A change in the community again! On the American Disease
The new economic, social and political cushion that has been created in the United States of America and to a lesser degree in other well off western nations has created an effect similar to that of the over use of anti biotics on bacterial populations. We are no longer preoccupied with filling our bellies, now our goals and desires grow further and further away from the subsistive lifestyle. The average American now aspires to own not only a TV, but a flat screen TV. We work outside of the home more than any other population in the world and we also have the highest number of cases of abnormal psychological and physiological diseases. This is what makes our industrial society more intriguing than the no longer viable idea of a society untouched by the industrial world.
Reality TV is just another new and upcoming disease that seems to be spreading to epidemic proportions.
