Is it just me.. or are these wicked crazy times?
From the moment that Ugh the Caveman started scribbling his drawings on the cave wall – there’s been media; and this media has been used to incite, enrage and control us. It tells us what to think and most decisively – what to think about. The power lies within the subject chosen, not so much what is said.
For example, if I want you hungry I’ll just mention cheese cake. Now, I don’t really care if you obsess over cheese cake or not – I just feel like making you hungry. It goes a bit deeper too, because now I can mention gun control and lobsters. I might do this so that you’ll loosely associate gun control with cheese cake and lobsters. Why do all this? Well, subconsciously you’ll sort the three and conclude that gun control is the least of your concerns – there’s lobster out there, being followed by some rogue cheese cake… who cares about guns at a time like this?
The media controls us; too bad it’s not the other way around. Just an idle thought for a Tuesday morning…
