We live in a culture in which it is the norm for each and every person to be overly concerned and distracted by the activities of celebrities.
Instead of simply living our lives, we choose to focus on the doings of others. Open any supposed news page on the internet, what will you see? Oh,
you'll see world news, weather, sports and the like, but what else will you see? "Is Kim K. Pregnant?", "Justin Beiber goes on a luxurious
vacation with some other untalented celebrity", "Snooki proves just how much of pig she really is with her latest antics" etc. etc.
Concerned readers can get any and all juicy tidbits on some random athlete and his insanely arrears child support, or which news anchor has decided to
tell the world that he/she is gay or bi, or pan-sexual (whatever the hell that means), yes, THESE are the topics that come up at the water-cooler
these days, it disgusts me to be honest.
Ridiculously STUPID "issues" like these are going to be the indirect cause of the extinction of humanity. How? More people know the most minute of
details about the lives of these unbelievably imbecilic attention-whores than know about the goings on in their government, town or even neighborhood.
When whatever event is about to occur that will finally do us in, most of us will be too busy ogling Gisele Bundchen's "post-baby bikini bod" to
even take the slightest notice.
I understand that this is purely a rant against this tabloid culture that we live in, but I find myself griping about it constantly and was hoping to
get a little of it off of my chest.
These people are like leeches that do not subsist on blood, but on the intelligence of their host (us). How many episodes of 'Honey Boo Boo' or
"All My Babies' Mamas" are enough for people to snap out of it and and take stock of their remaining brain cells?
If the point at which someone is able to recognize the intellectual destruction being committed upon themselves doesn't truly exist, then, I submit
that mankind is doomed.
PHEW! That felt good! I have plenty more in the tank, in fact, probably enough to write a hundred of these rants, but it wouldn't change anything
anyhow. I'll just settle for rambling nearly incoherently once in a while in order to preserve my own sanity.
