It is strange why people can become so obsessed with shows which are engineered for effect. The show Love Island, has become extremely popular in England over the past few years. Why? I have no idea. It’s a bunch of young people put in a Spanish villa together trying to find love.
I think what it all boils down to, is that the majority of the population like to be entertained. They would rather consume than create because it is easier. Creating things is difficult, it doesn’t always work out the way we intend. There are less risks invlved in consuming as an audience.
I could be wrong, but this is what I perceive to at least be part of the problem. Unfortunately, I can’t see the problem going away anytime soon!
