Here is proof that the invention of television and the use of “hot media” such as television and computers are effective methods to program populations to believe as those who control those forms of media wish them to believe.
Marshall McLuhan and Noam Chomsky have been pointing this out for years.
The big question now is of course, What are we going to DO about it?
The ” 6 degrees of separation” thing showed us just how connected we all are to one another on this planet-is it possible that we could simply TALK to one another, use tools like NVC and active listening and actually counter the effects of hot media?
I think it is-but then I’m a terminal optimist;-)
