“If you could un-invent something, what would it be? Discuss why, potential repercussions, or a possible alternative.”
Good Question that has got me pretty stumped….
I guess if I could un-invent one thing it would be Tabloid Newspapers… I wish I could go back to days where I would read a paper, for economics, politics,society,book reviews,theatre reviews…. Intellectual pursuits.
I wish I didn’t have to paw through 30 pages of reactionary bullshit, just review or politics section, and a dumbed down version at that. I wish a world renowned critic could use the word plastic without a media frenzy,I wish the age of celebrity was dead.
I wish news was news and not sensationalism, I wish “hot topics” were caused by public outrage not celebrity branding… I wish people would take the time to think, and reflect not just react like a cornered mutt….
I wish times were simpler.
I wouldn’t invent an alternative, I would just like to completely wipe out the “culture” that now engulfs the entire western world.
