Am I Entertained Yet?

I don’t think it’s too controversial to suggest that one of the main problems with our society here in the US is that the population is far too well entertained to care much about politics. Yet for someone who is quick to level that judgement on everyone else, I sure have a hell of a time not just whiling my time away on various forms of entertainment.

I don’t mean to suggest that I’d be writing my Congressman constantly if it weren’t for TV, but just flipping the switch to “active and productive participant in life” from “passive vessel to be filled with the best in electronic and multimedia diversions” is pretty tough.
