Some people tell me that I am selfish, or crazy, and that it is ridiculous that I am ‘oblivious to what is going on in the world’, because I don’t watch the news.
It’s true that I do not consume any news, and that I learn of current events only through direct conversations with people.
But, I do know what is going on in the world, from at least two perspectives:
1) What I can observe, directly.
2) What you tell me is important to you.
