As the years since Christ’s birth keep counting, we encounter new trends over and over. Since the invention of TV it is much easier to promote them to wide masses. And then internet prospered which is even stronger tool for that purpose. We are being served with a lot of twisted, immoral content on an everyday basis. We are seeing people making fools out of themselves for five minutes of fame. We are seeing bunch of untalented, dumb people dictating us what to do, what to wear, who to listen to, how to think. Critical thinking is on a much lower level now than it was last year, and it is constantly dropping more and more. Nobody reads anymore. If there was no school book writers would bankrupt. People forgot that knowledge is power, and it’s the only thing that can help us fight the giant cloud of immortality and ignorance threatning to gulp our whole society. They are making us dumber everyday. Through music industry they manipulate our way of thinking. Only in this year, almost every hit song was about booty. Only 30-40 years ago mainstream music had such a strong lyrical power, that not a single one mainstream song can be even compared to it. People once appreciated when someone is trying to make a difference, to help others. Nowadays that kind of people is being ridiculed. That’s why all the people who are not completely brainwashed stopped trying to change the world, and focused on themselves and their families. I have recently read George Orwell’s “1984“, and although it is terrifying, it is our reality. I was shocked when I have read it. But after I thought about it, I realized it perfectly described our society. There is no privacy anymore, cameras are all around us. Every person has a tracking device (smartphone). The big brother is watching us, waiting to take over.
