I wasn't sure on what categorie to put this under.
Everyone is fake. at least at some point in their daily lives. how many times do you tell someone during small talk how you really, really feel about
things. its a tv generation. Kids grow up watching real people on tv, people they may want to emulate. But everybody on tv is fake, everybody. The
camera is always watching. Even if a person were playing a role as theirself it still wouldn't be genuine life. When someone takes your picture you
smile or pose. Its impossible to just "do what you were doing." So true life is not captured on film unless the person being filmed or photographed
doesn't know about it. People on tv and movies pretend to be someone else the entire time, but its supposed to look like real life. Even MTV's Real
World isn't the "real world." We don't see all the cameras watching all the time. There should be a show showing only all the cameras, camera
persons and equipment. People can't really be themselves when someone is always watching. Their real personality may be exaggerated or hidden. They
may not understand their own intentions and that's why I say their blind or caught up. When I do things I see and understand my own intentions which
allows me to see and understand other peoples intentions based on their actions and reactions to things. (you can see it in their eyes). I respect
actors greatly because they have a hard job being someone else and being able to make you feel a certain way. Im just trying to understand and relate
the implications of the fakeness on all different levels.
