How do I stop caring about global events?

I don't mean smoke a joint and lose my mind, I mean, keeping an informed view on things and well aware without getting worried or feeling prejudiced.

For example
>Immigration crisis in Europe
>Culture deteriorating
>X is terrible, Y is great

While all of them have a small semblance of genuine concern, particularly the first and recent attacks in Europe, I am becoming very paranoid and obsessive over it.

A few visits to /pol/ didn't help and even though I only briefly visited it, its begun to make me hyper cynical and discriminatory. For example gov is out to get us/SJW ruining everything. The rational side of me knows this isn't the case but I feel like I've become obsessed now trying to rationalize this.

How do I break from this mindset?

First of all don't do that unless you're already past the point of caring about outcomes.

Second of all, this is the same dilemma people have when they first realize what worldwide suffering is. They feel compelled to fix it because we've all been raising to take care of our immediate neighbors.

But you can't. Even if you were the president of a country you couldn't. So just kick back, throw your vote out occasionally, and laugh the rest of the time because ultimately you have no power in the situation and it wouldn't matter if you did.

Alright, I'll try to move toward that mindset. Its hard though, especially if what I think is the right view in how things are functioning but acknowledging that I can't do anything about it, despite that being the case, is difficult to process.

How do you mean?

And thanks anon.
