This is something I posted as a reply to Mike Stevens post. But on relfection of what I wrote I thought it something worthy of general debate.

I don't watch much TV or read the gutter press. The masses are controlled by the media. We are told how to live and feel by soap opera's and our children are constantly sold a dream that can not be achieved. Reality TV is just a modern freak show! And Talent shows are the only way to get a break. The gutter press tell us what is acceptable while digging away to undermine society for profit! Who voted them in!

 

Television exists to anaesthetize the people. Media is designed to keep then in check!

 

I DO NOT SUBSCRIBE!

 

Man, did I not see that rant coming!

I, too, read Mike's piece, and had much the same to say.

as individual we all see it, but join the crowd and our voices are lost in mediocrity

I did enjoy the rant. Perhaps I should rant more often. I am way to reasonable and considerate on the outside

Ya Dibbs. But I think you might be asking the wrong question about who voted them in. Almost as if it were for real, this voting system. And even if I'm wrong, slim pickings. Would not, you agree?

Slim picking indeed. Same pair of shoes just a different foot. I vote for sandels a much freerer choice foot wear

Rants are like gripes, you never see them coming. Maybe more like burps - they just free themselves. Be nice if we could do that with the systems. W.

That would require to much effort on behalf of all of society.

Thanks for commenting
