My subscription has run out and I'm not going to re-up. I've always been more than a little ambivalent about being here, anyway, but now I'm pretty sure my money would be better spent elsewhere.

Ha ha, this New Age site is trippin' balls!

Are the beliefs you hold innate to you, based on your own experience and judgment, or acquired from others without choice or examination on your part? You have the right to believe whatever you like, but is what you believe truly right for you, or is it someone else's idea of what you ought to...

I found this quotation on the Best American Poetry blog. I always hated "The New Yorker" and this helps me grasp why. But it could be applied to LOTS of media, eh?

lol I like that, very true.

You are right, that could be applied to a whole lot of things you read in the media. I used to like The New Yorker, and subscribed for many years, but several years ago it started to annoy me. I don't say that it changed, but I did. I believe that to some extent I was using it as a sort of guide to how an educated, monied 'sophisticate' would see the world. An aspirational read, maybe. That is not the whole story, and they do have good articles and at least I don't grouse about the quality of the prose as I am wont to do sometimes. But the relentless focus on the rich, the Ivy-Leagued, made me finally realize that this magazine was not for me. I no longer had any desire to cultivate the attitudes of that set, because I was not and am not one of them, nor do I really wish to be, and reading a magazine ain't gonna do the trick even if I did want to become one of them.

But its not just them. Most people, most of the time, shape their views primarily via attitudes, not examination.

Time to stop writing. My comment is twice as long as your post, which exceeds the legal limit.
