Why programming?

Shows in a lineup are referred to as "programming".

Brainwashing people to behave a certain way is also called "programming"

A 'program' on a popular streaming service has been pointed to as having an effect on teens.

This show, "13 reasons why" has been looked at because teen suicides spiked after the airing of the show.

 This concerns hardly anyone but maybe the reporters and this blogger. I don't like to hear of anyone causing harm because I think they're all me. Everyone is me, and everyone is also not me. This is what keeps me holding compassion on this island of selfishness.

 What can help?

 Maybe some homegrown 'programming' that focuses on compassion and fuzzy human interest stories. Something like Black Mirror, but without the horror angle. Sci-Fi fuzziness might take off.

 If it saves one life, it's worth it.
