Appointed Pointlessness

"The freedom of the press throughout the world where the capitalists rule, is the freedom to buy up papers, the freedom to buy writers, to buy and manufacture public opinion in the interests of the capitalists." -Lenin

At this time I'd like to confess that I view on nearly a daily basis. I also read US Weekly (when getting my nails done) and don't really enjoy it. Why do I do this? Boredom? As a means of comparing my life to the lives of others? To see if my ideals still have a place in a society that is seemingly falling apart? I imagine other bright minds are being dulled on a daily basis. Starting next Monday, (just kidding), starting today, I am not going to pay attention to that pointlessness.
