Good observations. Myself, I find TV to be an addictive wasteland. There is truly nothing new on TV. The stories are improved, slick versions of the 2000 year old Greek tragedies assisted by High-Tech, tweaked by visual arts and presented as being fresh like you might present Wax Fruits.<quoted text>"Ray Bradbury has stated that the novel is not about censorship, but a story about how television destroys interest in reading literature, which leads to a perception of knowledge as being composed of factoids, partial information devoid of context."
Television?!?! I wonder what he thought of the Internet?
The mind needs to be fed healthy, nutritious food for thought to remain healthy. Today, the minds of millions are being fed Wax Fruit by the Temple Priests of The New Reality.
