The “news” today about those “top” internet searches from Yahoo has prompted me the get on and classify the first of the Satanic Veils. That veil would be media.
Behind the first veil: There are over six billion people on the planet. Most of them live and die without having seriously contemplated anything other than what it takes to keep their lives together. Ninety percent of all humanity will live and die without having pierced the first veil.
The first veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the first veil and find the world of politics. We will vote, be active and have an opinion. Our opinions are shaped by the physical world around us; we have a tendency to accept that government officials, network media personalities and other “experts” are voices of authority. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the second veil.
“What it takes to keep their lives together”. Self concerns only, right. Well
now, let us add to the mix diversionary bread and circus nonsense that is the Yahoo top pick. Britney Spears, the WWE, Barack Obama,Miley Cirus and I will spare you the rest of the nonsense and end with American Idol.
Words of Mass Diversion.
I sit here pondering how best to hunt wild suburban turkey for food in the coming months so I tend to get offended when my ISP Comcrass features a “Top Video” of Katie Couric’s new hair do. Kind of lends creedence to all those sci-fi/horror walking dead/zombie movies don’t it.
So in short a great portion of the internet not only mirrors the lamestream world it occupies the time of the self oriented ones preventing them from seeking enlightenment and gratification in politics.
