    Hollywood, media, radio and television bombards us with non-stop negative programming of emotionally charged visuals of CONFLICT, detailing crime, violence, murder-mayhem and chaos, corruption, calamities, political turmoil, natural disasters, global unrest,and crises only to be followed by more crises reporting..over and over and over...

    Which keeps the majority in a state of fear, apprehension, anxiety,
    anger, hatred, shame, guilt and mistrust.

    #Stay disengaged and refuse to give your mind and emotions to their
    incessant drama and BS.
  2. Your post reminds me of a recent, very good, deep, documentary I watched, called: Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds (2012)....all traders, and people, should watch that many, many, times until it truly registers in you.

    I haven't made a screenshot, yet, there was a point in time when 90% of the new threads here on ET were about covi.

    Maybe there is no correlation between intelligence and fear. Who knows.

  4. And you see how those threads stopped when the media stopped, right? Yet, those same retards tried to argue with me when I told them that the ONLY reason they were in fear of "covid" and care so much about it is because the TV told them to.

    I didn't the media to make Covid real. I know two people personally that would up on ventilators.

    Ignorance often times is worse than fear.

    most news is biased.
    also, professional writers are slow in writing.

    always read the news with a pinch of salt.
    Then our trading minds will not be contaminated by biased inaccurate negative or positive news.

    To Be honest, I do not prefer to watch or read news except for news related to finance.
