are some subtle chains people are slipping themselves into. The way the sale-tags
dazzle and the logos shimmer makes you so proud to puff out your chest and
show them off. The trans-global machine has made us slaves to new cars, new
clothes, new phones, new hair colour, new tatoos, new computers...
Time is running out so buy it now! Low downpayment and no interest for six months. It's hard to tell if the media is reflecting the reality of the world or if people are conforming to stereo-types perpetrated in commercials. It takes no time at all before you see everyone wearing the same sunglasses, standing in that inane pose with their cellphones pushed to their ears, driving the same cars.
Fads and trends can be unleashed on a population faster than anthrax thanks to the media monopolies. It's disappointing to see many young people entering professions in journalism, broadcasting, advertising and politics simply following the underhanded manipulative tricks employed by their greedy predessesors.
There is almost no challenge anymore to face the forces of nature outside of us...or the forces of instinct within us.
We are confronted from early youth with these modern devices of technology and unwittingly conditioned to millions of associations, sounds, pictures, movements, in which we take no part. We have no need to think about them, they are too directly connected with our senses.
Modern technology teaches
us to take for granted the world we are looking at; we take no time to retreat
and reflect. It lures us on, dropping us into its wheels speeding us forward.
No rest, no meditation, no reflection, no conversation—the senses are continually
overloaded with stimuli.
We learn not to question the world any more; the screen offers us answers ready-made.
It's time to challenge the engineers who have created this robot.
