Real World Events Are Sports
There are two flat screens – one is tuned to CNN, the other to an “all sports, all the time” channel. One was showing video clips of the chaos in Egypt; the other was broadcasting a college basketball game. Observing the facial expressions of those focused on either screen were identical; it was all just entertainment, a distraction, the hypnotic side-show du jour that captured their attention. The turmoil in the Middle East/Saharan Africa means little to the masses. Until there is rioting in their neighborhood, or in the stands of the home team, it’s all too remote to mean anything.
The public is composed of fools.
Why should anyone care about these brainless idiots?
No reason at all.
But politicians do; because politicians can buy their votes.
Mankind is devolving.
And NO ONE is paying any attention.
The facts no one wants to read.
