Legions of Veal by Tracie Skarbo Printer Friendly

Sometimes I see society as a huge herd of cattle in front of TV's, sitting in lazy boys with hooves up and udders pointed to the sky, transfixed by the latest advertising frenzical hypnotism.

Drooling and mindless and sitting in a pool of depression because their bodies are rebelling against the unusual lack of movement. Eyes gobbling up digital depictions of what will make them happy in mind and body if only they have enough money or balls to receive the debt required.

The big boys laugh as they program their armies of chattel with channels of junk food for the mind into more and more blind consumerism, that in turn lines their pockets with more golden thread.

Will we wake up from this self induced slumber? Or will we only be usurped by legions of veal, each individual connected to the next with umbilical cords tattooed with Twitter?

Call me cynical, but I don't see humanity waking up any time soon. Thinking is hard, and a large percentage of the population would rather look at a fuckwit reality show than a book.

I agree with you Ray, unfortunately this seems to be the case. We need a kick in the arse to get us up and moving again, and to unplug from the Matrix...
