Mass Media

Entertainment isn't what it once was. Not too long ago we were entertained by the scholars and geniuses of the age, be it Plato and Socrates who dazzled the people with their philosophies, or Shakespeare's witty knitting of societal issues and human emotion.
Today the loudest voices seem to be just that – the loudest voices. Though one could argue otherwise, the majority of material on radio and television airwaves hold little intellectual value. Majority taste has deviated from drama and moved on to action. Art has evolved into a monster that feeds on the bottomless capitalist pockets. The rustling of money overpowers that of the leaves in the trees.
