The Commercialism of Television To look into the mind of a television addict we must look at the big picture First we recognize the voluntary slavery that makes up the majority of modern life A I see it people get up early put on work clothes and work like machines for the rest of the day getting no satisfaction from their repetitive day-jobs Then come home around seven oclock to their families who have already had dinner and the kids already getting in bed By that time there is almost no room left for quality family time or anything else to pursue thats worthwhile Thus the person turns to the television for that instant dose of friendship and gratification that could not be found anywhere else during his or her day Once the person gets comfy on the lazy-boy he becomes quickly stimulated and amazed by the intense sound and picture of thirty frames per second and suddenly forgets thinking about the real world Notice how some people become extremely annoyed when you talk to them or distract them when they are watching a program or even a commercial And might even yell at you for walking in front of the TV As the hours of straight zombie-like watching go by the person slips further into the fantasy world of television and with you breaking that link between them and the tube comes as a shock to them Someone can be so engulfed that it becomes a regular part of hisher daily routine As a result of a lot of watching TV studies have shown that the heart rate and blink rate have slowed down dramatically and muscular function decreased down to the snap of a finger on the remote or the lift of a drink The stimulation of the picture and sound shift so rapidly that they must become completely relaxed to soak it all up Television is like an addiction and like any
