<<He has come to believe that being a news consumer doesn’t enhance society. He also believes that restoring a former coal mine and giving it to the future does. “I see it as a contribution that has civic relevance that aligns with my passions and what I do well,” Mr. Hagerman said. “I’m going to donate it. It’s going to take most of my net worth. That’s what I’m going to spend the rest of my money on.”>>

He swore that he would avoid learning about anything that happened to America after Nov. 8, 2016.

“It was draconian and complete,” he said. “It’s not like I wanted to just steer away from Trump or shift the conversation. It was like I was a vampire and any photon of Trump would turn me to dust.”

The fact that it’s working for him — “I’m emotionally healthier than I’ve ever felt,” he said — has made him question the very value of being fed each day by the media. Why do we bother tracking faraway political developments and distant campaign speeches? What good comes of it? Why do we read all these tweets anyway?

“I had been paying attention to the news for decades,” Mr. Hagerman said. “And I never did anything with it.”

RT atmostbeautiful : 트럼프 당선 후 뉴스 끊고 오하이호 농장에서 새 생활 시작한 53세 퇴직 싱글남의 실험 Blockade. 따분하지만 정서적으로 더 건강해졌다. 매일 쏟아지는 정치 뉴스 소비해서 사회에 기여한 건 없었다. 개인 예술 하면서 사들인 인근 폐광터 생태 휴양지로 개발해 기증할 계획. http://bit.ly/2IhFOVz March 10, 2018 at 09:50PM http://twitter.com/atmostbeautiful/status/972454658022162432

The most ignorant man in America knows that Donald Trump is president — but that’s about it. Living a liberal fantasy is complicated.
