Why Today Was Better Than Yesterday

Yesterday, we all still lived in a world where there were new episodes of the Oprah Winfrey Show.

Today marked the first day in 25 years in which one of these freshly-spawned abominations darkened our planet.

Think of it. For the last quarter century, Oprah's cathode-spread infection has assaulted some of the most basic goods of the human race. Logic, reason, femininity, masculinity, faith, etc. all found themselves the target of her ego. Not to mention decent literature. What sparked her war on good books, we'll never know.

I submit that Oprah's influence on modern society was a catastrophe by lending credence to the most base mythologies that currently influence people. The steady diet of faux victimhood, aggrandizement of elites, emotionalism, New Age tripe, and even blasphemy served as a good argument against freedom of speech and expression. This is the same woman who gave us the popularity of The Secret, Toni Morrison, Dr. Phil, Eckhart Tolle, and Suze Orman. In what universe should we have any appreciation for those contributions?

This post will probably reap a great bit of criticism for this site, probably in the form of citations to Oprah's numerous charitable acts. Talk to an Oprah-addict. Then multiply their decayed mind by millions. Then try to figure out how much influence those individuals have on society as a whole. I appreciate her assistance to the poor and so forth. She can keep doing that now. The damage she has done to people's souls, though, makes me very happy that she has decided to move on.

It's over?! Thank God! We get her show even in Portugal. Let's hope they don't pass re-runs.
