I wasn't talking about topics that push your button, but talking about negative topics. These topis I mentioned in my above post do not push my buttons, but are quite negative. Brutha's post made it seem that reading such topics would not affect someone's consciousness.
I haven't tried to read 12 hours of those material. But an hour of reading about genocide might rather increase me energy because I will think about solutions and about the big picture that produces those events.
