Oh I just read that on the news like two minutes ago. Who cares, really?

I personally find it very sad how people are so occupied with the lives of other people, and have something to say about everything. It's tiring. Just look at yourselves, no one is perfect. I'm not saying I feel sorry for them, because I don't, and frankly I couldn't care less about 1D, but I just hate how people are so celebrity obsessed. What's so interesting about a few lads smoking joints, or Gerard Butler buying a new couch or something like that? Are people generally interested in shit like that? Are their lives really that empty?

Its funny how people are about that. The media caters to that sort of obsession (People Magazine, for example) because for some weird reason it sells. So you have articles discussing Gerard Butler's new couch, and then on the other hand you have the sort of media thats trying to keep people angry, especially in politics. No one will even consider listening to anyone else's opinions. Case in point- I started reading these conservative websites and stuff, where people rant against gay marriage and claim that global warming is a hoax. I don't agree with any of the views they expressed, but I wanted to know, from an objective standpoint, where the die hard republicans were coming from (I know your in the Netherlands, so if your not up to speed on American politics bear with me) 

And after a few weeks of this I did start to understand some of their points. Not saying I agreed, but I had educated myself. 

So then the other day I was at a party, and some rather fierce democrats started to get worked up about how any blame for any issue could be pinned on the republicans. They didn't word it quite like that, but that was their general point. I chimed in by telling them what I had learned from the conservative media, and they were furious with me. In their opinion, my interest in the "enemies'" views was unacceptable. 

Everyone buys into the kind of news that will make them angry, because its easier to be angry than calm and reasonable, and the result is its actually hard to find sources that aren't trying to infuriate you. 

Anyway, just thought I'd vent a little about that.
