Media has always been the secret geeky programmer that would install a new message or keep repeating the same message every day in the minds of people on how to think, what to do and where to see. Its job is too subtle that most of us fail to recognize it in our day today life. It could easily be the numero uno force in controlling chaos by projecting a smoke screen.
Ever since the 2012 doomsday was proved wrong, The Indian media set their eyes on the 2104 elections and started their campaign by constantly repeating news stories of two gentlemen everyday.
The self-proclaimed “Responsible” media have already started to direct us to take sides. They got to do this because we have the choice to choose our leaders and they have the power to direct us on whom to choose. (Under the assumption that we are too busy with our lives and have too less time to think about whats going around us) Well, Giving us options is not profitable for the investors as well as invisible governors of our day today life.
The coverage the two personalities get is stupendous, their air time as well. We are constantly bombarded with these two names round the clock, experts discuss their strategies, their ideas, their bull shit etc. because when we stand in line under the scorching sun with the hope for better governance and change there should just be two names in our mind. Just two names because you know your vote for an independent candidate is never going to matter, the rest others have already been manipulated and guided to vote.
Even if the majority would be an average 60% with 31% for party A and 29% for party B, and that would still mean the joint 700 million consisting of people who chose not to vote and who vote for party B would be ruled for another 5 years by the manipulated public of party A.
Democracy is a Funny game.
“You wish to be free, but there is no such thing as freedom. You can redecorate dungeon to give illusion of freedom, but you are still in dungeon.” “I should’ve had the choice.” “Choice is illusion, same as happiness and freedom.”
- Carolyn Crane
Don’t forget to choose your masters this 2014!
We got no choice other than believing we got choice.
