There is a mysterious force at work in society called leveling.
What is considered “acceptable” in society today would have been shocking just a few generations ago. Modern man is becoming a product of media consumption, deceived into thinking that he is living a full life. Every bit of ones own passion and potential has been cleverly drained from childhood through schemes & devices from TV & video games to political talk shows & complex documentaries.
Alone with a phone, one is left worthless as far as accomplishing anything true & real. A leveled person makes good frog stew, never making waves as passions are re-channeled into empty pursuits… Active in fantasy but passive in reality, the masses are eventually leveled out…
