I stand amazed by the current state of our society, as homo fictus slowly creeps its way into our most powerful social roles.
Maybe it's because I grew up being terrified by a cowboy movie actor who wanted to create a remote nuclear missile system called Star Wars. But the fact we are all defined by the TV shows we watch is quite weird. In the 1960s at least it was the music: Beatles vs. Stones fans, Hendrix supporters and Clapton cultists. Bob Dylan made his best to convey some truth into peoples' lives. Today he is merely an old sir, confused by the cops as being a street bum.
Adults discuss politics on the internet quoting the Batman and episodes of Game of Thrones with the most possible straight faces. Any traces of philosophy, anthropology, or any other science, have been deleted from our daily talk. The Plan is working: both the USA and the CCCP killed their educational systems in the late 1960s, and business has never been better for the 1% who run things.
