TV is such an interesting thing. We are an over-media’d society. If you think about it, there are a few cultures that still dont have tv. I have family in the Philippines that don’t have tv or even a flushing toilet or running water. But what would it look like if we didn’t have tv?
We would have longer attention spans.
We would be a reading and thinking culture.
We would probably be more active.
We would spend time together and have conversations with our family – and it wouldn’t be to difficult.
We would be sharper thinkers.
We would develop what we would like instead of advertisers telling us what is missing in our lives.
We would buy less.
We wouldn’t have bad posture.
We would be skinnier.
But who would want any of these things?
