Perception is an interesting thing.
When I was younger, if I would have heard a news station say “The Whitest Kids U’ Know” is a weird show, I would have believed it, and it would have influenced my perception of that show as I watched it.
Now, I’m older, and I don’t listen to that stuff anymore, so I like that show.
Still yet, there are many people that would say the show is too weird to be popular. When it becomes popular, people say “Well the people that like it are just weird.”
However, I like it, so that’s all that I care about.
Likewise, there are shows that I hate, that I think are weird, and I think that fans of these shows are dumb. Yet, they watch it anyway.
It’s weird how perception works.
The news uses perception to their manipulative advantage, so I don’t watch it at all so that I can actually learn some facts about the world.
It’s called reading lol and I don’t mean newspapers and magazines.
I mean books that have stood the test of time.
They’ll teach you more about life and current events more so than any current analysis of any current event could ever teach you.
