i tried to give TV another Chance today while i
was eating my lunch.
I switched to BR alpha which advertises to be
education TV. So far so good.
When i switched a television series named
„planet wissen“ started.
Todays subject was violence among young people.
The most interesting part was the introductionary
sentence of one of the moderators, it was something
„Violence among young people grows everyday
and especially the brutality rises over the years
like we can see every day in the media.“
This is such a big bullshit. But this is a very good
example about how far our society has come.
We dont need no studies, no proofs, no scientists
Media is the proof of it all. Reality is what media
serves you and nothing else.
This is the message that was sent by the series.
And this is what becomes truth more and more.
Some decades ago media was seen as the 4th
power in germany besides judiciary, legislative
and politics. I believe this is how media
was seen in almost every industrial nation.
However, today media seems to become the
power. More and more with every day passing by.
There is a very nice and accurate song text
from the Gorillaz in their song: Demon Days:
„In these demon days it’s so cold inside
So hard for a good soul to survive
You can’t even trust the air you breath
Because Mother Earth wants us all to leave
When lies become reality
You numb yourself with drugs and TV“
This is what most of people seem to be doing
today. Even very intelligent and educated
Enough rant for today.
Maybe it gets some ppl thinking about it…
