Yeah, that commercial sickened me, I only watch TV maybe an hour per day with my dad during dinner time or the occasional football game but I'm more
than aware of the dumbing down of society.
It's also horribly prevalent in every other form of media as well, even video games such as Call of Duty. Everyone wants to fit in and humans were
engineered that way I think but it's not impossible to break away at least a bit.
In school I was an outcast, I opened my ears instead of my mouth and never had many friends or enemies, I saw how people would do anything to fit in
including giving up their self esteem or money. Those kids grow up to be tools and never achieve true happiness no matter how successful they are.
Then you have people like me who are never going to be successful and will get let go for "insubordination" half a dozen times in their life just
for not liking to be bossed around. I always think about how society would work if people just used their own opinions and spoke their mind more
often even if it is unpopular. I was fired from my last job for saying that "I don't care about school shootings as they don't relate to my life
and the media just glorifies the killer promoting future incidences." during a lunch break and everyone just gasped at me and called me a monster.
Nobody even considered what I had to say. I was just owned I guess. Well not anymore as I'm collecting unemployment from them and enjoying life
Thanks for posting this topic, I feel very strongly about this issue, I get reminded every Sunday that I'm horrible for not going to church even
though I live in a small town so it's expected of me so I have a lot of time to dwell on it.
People need to question the why of it.
