It was a worldwide transition that governments got involved in/

orchestrated. I have noticed a marked decline in intelligent discussion about anything since then and still think there was something much more sinister about the whole thing. Did the governments of the world care when I switched from cassettes to cds? Nope. VCR to DVD? Nope. Dial-up to cable? Nope.
But for some odd reason, the governments of the world were intimately involved in people's switch from regular tv to digital tv, why?
I have never owned a digital or flat screen tv and don't plan on ever getting one. My old tv is probably 20 feet under the county landfill by now.
I get downvoted for saying tv is bad and watching it causes problems, but watching tv is bad and it causes problems. Next time you (not you, chris, the general "you")turn on the tv, thank your government for assuring your picture quality is good and that you are getting the right programming.
