I needed them to keep me at a saner degree of insanity. Isn't that the truth with most teenage idiots? Now illusions are the last thing I need or want, and I wish they would all go away to give me nothing but TRUTH. BARE, NAKED, UNADULTERATED, UNGMO'ED, ORGANIC TRUTH WITH NO ARTIFICIAL ADDITIVES!
Hence I don't go to mainstream media, though you do have to sort through the alternative with all the controlled opposition out thar.
