Very few people get up and "walk around", figuratively speaking, to find out what is going on. They're too busy on a leash between work, the video store and home, and also don't strain much at whatever particular ideological leash they have accepted.


We watch tv news to find out what is going on, and they show us. Not that hard, really. And the ads are informative also.

McLuhan's observation that ads are the cave art of the electronic age takes on new meaning when we remember Plato.


Cave art painted by someone dipping blood from a skull of a child, smearing brains on the wall.
