Well I shall discuss my hate for mass media.

 Mass media. It is my belief that all this technology has a duel purpose. it is not made soley for entertainment, social, or educational purposes. These devices are used to as a way to control the masses.
Television. The majority of the American and a large fraction of the worlds population have a television. Even if one does not have cable they have something plugged into it. The companies produce the programming and fcc regulates it. Why is it that there are such a limit to channels. With all the people in the world you would think these companies would make it easier for independent filmmakers to have a shot.No. We may choose what channel to watch but they are still choosing what we see.

 If the majority of a population is raised with television, the majority of the population gets their personality inducing ideas from it.
  For example: If a child is raised watching dragon ball z, the memory of dragon ball z will be implanted in their brains for life. If a child learns their history off the history channel, than that is the history they will most likely believe. Governments can justify their propaganda with subtle messaging from television. It takes a truly free willed person the question the programming and actually research it.
 If the majority of kids watch tv then the children without a tv or without any concept of television might become jealous upon learning of about the entertainment box. In this society the majority rules and being a child this concept is magnified due to the ignorance a young person possesses. This child may become singled out as weird  or stupid because he has never seen a television.  There is almost no way around it. The medias grasp is in all of our civilization.

 Some technology, like video games for example, have the same effect. Instead of thinking or learning something new the individual is there interacting. Don't get me wrong I'm sure there are things one can learn by playing video games. Some video games seem to be a training program to help remove fear of violence or even prepare one brain for wartime strategies. Some games teach children complex thinking and puzzle solving. These devices keep us from doing actual physical things. They keep us from breaking free of this slavery to society.

 This reliance on entertainment keep people from questioning their role in society. These keeping people content is a great way to keep people under control.

  1. Partly the media seducing, party our choice and (desire) to watch it in my opinion, human lazyness/the comfort lifestyle. Reminds me of that old commercial that used to play(

    Anyway, nice to see a freethinking blog!

  2. There's a reason why older folks and smaller, more rural villages have stronger communities... because they grew up with people and not technology...

  3. While I agree with you about the television part, I think the computer and especially the internet are a great opportunity for people to build their own opinion on topics, simply because you can read about almost all viewpoints that exist on a topic.

    It is true that you don't learn much from Video games (I learned a lot from the Age of Empires series though), but games are for entertainment. If children play outside etc., they don't learn anything, too.

    Interesting post though, following

  4. Isn't this 'poem' from movie Team America? This movie is so true :D I recommend it if you haven't seen that yet.

  5. Your comment on video games is pretty generalized. Some games a developed to educate while others are developed to entertain.

  6. And I agree with you on the Mass Media.

    Also yeah, that is from Team America.

  7. I agree with ulaughulose. Except more our choice, and less media seducing. We aren't forced to watch TV or play video games, we just want to be entertained.

  8. Well, the media is a weapon, and I think all governments recognize this.
    I read somewhere that US TV shows were doing more to steer Iraqis towards democracy, than C-Span.

  13. Your post just shows how uneducated you are but on the plus side you could be the next dumb white rapper.

  14. Interacting can help an organism learn though, and the media allows information to travel virtually anywhere in the world. Team America ftw. Wouldn't that movie also be part of mass media?

  16. It's sad but true. Although if we didn't put up with the negative side effects of technology, we wouldn't be able to benefit from the possitives. It's a fine line we walk.
