Overthinking Everything with Josh Brandon

Dec 13 2022 • 1 hr 2 mins

Josh Brandon overthinks the impact infotainment media has on influencing our personalities and ideals. In Part 2 of the "For Entertainment Purposes Only" series, examining a critical period in America's ethical decline - the 1990's, we're deconstructing the events that led to the blurring of the lines between information and entertainment and how that groomed two or more generations to not know any better and not care as much - about anything except cultism. #television #brainwashing #cultism In this video I talk about the devolution of journalism to opinion blogging and how that set the stage for the critical period that brought us some of the best and worst pop culture has to offer - and how that pop culture impacted our overall culture and led us to where we are today. OVERTHINKING EVERYTHING SERIES DESCRIPTION Overthinking Everything is essentially about exploring the Origin of the Idea. Why do we think the things we think and believe the things we believe? Using the Social Studies – History, Geography, Civics, and Economics. These are the basic foundations of Political Science. In OE, it’s Psychology, Philosophy, Sociology and Anthropology. It’s art & literature, science and religion, and current events and conspiracy theories. Exploring our opinions and ideas through these lenses may seem daunting, but it's not as difficult to understand, once we unplug, detach, and step back from the issue. But it's a journey of discovery we'll go on together, Overthinking Everything! In this first season, Deconstructing A Culture of Cultism, I'm exploring not only the Origin of Idea, but attempting to explain how easily we are led down the path to cultism. I'd like this series to be an exercise in perspective and training the brain to think critically. CHANNEL DESCRIPTION Hi! Welcome to Josh Brandon Media! Thank you SO much for checking out my work!
