TV deludes us to keep us company

tv

Often watching TV is almost inevitable, because it is the only means of distraction during lunch or dinner, and above all it is a company for those who live only at home. In recent years, some channels have introduced the so-called TV marathons (siticom or talkshow) which I assume are a purely American invention. But how well does TV really do us? I believe that TV does well when it distracts us in the right measure from our daily thoughts.

The internet is also a distraction. But it is different. For those who are thirsty for knowledge, the web is a form of addiction because one can always find something that enriches one’s knowledge. For those who are thirsty for trash, TV is the greatest danger, because nowadays almost all transmissions are transformed into trash.

  1. We noticed that we didn’t watch TV anymore, so we gave the TV to our maid 5 or 6 years ago. Haven’t looked back yet.
