    Hurricanes, Wars, racism, Violence. And every good story on the news is simply there as a Token relief.

    I mean look, According to the news, Everything sucks and is deadly and we should all be snuggled deep in our improvised bomb shelters eating non-perishable styrofoam pellets.

    And nothing ever changes. It's like every day is a repeat of the last. What will tomorrows news be like? Well just go to youtube. type news into the search bar and start watching. It's all the same,

    it never changes :(

    Yes! This is the way I feel about Facebook -- nothing but flaming political posts! I thought it would diminish after the election but it has only become much worse. :eek:

    I mean, If I stop watching the news, I become uninformed, Yet if I do watch the new, I can never be happy because of all the sadness and depression :(

    It's true. And people have the right to feel however they want politically. That's what freedom is. but don't people realize things are no better or worse than they ever were? It's just all the same :(

    I'm not a fan of Donald Trump but I also believe the whole PC social justice warrior thing has gone way too far. I try to remain positive and neutral but I have friends on FB who've sent me invitations to like certain political pages. Just by ignoring their requests I've offended them. No one is allowed in the middle these days! It depresses me that people can't just move on from the toxic 2016 pres election.

    I gave up on politics. The thing with me is, The violence the parties have for each other, Now people are getting attacked at their homes because of their political alignment, MY question is, Does freedom Truly exist in a political atmosphere where opposing opinion is met with violence? not for me thanks. I have given up on politics entirely, There is no way to win at the game of politics.

    A lot of people bitch about something going wrong, but how many and how often praise things for simply not going wrong?

    Well, to be honest, I'd like to see the truth on the news. statistically, Violence and murder have never been lower than they are in modern times, There is even in the wake of the war, Less killing famine and disease than there has ever been in human history, Believe it or not, this is statistical fact. But you don't see that on the news. The news boosts its views by proclaiming doom and gloom and the side effect is, This Darkness they spread is only a fraction of the reality we live in, It's affecting people, it's depressing. And it does not paint an accurate portrayal of literal reality. Imho :/

    I see. SP you believe the world is a far better place than it is portrayed to be. You fear that the gloomy sensationalism of the news media is causing the world to be a darker place. Is that right? Is it a better place or a darker place? If the gloom is only a tiny fraction of our reality then why let shadows darken your world? Turn off the news or turn to those stories, no matter how hidden they are, which celebrate the world we live in. If you feel concern for others that they are being downtrodden by being constantly bombarded by everything wrong in this world then share with them everything right. Find the stories that inspire, that give hope, that bring smiles...and share the hell out of them. That's all you can do and that's enough. If you're feeling like nothing changes and nothing makes a difference then I'm gonna do what I'm telling you to do...I'm going to share an inspiring little story...instead of a gloomy one...and see if it makes a difference with you.

    You're welcome but the thanks is mutual. I think that it is people like yourself...people who have hope...that makes the world a brighter place. Without people like yourself...the rest of us gloomy brooding folks...would be lost in the darkness. :)

    Hence, the very reason I am no longer on Facebook. I shut mine down over a month ago.
    If it wasn't the political crap it was invasive and unwelcomed advertising. Too much clutter!
