    The Media is more influential to what you think, fear and feel than you will ever fully understand.

    [​IMG]The media is capable of molding and changing minds and perspectives on personal and social matters like family, religion, life in general, education, and etc. Wrather than people just taking in information and making their own conclusion on it they expect the media to make up THEIR minds and make the conclusions for THEM. Nowadays, people are not capable of changing their own minds no matter how much evidence is against them because of media being to biased towards certains opinions and perspectives.

    Don't worry, the Reptilians will kill the bears with their telepathy and their ray guns. But then, who will kill the Reptilians? I know who:

    The bulk of the UK population trust the TV more than their own Mother.

    The internet is probably the most influential outlet.

    It influences people's buying decisions unlike anything else.

    Comics,clothes,shoes,tech gear,furniture,dvds,cds,music,etc.
