The generational gap has shown its seems to such an effect that those who haven't yet converted and sold out completely to all the latest applicational tweet update downloads are not even realizing that their now ancient and archaic old models are but leftovers of a non-recyclable decaying past. Worst yet with the constant bombardment of the overly unsubtle volume-enhanced McDonalds Lady Kanye culture industry complex, we are numbed to the increasing compression and unable to realize that we have allowed ourselves to accept the conformaty of the now-norms which once was (not all that long ago if anyone remembers a time before cell-phone screens ruled our routines) considered an unacceptable and innexcusable paranoid dictatorship.
Alas so overwhelmed in the industrial complex working us to the brink of over-exhaustion, insomnia and selfish gainful preoccupation that we can not even manage to disconnect from the overexposure of the senseless meaningless fluff-o-rama which has become popular "culture" in the post Y2K age. We refuse to see the signs of our ogliarch overlords and continue to slave for their continued profit under illusionary pretenses of promised semi-implied compensation, not realizing that this very model is a thing of a distant past, held on by our communal disinformation and miseducation. We continue to allow the military culture industry to dictate our choices and preferences based on their corporate-sanctioned promotional tyranny in the form of vapid shallow products which fuel our own lack of attention spans, reduced to us seeping deeper and more firmly into an apathy when the noise gets too loud, until we find ourselves changing the channel, trading in last month's model for tomorrow's promise that the latest gadget trend will being us happiness, fulfilment and a sense of community never before seen in human history, now available in 60K downloadable streaming without interuptions during upgade.
This has become so fused in our modern culture that we are not even left alone long enough nor allowed any time to adapt and assimilate the changes that more are thrust upon us at greater speed and expense, leaving some of us in such a constate state of never-ending directing our attention and energy to what we are faced with. There is no time left to understand and comprehend what is happening, there is no time left for listening and appreciating anything which may or not contain any value. There isn't any time to even mention any of this for the latest trivial entertainment tools crafted by the media and the elite keep us busy trying to consume more disposeable products which are bombastically and systematically thrusted in the collective social medias and increasing LED screens now at every corner, in every subway train, in every bus and every public restroom.
For so long has the infiltration been allowed while the masses (hey, that`s us, unless you are one of the illuminati, right?) kept at bay by being starved by over-feeding that it has become completely acceptable by everyone to succumb to their pre-digested norms while we believe we are acting of our own volition, never being allowed to think for ourselves nor try to find try alternative forms of livelyhood. Our enslavement is complete since we don't see the bars nor the cages, in the forms of popular media and endless entertainment trivialled by its increased obsoleteness and recyclability into flashier more air-brushed rap-fueled clothing lines. We are their cattle, bred since the birth of our ancestors, kept in the constant darkness by their tools designed for our immediate pleasure sensory overload. "Disobey - It's the law".
"They have taken the hearts and minds of our leaders. They have recruted the rich and the powerful - and they have blinded us to the truth. Our human spirit is corrupted. Why do we worship greed? Because outside the limit of our sight, feeding off us, perched on top of us, from birth to death: OUR OWNERS! Our owners! They have us, they control us! They are our masters! Wake up! They're all about you, all around you!"
I could not have said it better myself:
"Even movements or styles that are considered marginal are, in fact, extensions of mainstream thinking (*). Mass medias produce their own rebels who definitely look the part but are still part of the establishment and do not question any of it. Artists, creations and ideas that do not fit the mainstream way of thinking are mercilessly rejected and forgotten by the conglomerates, which in turn makes them virtually disappear from society itself. However, ideas that are deemed to be valid and desirable to be accepted by society are skillfully marketed to the masses in order to make them become self-evident norm."
(*) The merger of media companies in the last decades generated a small oligarchy of media conglomerates. The TV shows we follow, the music we listen to, the movies we watch and the newspapers we read are all produced by FIVE corporations. By owning all of the possible outlets having the potential to reach the masses, these conglomerates have the power to create in the minds of the people a single and cohesive world view, engendering a "standardization of human thought".
