Pacifying Media, Motivational Media

Media which pacifies us and media which motivates us:

Something I have learned and discovered: there are two types of media, one type of media is the one the pacifies and entertains us to be passive, then there is the other type of media which empowers us motivates us and encourages us to do things and create our own artwork. Then it seems the goal is to differentiate the two and to avoid the media which pacifies us and only focus on media which empowers us.

For example, when it comes to movies or films, I find the best films are the one with a solo or sole protagonist (John Wick), and when you’re watching the film, you think that actor and hero is you. And this is quite motivational.

Compare this with pacifying films like Marvel’s Avengers which has a hodgepodge of characters, it seems to be more about entertainment which seeks to pacify you and to simply mindlessly entertain you.

For the most part, I find the best motivation in apartment I was looking at great art, or reading philosophy, especially the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. But it is your job to find out who motivates and moves you, and to be very select about what type of media you consume.
