I’m not convinced that one is the other, but I am not dismissing it either. Good to read another blogger talking about the JFK stage show.
We live in a Truman Show world where just about every piece of “news” is in some manner designed to manage our perceptions. The real world is a mundane place … There are no terrorists, disease is controllable, people generally get along and are cooperative … and dumb, easy to manipulate. TV is the enterprise that spins our heads with fantasies of elections, public debates, opinion polls, suicide bombers, mass shootings, rampant outbreaks of diseases … all fake.
