Media

The  media is a pain. It hardly matters whether its coming from the right or the left (terms that mean less and less) because either way its outlook is so relentlessly materialistic that it misses most of what's going on.

It thinks mainstream politics matters. It thinks the economy is the be all and end all. It respects our institutions. It cannot imagine change that goes beyond the acquisition of better and zippier toys. It thinks Darwin and Freud have adequately described the world.  It's interest in spirituality is limited to the ignorant things that  ignorant men in dog collars have been saying.
