Stop the planet, I wanna get off!
I came to the conclusion a long time ago that this is social engineering on a grand scale, to deliberately dumb down the population as far as
possible. Pulp TV, the cult of "celebrity", endless trashy "reality" TV shows with plastic people (more Celebs in the making), it's endless, and
all brought to us by the same Media companies that operate both the TV channels and "News" channels. People sit and watch this crap and the
marketing people urge them on at every opportunity.
Of course, it also makes it easier for manipulation of the masses when it comes to propaganda. It seems the government (many of them in fact) want us
to lap up everything they, or the controlled mass media say, and look only at what we are being fed by them. No context, no historical background,
just the here and now, and their bias applied, in order to build the desired response.
Nevertheless, you'd think people would be a little more savvy, but I guess if your life revolves around meaningless trash on the TV and media, then
the brain suffers from lack of real stimulation and critical thinking.
