A very small minority of reality shows pique my interest because of their big idea, but most of them make me seriously consider that America is going insane or dumbed down by the Corporate Party media.
Beauty and the Geek was one that made me curious. It got old fast, though.
My wife had me check out My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance. An interesting study in human behavior.
I prefer smart drama, thought-provoking science fiction, delightfully creative fantasy, and action films that make you think. I like educational videos and documentaries that reveal things of life and the universe.
I have found, though, living 5 years outside of the States, that the Corporate Party media is heavily biased. I had heard this, before, but hadn't believed it. Now, it's as plain as day. Americans are being hypnotized by experts while their precious country is being dismantled. The Constitution of the United States is already halfway gone.
YouTube has saved me. True, there's a lot of garbage on YouTube, but some is quite enlightening or at least worthy of further investigation.
These 2 short videos, for instance, show how America's voting process has been eliminated, and both halves of the Corporate Party convention no longer adhere to Roberts Rules of Order:
I have learned how the Power Elite, like the Rockefellers, are threatening our very existence.
And how 9/11 was an inside job (based on science and logic). One YouTube video led me to the website of scientists, engineers and architects who have studied the facts of 9/11 and found the Bush "conspiracy theory" sorely lacking.
And to end on a note of levity, here's 5 minutes of 9/11 humor:
I love the stuff that makes you think.
And here's one I created on scientific evidence in support of Atlantis. Yes, the modern equivalent of "blasphemy" isn't so evil or wrong, after all.
