Illustration: Through the ages forcefully people domesticated power. Today peace-loving ordinary people diversified into “wimpy” type!
What is Capitalism?
“An economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.”
How political system and corporates work together?
Media is the number one powerful weapon in modern capitalistic economy where stock market, corporate and government are sitting side by side to control public voice they will. The combination of mass media and corporate power had transformed the “language of ideals” into the “language of images”. News had become dominated by public relations by “pseudo-events”.
Indeed media philosophy stands on three basic human psychological studies, “Conspiracy”, “Scandal” and “Emotion”. Three topics people love to read and easily misguided.
Who are used as weapon? The real conflict makers!
Soldiers, judges, cops, investigators are used to control laws and orders. Some of the villains are used as secret agents who are channelling intelligent people into corruption?
Inventors, writers, journalists are nerds who are madly working for pseudo-peace and being used by the government and corporates. Their good inventions are always being misused by capitalists’. New technologies, combined with a traditional craving for novelty and penchant for fantastical salesmanship, were increasingly distancing life from reality.
Super models, porn film makers, celebrities are used to create illusion to destroy human quality and superiority by self-delusion. “Love and lust, between the ennobling power of attraction toward the beauty of a whole person and the destructive force of possessive sexual desire.” The Si-Fi horror film Videodrom (1983) is now become alive.
What has been lost? What has been gained?
News making replaces news-gathering, celebrities replace heroes, tourists replace travelers and images replace ideals. Fake identities are being staged and scripted, to create false impression that often had no relationship to any underlying reality. Interactive films justifying revenge, cyber sex and recreational evil are now made and distributed. (Daniel Boorstin)
Patriots are those fools who are fighting for their country by the name of God. The ruling government hardly care for your son or your future. They are making policies to sleep on money-couch. Terrorist and mafias are also their friends to erase the honest. Today in Asia, Europe, Africa, and America, the story is same.
Government and corporates are meeting at “pseudo events”, using media and bagged up huge amount of money indirectly from the society. They are trying to establish a concrete future for their offspring. Invisible hands of politics is trying to become invincible. The capitalists and economists are designing secret policies and trying to pull the social ropes towards their own. Economic determinists are closer to the truth; but even if the news is critical of socialism, journalists become merely public-relations agents for capitalism.
Business complexities, the laws and orders are designed for the benefit of the higher class. All you become a moron, an escapist or an opportunist. Highly educated people are parting themselves toward the third world countries for social work to survive from the rules of modern capitalism.
Studying theology is the weakest choice to survive in the capitalistic world. Society is in danger from the growing role of false belief under capitalistic policies and media controlled environment. ACTA is also an illusionary game of capitalistic knowledge control policy. They are trying to chock the freedom of speech. Today the world is living in an “age of contrivance”. Illusions, animations and fabrications had become a dominant force in the society.
