Television

"It is by no means far-fetched to see today's television consumers as masses of mental prisoners who get their values and their views of the world from the programs and images that powerful corporations or governments keep feeding into their minds.The world in which they live is essentially a television world. Like the chained prisoners in the Cave they rarely even wonder whether what they see is real."
--Jorn K. Bramann, on media and Plato's Allegory of the Cave.
