Turn It Off to Turn It Up

It #1 = The TV It #2 = Life I was listening to a philosopher philosophising recently, and he talked about how people rush out of work, and rush home through the traffic and rush into the house, only to turn on the television and sit in front of the flickering blue light all night […]
