Reality, and the new industry of reality TV stand in their own places. Reality television tries to mask truths about Self, guarding against exposure to the depths of the human experience, and encouraging its fan base to avoid living beyond mere existence. So desperate to escape reality millions of people plunge into the lives of shallow underdeveloped people groping for stature. As pitiful as it is reality TV is effective mocking high intelligence, and belittling introspection into the shadows. We pay for cable TV, and the things we ingest we eventually have to release. Whatever we release into the sensory world affects every living soul. How do we mature in a social climate that encourages people to spend extraordinary amounts of money to re-structure their faces, eliminate menstrual cycles, straighten noses, whiten teeth, and trains, and graduates thousands of criminals from high schools who can barely read and write? - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories
