Late Night Thoughts and One of My Favorite Rush Songs

I've been thinking alot about the sensationalism in the media meat market. Why is it that people don't bother to question what they see and hear? Why do they insist on participating in one witch hunt after another because, well, the mainstream media says so? What's wrong with stepping back and saying "wait, there may be more to this than what we are being told"? Why do people denounce those who actually try to get to the root of problems while accepting the words of a media that tends to embellish more than they fact check and as a result, pit people against eachother? What has Marilyn Manson ever done to you? If you don't like his music, you're likely not going to listen to it so why are you letting it affect your life? Do you even know what the music is about? Or are you just going on sensationalism and media meat market witch hunts? Isn't it time we stopped the madness? Isn't it time we stopped the witch hunts? Really, what is it accomplishing?
