The numbing of the masses

with one comment

For the last eighteen months, I have been confined to the house with nothing to do but watch TV or Blog.

These activities could not be further apart in their objectives.

Blogging exercises your brain and comuincations skills whilst daytime TV, with its never ending Infomercials, soapies, and talk shows, does nothing but numb the brain to accept the violence, weirdness of the world’s freaks, terror and conformity with the opinions of the presenters and/or their sponsors.

Years ago in the vineyards, we gathered at lunchtime in the “Chuck Wagon” where there was a range of out of date women’s magazines (like the doctor’s waiting room).

The girls in the crew read and re-read these magazines all year long.  Now, if that is not voluntary brainwashing, I don’t know what is.

They come away from work each knowing who has been messing with whom on the world stage.  They read the latest dieting techniques whilst they put away another chocolate bar. They all read and probably cook the same recipes and it destroys their individuality. Blogging  V  The Media … a no brainer!
