We are Living in an Artificially Induced State of Consciousness

Nathan Janes, PUPAGANDA.com: Since its inception in American homes in the late 1930s, television has essentially given America it’s culture.

Today, television watching is the most popular leisure activity as more and more people are choosing the fantasy world of TV over engaging with others in real communication and experiences. Where people once wanted to explore the wonders of the world and nature, now many explore the world outside their homes only through what they view on television.

Once a vast majority is living the same reality through television, then they are more predictable and easily managed. The television does an excellent job placing everyone that watches it on the same page, all sharing the same views, worries, interests, and idols.
