The media really cracks me up. Lets take the most natural occurance and turn it into a Doomsday thriller. Apparently a star exploded (or imploded) yesterday and the headlines read ‘Monsterous Explosion!!!’ Like it has anything to do with us.
I am not really complaining, really just shaking my head and giggling. We are rediculous.
On a more serious note though, there is some connection between headlines like that one and the continuous use of fear to manipulate and control the population. It is no accident that headlines read like an action movie sound reel. “Crash” “Bang” “Monsterous Explosion!” “Gun Shot.” You get the idea.
