the Tube, the 3rd or 4th day you’ll be more interested in that book and by the 5th-6th day you’ll find your entire attitude and overall awareness have increased…suddenly you’ll find you’re a bit sharper and awake. You should notice a huge attitude improvement after 7 days…why you ask? You’ve just weaned your mind from an addictive controlling drug…TV.
After your TV re-hab you’ll notice the news is truly controlled and mostly reporting “fluff” pieces and pro-government prepared Intel…no matter what network you choose. You’ll see how you’re slammed with Pharma ads. Your daughters aren’t “hip” unless they’re dressed like tramps and in size “zero” outfits. Practically every show has some reference to and the promotion of sex…even SNL dropped the “F” bomb this past weekend for ratings. Don’t even go to the Cartoon Network…all kinds of innuendos and symbolism for the kiddies.
We came upon hard times, a factory closure a few months ago and had to scale down…we gave up the luxury items which included cable and rediscovered our local library and neighbour book exchange. We went (2) weeks without TV and noticed a change in our attitudes and alertness. We are more active and alert and now biking daily 10-20 miles or walking 2-5 miles. You might say we went through an awakening. Like previous smokers we really see the TV effects on others and are trying to awaken those close to us…so far… (2) Relatives have changed their viewing habits and are awakening too!
POI-I was talking to my local grocer manager (also a fellow Prepper) and he said more people are stocking in quantity, buying in cases and lot sizes. He noticed in the past (3) weeks Powdered Eggs and Milk have been flying off the shelf. In addition he mentioned warehouse inventories are “considerably less” than last year and they have been moving store inventories to “make it look as if we have more than shown”.
