I feel that Reality TV has dumbed down America because it seems like that is what most people expect out of their own lives. Drama and Nonsense. Your mind is a sponge, and whatever your feeding it is what your going to get in your own life. If you listen to philosophy, You will eventually become a philosopher right? Same goes for Anything, If you constantly feel your mind with that Non Sense on TV, that is exactly what you will get out of life, Non Sense. What ever happened to the shows that actually had a purpose whether it was to educate certain morals or love or just anything that the world could benefit off of. Then again when it comes to anything, all the media really want to do is just suck the world of it money and leave the rest of us helpless...Honestly i could go on and on and on as far as to the fact that America is founded on the same slavery system they had when america first began...This topic is deeper then anything i could even comprehend and with that said
I agree 1000% that reality TV, the media, the sly government keeping real secrets from us, the radio falsifying cultures and documents is the real reason why we are considered "dummed down"
