TALK SHOWS & SOCIAL MEDIA

TALK SHOWS & SOCIAL MEDIA
© Farouk Asvat

     Talk shows and social media sites merely give the illusion that people actually have a say in their lives.  Just as western democracy gives the illusion that people actually have a say in their affairs. 

     These are the ultimate weapons to create the illusion that the people are doing something about their situation.  Not only does it waste an inordinate amount of time, it detracts people from actually doing something meaningful about their situation.  

     In most communities around the world, which are largely communal, (unlike the West), the old methods of word-of-mouth and the telephone still serve the same purpose (especially in highly repressed societies). 

     And it is not social media that facilitates uprisings - it is the injustice, oppression and poverty in society that spark revolts. 

     In fact, the introduction of the internet has not reduced tortures, massacres, the killing of civilians, wars, the invasion of countries, or the re-colonisation of the world.  It merely gives the illusion that people 'know' what is happening in the world. 

     So what do all these people who have all the information at their fingertips do, except surf the web with the latest gadget at their disposal?

                           but by those who watch them without doing anything."
