"Turn off the TV!" counsels the Dalai Lama to his American audiences, with a wide grin.
He knows how HYPNOTIZED and addicted tens of millions of us have become to the "boob tube".
Most of American TV is part of a mass experiment in COLLECTIVE CRETINIZATION, probably unparalleled in human history.
The first revolutionary act that an American citizen can commit is to cancel cable.
In addition to FREEING HIM PERSONALLY from the powerful Propaganda Machine of the 1%, it constitutes a form of PROTEST of the 99% against the same 1%, that will definitelyhurt the latter's bottom line.
Let's teach people to find their news - the REAL news - on the Internet and start a nation-wide CANCEL CABLE CAMPAIGN!
