Slouching Towards Stupid



These updates concerning the deliberate dumbing down society mass media effects have become far to easy, essentially due to the availability of applicable material which clearly illustrates life in a devolving idiocracy. It would appear that the media seems to be working in direct collusion, with adverse social forces by enabling society at large to embrace a culture that emulates the most banal characteristics of a so-called modern civilized society.

We are in essence becoming a society easily entertained by the most useless drivel that the media hypocritically sells as newsworthy pieces of information. It has become a daily occurrence in online searches to be literally bombarded by this idiocy which has spread like a virulent pandemic infecting western world news sources with it’s banality and tripe.

The media reinforces and perpetuates societies predilection with irrelevancy, as a method of distraction from serious issues by providing an outlet that engages people looking for sensible current events which impact their lives on numerous levels. Instead they are presented with a daily barrage of absurd events which have zero impact on their emotional or intellectual growth. Regimented by routine and effectively dumbed down to form a mass collective of immature, infantile unsophisticated peons, working jobs they hate to buy shit they don’t need. The resulting effect is to create a docile population more easily controlled and adaptable to authoritarian policies, measures and laws. In essence, a society composed of automatons, aspiring for a false identity which passively acquiescence’s civil and political issues in favor of quick fix bread and circus idiocy.

The following video exposé abruptly identifies main stream media’s inherent obsession with propagating the American public’s addiction to celebrity idiocy in all it’s degenerative forms.



It is unfortunate that serious contemporary journalists such as John Pilger, who aggressively examined controversial political events, invoking critical dialogue which in turn inspired further research and investigation, are essentially unknown. Today’s journalists prostitute themselves hawking quick fix emotionally manipulative stories, purposely devoid of intellectual insight in order to further distract and dilute attention from key issues that have impact on a multifaceted societal altering level.

It is therefore no surprise to come to the imminent realization that society can easily be manipulated when intelligence has been diminished to such a level that critical thinking, individual rationalization and self resilience in key decisions are negatively impacted. Compounded and co-opted by a sub-standard public education modeled after the Prussian indoctrination system, as well as being exacerbated by a culture that worships the results of this dumbing down agenda.

The following excerpt is a random post in response to an article regarding US education. It is a clear testimony to this manipulative system which effectively encourages emotional reactionary responses as a deterrent to critical thinking.

One of the unfortunate ramifications is the manifestation of a culture obsessed with irrelevancy, self worship and misaligned priorities. In conjunction with this obsessive self grandiosity is the creation of easily quantifiable divisions of highly organized controllable groups. These groups are based on manufactured likes, dislikes and limited access to historically accurate information. The results are as simple as the random observation posted below:

In addition, this predominant decadent culture that has manifested exponentially in the west, has created such division that in order to control people, very little external influence is required. Thus a society so divided has little hope of unifying on paramount issues that impact their collective lives.

The so-called plastic hamster ball is a perfect metaphor for the insanity that has become the socially malformed, regimented lives of a vast majority of Americans. Indebted by greed, blind and ignorant, unable to see beyond the fabricated social facade that has become a life long cage. In this sense we are all indeed truly guilty of complicity and apathy which has reigned supreme in this land of false liberties, lies and deceit. If you are awake and aware, your only solace is within the confines of mental self isolation and fleeting comfort in the realization that it can and will get only worse, as time is a force multiplier and idiocy like much of the unwashed masses, procreate in abundance to further dilute the last vestiges of a true sovereign critically thinking vanguard of literate souls. We are fucked.
