Watching televisions having my vision become defined

from Dom McLennon – MAAD World Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In the world we live in today, the media are the ones who’re control of how we perceive the world and current events; thus they are controlling our vision. Especially the national television stations have full control of what they choose to let the people see, and because of that, they can actually indirectly define our convictions if we do not view them critically. In fact, television can even affect us even more directly, for example through product placement.

Dom grew up watching loads of television, which as stated above ended up defining how his perception of the world is.


Immortal Technique said it well on his song The 4th Branch, with these lines about the media:

It’s like MK-ULTRA, controllin' your brain
Suggestive thinking, causing your perspective to change


This line may serve as a wake-up-call for everybody who closely follows the news stations. Maybe you should consider being more critical about what you hear on the news, and do some follow-up research on the subject before forming an opinion. Don’t be a sheep!
