MANIPULATING THE PUBLIC
Every now and again I can use this blog to get something off my chest and today I am doing just that.
I think it all started with 24 hour news, there's not enough news to fill 24 hours so now we have to listen to speculation from the people who were supposed to inform us.
Then followed Reality TV. Yes everyone seems to want their 15 minutes of fame.
Even the government got involved. Our Prime Minister started ringing the contestants on these shows to wish them luck. Hasn't he got a proper job?
Scares about Global Warming have been around for years and suddenly the governments realised they could actually get more revenue by taxing people who weren't Green. Rising population is a much bigger problem, how long before they jump on this bandwagon?
Health scares blown out of all proportion by governments and the press. Billions being wasted on needless vaccines because they are scared of losing votes. What happened to politicians that wanted to change the world?
A new thing is now occurring in the British Media and that is famous people crying on TV. Last night even our Prime Minister gave it a go.
Do the politicians and the press take us for idiots? Because if they do and it continues in this vein we will have produced a generation of just that - IDIOTS!
