During last week's power outage (3 days without electricity, 4 days without web) I relearned and refocused a broad decision I'd made a long time ago.
I always keep propane equipment and a battery-powered radio ready for outages. The radio is mainly for noise while sleeping. At the start of the outage I tried the "local" "news-talk" station and immediately turned it off. YAARGH! A huge blast of toxic poison!
I tried Tom Read's Christian station,
and stayed there for relatively harmless noise, including even some OTR at night.
But some of the Christian talkers were also taking part in the poisonfest from the "other" "side". While the conventional networks were blasting FUCKTRUMP FUCKTRUMP FUCKTRUMP at 160 dB, the evangelicals were stoutly defending Trump. Why? Israel. In their minds the ONLY NATION IN THE WORLD IS ISRAEL. When they talk about patriotism, they mean loyalty to ISRAEL. They were either too stupid to catch onto the long-standing fraud perpetrated by Lee Atwater, or they're paid participants. Trump is NOT stupid. He played this game hard,
and received the reward.
REMEMBER!!!!! TRUMP IS ROY COHN'S PROTEGE!!!

I've never been OCD about physical germs. I understand immunity.
Since 2010 I've become increasingly OCD about mental
inputs. After throwing out the TV in 2010, I was able to start THINKING again. Since then I've gradually decreased other inputs. About six months ago, specifically triggered by the BLM riots, I turned off the AM radio and left it off. I've also pulled away from several "alt" websites like RT and ZeroHedge, which are clearly paid participants.
Until the power outage, I was deriving a dim distorted echo of media concerns from chance mentions in various places such as the subject lines of spam emails. Like a vaccine, those previews kept the mental immunity fresh without overwhelming it. I could tell, for instance, that Congress was farting about an absurdly futile "impeachment", but I didn't have to receive and reject the emotional impact of the grotesquely hyperidiotic "discussions".
So the outage reinforced my resolve to avoid thinking about such matters and avoid discussing them here as much as possible.
Don't Be There.
When you participate in protests "for" "the" "correct" "side", you're strengthening the side you don't like. When you argue details of a currently hot topic, you're helping Deepstate to use the topic for tyranny. There are no "correct" "sides", there are only toxic topics.
As long as Side B is visible and annoying, the demons of Side A will kill Side B. When demons can't see Side B, they get bored and find other outlets. Often the other outlets are insufficiently orthodox members of Side A. Witch hunts end when they burn the initial igniters. Revolutions end when they guillotine or purge the Trotskyites or Deviationists. You can't count on this self-consumption, but it's more likely when Side B remains quiet.
