Have you ever wondered why they call it television “programming”?
Wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact that it INFLUENCES people how to behave would it?
Wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact that it TEACHES people to adopt an identity that isn’t their own would it?
Wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact that it CONVINCES people that they need to act a certain way to be COOL would it?
Wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact that the WORLD would be a better place without it would it?
Fact : programming is programming you.
Yet Another Reason To Get Rid Of Your TV :
Is ANYONE here to make friends?
This “reality” makes me think there’s not much difference between television programming and how these people feel/think at work, at home and in society at large.
Are YOU here to make friends or are you just here to *win*?
You *winners* aren’t able to answer that honestly and that’s ok – you didn’t come here to make friends.
The rest of us didn’t come here to make friends with self-serving bullies.
Sadly, according to this study, the bullies aren’t going away any time soon.
It’s easy to get down about this but, fortunately, there ARE good people around who help balance them out : )
The only catch is, you won’t see or *meet* any of them on TV.
