Television Is A Goddamn Amusement Park
Network (1976) – One of my favorites
In a world bombarded with mass media, how do we find truth? Sure, things have changed a little with the advent of the internet but we still have a responsibility to sift through the garbage and find the meaningful gems. Media channels are not direct anymore. They are communalistic, engaging, conversational ones that feed off of people’s responses. People talk amongst themselves. That is why social media is such a revolutionary phenomenon. Does it mean the people are right? Generally the group is smarter than the individual but there are few absolutes in the world. I guess the moral of the story is truth is a self actualization process. Is truth relative? Agree or disagree all you want, thats my answer, at least for now… Regardless, its a pretty fantastic clip.
