Watching TV As An Act of Love

programming on TV is mainstream, so if you are exposing yourself to that all the time, your views will tend to become fairly mainstream, i think. not that you have to start believing what you see on TV but it’s a bit hard to maintain radical beliefs of any sort if constantly being influenced by TV. for example, it might be hard to maintain anarchist views if constantly watching commercials and programming that undermines your beliefs. The same could be said for a fundamentalist Christian who wants to maintain her anti-gay worldview. but maybe someone watching only Christian TV wouldn’t have the same problem.
