What is art if not a distraction, a thing created wholly for the purpose of enjoyment or to stimulate thoughts ideas and discussion?
I agree there is a whole lot of vapid programming, but I diddn't think there were threads about TOWIE or the soaps on here (I could be wrong).
I dont like most sports, and in my oppinion it is a huge distraction of the masses (often hand in hand with the television), but i don't see myself as
an arbiter on the matter and go on to rant about how it is mind rotting distraction from the $#!4 going on, especially come world cup time when lots
of interesting things often unfold, unseen, because PEOPLE ENJOY IT.
Alcohol kills you, cigarettes kill you, sunbathing kills you, hiking leads to grater risk of accidents, motorcycling is largely more dangerous than
other forms of transport, but we do these things, or not, because we enjoy them.
A thing does not have to be wholly good, and if there are negatives then the enjoyment taken from it to be null.
I see your point but to call denial to everyone is hardly the mark of someone who is making the world a better place because they do not watch
television, rather the mark of a supremacist or bitter man, which from your other threads I highly doubt you are.
