Doom and Gloom? Thanks Media for warping our perspective on the world. Meh.

You’ll be dead someday. I’ll be dead someday. That’s enough doom and gloom. Things appear bad because… media.

Same things get repeated over and over again, causing us to believe things are happening over and over again. The same event gets replayed. Feels *as if* it’s still happening. But it’s not. Single event. Happened once. Over.

But humans like to see patterns everywhere. We connect stars together to form stories. We do the same with singular events.

It’s not that we’re brainwashed per se… but our perspectives are often colored by what we allow ourselves to be exposed to… and rallying for a cause with a sense of righteous indignation is a very powerful emotional force.
