Night after night, we sit for long hours in dark rooms. Identical images flow into our brains, McDonaldizing our perspectives, knowledge, tastes, desires.
We spend more hours watching nature shows than experiencing the real thing; more time laughing at TV jokes than making jokes ourselves; more time experiencing TV sports than actually picking a ball in our hands.
Halal and haram are lost when eyes are mesmerized, fixed on that 19" piece of furniture.
Our brains are targeted at the rate of 3,000 marketing messages per day -- twelve billion display ads, three million radio ads and over 300,000 TV commercials toxins are dumped on us. Our attention spans are diminishing, our imaginations giving out, we are unable to remember the past.
While competing for the best of this world, we once in a while recall about the everlasting life. But that moment doesn't last very long. It is washed away pretty fast as we willingly set down for another session with the thing.
And children. Those innocent souls, born Muslim, are being given away to the 19" baby sitter to turn them into a lost people.

Comment: I refuse to watch any television at all, and many others are joining me. The fact is that the motion imagery has a sedative effect on the viewers, half-hypnotizing them and leaving them suggestible to the barrage of opinions of the Los Angeles-loyal show makers. In 2006 I detected that Los Angeles has used television and the movies to gain power over the entire world. Since capturing the 'hearts and minds' of the American people during WWII, L.A. has firmed up it's control and dispenses it's Satanic will everywhere in the world today. Now we notice Lybia, Egypt, Syria, and Yemen are being captured by Hollywood. The people of those countries will soon be duped by their television shows into obeying the will of Los Angeles, California, USA!

Comment: It's good but the computer is a much worse detractor. Everyone should control how much time they spend at it even if that's their work.
