As the world's population bloats, and billions of radar blips get on with their daily struggles, select individuals are nominated to be our front persons. Actors who play out our fantasies - not just on screen anymore, but in their daily lives, too. The pressure is on in the cult of celebrity - not just on them but on the fans, as well. Enough is never enough.
Because it is all superficial and surface - with little substance - it's like mental junk food. No nourishment is occuring, just quick, addictive sugar rushes.
What it points to is an inner emptiness. People seeking to fill a vacuum. Through lack of meaningful interaction with life - come about from too much time consumed by internet, TV and consumerism, many are failing to find fullfilment - which can only be achieved by diving in to life and facing it head on, getting your hands dirty, having real world adventures - and not being overcome by the pursuit of money/materialistic trophies.
It's sooooooo easy in this day an age to be a passive absorber. But it's not good enough, people! It's not a life! Forget the world presented to you by the powers that be. Make your own! Make your own! OK. You can watch Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones. But that's it! Then - outside!
