The Celebrity Big Brother program has moved on to another dimension in their surveillance with the use of RFID on participants, just for our entertainment. It is pretty sad that we are a nation that feel entertained by such ‘white trash’. Have we nothing better to do with our time than to take part or watch these programs that encourage surveillance to a level of acceptance in a society where surveillance and location tracking is increasing on endemic scales.
I wonder how many of us come home each evening, and switch on the TV before even taking off our shoes, or changing our clothes to something more casual? I wonder how many of our brains are turning to vegetables as we sit in front of our TV to be enterained by this ‘white trash’? I wonder how many of us eat our dinner in front of the TV?
Thank goodness for blogging and social networking, for that our children are not lured by the ‘television generation’ that I guess that I am a part of. There is much negative to be said with children going online, but at least they need to think, act and make decisions whilst sat in front of their computer. Not like those of us that vegetate in front of the TV.
If you can think of any intelligent reason for the benefits of TV vegetation and this type of ‘white trash’ please share. I am always open to adapting my opinions if the arguments are compelling enough.
