Just an Opinion!

Social attitudes and cultural output exist in a constant feedback loop. The more a society glorifies ignorance, the more its cultural output reflects the ignorance, and therfore the more it embrace the lies. The more cultural output glorifies ignorance, the more a society embrace it, and therefore more truth is burned up to feed the lies. The same applies with violence, consumerism, etc. The world has been in many loops, and will be in many till the people don’t follow these decieving loops. Someone will have to break these loop, and certainly it will not be the side that makes billions from it.

One loop is the loop which exists between the media and the audience.In my opinion, journalists and artists are those who strives to expose or express important truths regardless of popularity and economic remuneration, and advertisers are those who tries to generate consensus, regardless of whether said consensus has anything to do with important issues, and based mostly on economic remuneration. In that sense, many of today’s news media outlets are really a hybrid that reflect the values of advertising while pretending to do journalism. So if society which doesn’t show any value to the artists and journalists, or a society where advertisers thrive while journalists and artists struggle, is in a loop of deception. This kind of deception will always tries to keep the truth and beauty hidden from the people by feeding them up with decorative lies.

  1. You got THAT right!

  2. I think many fresh, new journalists go out into the world with the want to “expose and express truths”, but quickly get remoulded by our society of pessimism and fear into fear-mongering and pessimistic advertisers!
