The Trouble With Media And Entertainment

According to the author Neil Postman, who was a media critic in the 80s, the quality of information is diminished by the media, and our desire to be entertained is amplified.

  • The media influences us more than stuff like values, morals, family or loyalty. It is always focused on celebrating the celebrities, the rich and the famous.
  • The media emphasises the fake image we present to the world, and social media has accelerated the phenomenon.

The Impact Of Entertainment In Real Life

People consciously or unconsciously get influenced by what is shown in movies, TV shows and social media, just like kids get influenced by their environment and mimic how their parents talk or behave.

If we ask a 10-year-old kid about what they want to do when they grow up, most will say that they want to be rich and famous, like a movie star, basketball player, or YouTuber.

Fantasy Vs Reality

Most of what we see on TV and social media is fake, even reality shows and video blogs. It is fake because it has an agenda, a desire to be viral and entertaining.

It creates delusional expectations on what life is supposed to be in the normal person watching at home.

Same Action, Different Times

  • If a person puts the same kind of investments in 2000 that worked well in 1950, he is likely to lose his money. This is because we live in different times.
  • Being rich and famous does not mean we have to do what others do.
  • We only have to turn inward and focus on what truly matters: Value, morality, character, and being a good person.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
