We should never unestimate the myriad of ways that we are exposed to social programming, mass hypnosis, and the generational dumbing down of the populous. Television is the obvious brainwashing tool, but so is any media you can think of: movies, music, facebook, cellphones, etc. Then we're exposed to emfs, food toxins, aerial spraying, fluoride... we're being bombarded from every angle and it's affecting our brains. You'd think that any parent or anyone who really cares about future generations on our precious planet would be up in arms, yet that's not what we see happening.
Would you be willing to give up your cellphone to save the annihilation of birds, bees, and other life forms on Earth? Considering that we got along just fine before cellphones gained widespread use in the late 1990s, maybe it's not such a tough choice. There is also evidence suggesting brain tumors may result from long-term contact between the user's head and receiver, especially in children. http://www.rense.com/general63/FACTS.HTM (although it is officially denied by the US Government).
