TV is definitely a form of mind control.
How clever to disguise mind control as a form of entertainment that all people on the planet like to embrace as fun and informative.
How fortunate for the powers that be that technology has evolved to the point whereby it is getting cheaper for people (not in 3rd world countries of
course) to have the latest model and then it is superceded by another innovation. "Hey, we have to have this new one now"
The average Joe Bloggs is captive to the professionals who have made a science of marketing and the psychology of selling.
Some people even use TV as a babysitter, to the point where their kids only eat take away or snack foods and have no clue about what is good
nutrition. They have to have all the latest toys and fad products and become real little horrors when they do not get.
Most people believe everything because they saw it on TV (or read it in the tabloids/papers), they are brain washed with disinformation and encouraged
to spend money on often useless gadgets, beauty aids and fast foods, goods and services they really do not need.
I often think that those who refrain from watching TV (or are selective about what they watch) and the poorer people who can not afford TV have
something far better in their lives than being slaves to consumerism.
Consumerism lulls people into a false sense that everything is 'hunky dory', 'it's all good'. Consumerism makes people competitive and
contributes to social divides. That is not good in any society and flies in the face of 'all men are equal'.
I reckon one day we will be sitting down watching the idiot box and a strange noise will emanate from TVs throughout the 'burbs as we wander
mindlessly to a muster point whereby we are sorted and shipped like cattle...for what I do not know (reminiscent of Red Alert PC game with references
to Tesla beams)
Just my crazy convoluted thoughts
