Media and Us: Pause, Think, then Consume…then Think Again


When in mandir or really in any religious setting someone talks to us about being more aware and restrictive with our media consumption or to at the very consider the true impacts of the types and amounts of media we consume, we almost immediately categorize the whole thing as a lecture from a conservative, anti-society, anti-modern mind frame. But interestingly we will give the same argument due consideration when it comes from other, maybe more “hip” sources. I found myself doing this recently as I read this phenomenal article, which is even furthered with some interesting comments: http://ma.tt/2012/05/culture-of-distraction/
