Don’t let Capitalism tell you what you want!
Pop Culture is a key part of Capitalism and its destroying us and even that is an understatement. TV, the media and other sources physically tell us what to ‘like’. Take Christmas this year for example, most people will go out rushing round last minute trying to find the new overly expensive toy because everybody wants it. The funny thing is, how can everybody be interested in the same thing we’re all individuals? It is extremely worrying that we all suddenly want the same thing, our children only want it because other children do, this is an example of the power Capitalism can have over our minds.
TV these days is filled with reality tv, the X Factor! This has single handedly destroyed entertainment, because we all buy into it and watch it nobody wants to be on TV at the same time as it because they simply wont be watched. And for what? X Factor, a show that gives thousands of people false hope and only one eventual winner, who then will fade away after their Christmas number one, because they’re only a product for Simon Cowell to make money from, they’re not treated as human beings, in the meantime thousands of others will be humiliated in public all because they weren’t as good as they thought they we’re. Humour never used to be about laughing at others but rather, laughing with others, again, Capitalism.
We live in a society were we believe to be successful in life you have to earn money, be a professional, own a business or become famous. Remember, to be successful in life, is to do something that makes YOU happy, not what you think should make you happy because thats just what we are told. Surely the true successes in life should be those who helps others, those who actually do something for society, those who fight our wars? Oh and that’s another thing, the ones who fight our wars are ONLY the lower classes, we are just a pawn in the ruling class and politicians game. The media brainwash us that as a lower class we cannot acheive things, it turns us against eachother, because after all this is what Capitalism thrives on, REPRESSION.
