Why Do We Still Idolize The Rich And Famous?
Im thinking to myself why do I even have to start this thread about this particular subject because we should be past well it in my opinion. we
definitely should be anyway. I mean take this week on the front page of the biggest newspaper in England some footballer got arrested and then let out
again. That was front page news But who cares really I mean there is kids dying and we care more about some dumbass footballer who got arrested then
let out a few hours later.
He was on the front page again a few days later because he was talking to some “blonde girl” I mean is it just me who thinks that’s NOT
what we should be worrying about.
So there are in particular groups of the famous that really do not deserve it in my opinion and there are people to idolize and the don’t fall into
that category to me.
Now in England footballers are seriously treated like Gods and no im not exaggerating I mean people are poor people who are regularly murdered because
of what team they support Now there are plenty of things in this world to get angry over and kicking a ball back and forth into a net isn’t one of
Certainly isn’t one of those things to murder over in fact I don’t think there is anything that we should murder over.
Also the money they get paid is unreal especially in these current financial times but we are too afraid to lower them because of how much they would
complain and so on.
Now these are the guys who we truly idolize (as a whole) to the highest point but think about what they really do for a living. Technically their job
is to lie every single day and to appear on television doing just that so why do we idolize this why do we idolize those who are put into our
television screens. What is there to idolize.
Again they are the people who are seriously overpaid for what they do especially in the current financial times where people kill one another for any
money that they can get. So I ask again What is there to really idolize.
Now these guys are my favourite and the ones more worthy of idolizing because they actually have a talent but still IMO should not be idolized the way
that they currently are. I mean im my opinion the people who we should be idolizing are the ones who save lives or the ones who are genuinely decent
people those are the ones who I think we should be looking up to.
It’s just so frustrating to see people who think that being famous is absolutely everything because it really isn’t there is far more to life than
appearing on the television I mean what is this fascination with it I really don’t understand why people HAVE
to appear on the television at
some point in their lives.
I mean yes we all have heroes correct? Well how many of your heroes are ones from the television cause I bet about 90% of you are fitting right into
that category. Sure there is nothing wrong with that but I certainly do think that the problem is the reason that they are our heroes.
For example have a look at a footballer look at what they do and tell me why I should idolize him cause I see no reason to idolize a footballer what
I really do think that this is where we (as a human nation) are, because of this stunted because yes it’s all fine having someone to look up to I
think we should all
have someone to look up to and someone to idolize but the reasons that we idolize the ones we do are in my opinion plain
I mean why do we idolize the rich what have 90% of them really done for humankind. Chances are they screwed them over to get to where they have
I mean it definitely looks like us humans are more than willing to screw each other over I mean look at the suing culture that has gripped America.
(no offence America)
Am I crazy to think that humans could potentially have their priorities mucked up at this moment in time and that everything is currently perfect in
human’s way of life and how they live those lives or do you think that this idolization of the rich and famous is plain wrong and needs to be fixed.
