A few days ago, I traveled by train out of town in the morning. The train was very crowded. All the seats were taken, and a lot of passengers, including me, were standing.
When I looked around, I noticed a strange sight. Almost everyone on the train was reading a newspaper, the passengers who were sitting, as well as the passengers who were standing. Everyone was engrossed in reading the newspaper, nobody looking around, or through the windows,
It seemed as if all the people were unconnected to the surrounding world. It looked as if everyone was living in another world, unaware of what was happening around them.
Let’s discuss what was actually happening.
The people on the train were reading a newspaper. Many news items and articles in the newspapers are negative news. Not that there aren’t good things happening on the planet, but since negative news are sensational and awaken emotions, they sell better. Therefore, you find a lot of news about disasters and problems in the newspapers.
