Another Example of How Powerful Mass Media Is and How Dumbed Down Americans Really Are

Can’t tell you how often I hear people scoff at the idea that mass media contains tons of subliminal messaging/predictive programming.  It is, after all, called Television programming.

Substance is no longer important to the sheeple.  One of the most important parts of the day for the typical American is the nonstop worship of the celebrity (while at the same time completely ignoring world-world events by choice and the other by willful ignorance) as this video clearly demonstrates.  People used to be important (and with it often came fame) because they actually accomplished something.  Sadly, those days are over.  People are now important because they are…famous.

Stop and think about that for a second.  Then think about why people from the Jersey Shore, Bachelor/Bachelorette, etc. (really, just choose any reality TV star).  Why do people even care about these people?  In the end, what really makes them any different than you and me?  Even 10+ years ago, most people were still important for a “real” reason.  Actors were famous.  Musicians were famous.  Not all of them were true artists but they at least had some talent.  But today, the only thing that separates you from the celebrity culture is money, fashion, and a camera.  It’s the way the social engineers want it.  But the vast majority of us are willful participants in this madness.

Some of us roll our eyes when we hear the latest celebrity gossip.  But most secretly love the drama.  Many are blatantly open about their obsession.  We actively engage in and perpetuate the culture by paying attention.  Just something to think about the next time you are zoning out in front of the TV instead of playing with your kids, talking with your significant other, spending time with friends and family, etc.
