Why I Don't Actively Consume The News
- The news consists of “stories.” The best definition of “story” I’ve ever come across was from a novelist who defined it as “a record of how a character reacts to danger”. That means that stories always pay attention to that sliver of reality that is dangerous, never to reality in its entirety.
- I have more than enough anxiety-inducing negativity within. There’s no need to add more from without.
