In London today: - We have apparently re-introduced the Roman Arena type mentality in watching a war as it progresses on television from the safety of our own homes: - i.e. safety and personal gratification issues. I wonder where this will lead; do we now have to produce a war when the television ratings and economy are down (advertising revenues) in order to stimulate the economy (as I suspect)? Or will the multitude of “experts” engaged in the analyst of what’s going on be sufficient to support the economy of the country under attack? A new breed of journalism has been born supported by the seemingly multitude of academics leaving university with degrees in “Media Studies”, this is an easy degree to get, yet they seem to have taken over the world by their manipulation of the media/politics, and understanding, as politicians think they are all powerful in purporting and delivering their views, or bending their views to conform to the currents aspects of public opinion. Even the military are subject to their views as the current war proves. Even the standard press (yes newspapers) are lost in this quickly moving group of scenarios. Media personnel will end our civilisation by their lack of knowledge and single-minded approach and lack of experience.
