an essay in attitudes
Not if "Anchorman" is on.
Do you know that in Sweden you need to pay a certain tv tax, called tv-license. And the thing is that if you tell the authorities that you don't have a tv, they don't believe you. They actually have people coming to your door and ask you why you don't pay. You have to have a tv, watch their public service-lies and pay tax for it! They have called me while I've been living in Tallinn too ;) But like in so many of these cases their power is an illusion. Call the bluff, I say.
LG ~ Indeed..."What cologne you gonna go with? London Gentleman, or wait. No, no, no. Hold on. Blackbeard's Delight." LSS ~ There is tv licensing in Britain, too. Taxpayers actually end up paying for the dangerous nonsense that poisons their mind, home, family, and society. Diabolical.
Years ago when I saw the Monty Python sketch depicting a multitude of inspectors besieging a middle class English home, I thought it was merely absurdist humor along the lines of the dead parrot sketch. Now I know it is merely a depiction of our absurd reality.As for television itself - I dream of a day when there are television burnings. It's done boatloads more harm than the print media has.
I work in TV and although it pays the bills it is rubbish.
My TV wasn't killed... it was sent to live with a nice family upstate in 2000 where it is much happier.
