The entertainment industry serves as an important psychological tool of the system, possibly even when it is dishing out large amounts of sex and violence. Entertainment provides modern man with an essential means of escape. While absorbed in television, videos, etc., he can forget stress, anxiety, frustration, dissatisfaction. Many primitive peoples, when they don’t have work to do, are quite content to sit for hours at a time doing nothing at all, because they are at peace with themselves and their world. But most modern people must be constantly occupied or entertained, otherwise they get “bored,” i.e., they get fidgety, uneasy, irritable.

thank you for this, i am so tired of people holding up two fingers and asking if i can see them without my glasses and it’s difficult to explain what it’s like not being able to see without glasses 

"Seeing New York (through my Giorgio Armani lenses), Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg.(Ann Street Studio)”

I agree.When I don’t have contacts in or glasses on I feel like all of my other senses are limited as well. I don’t know where sounds are coming from, when I try to look people in the eyes it feels like I’m looking straight through them. I am so grateful to glasses, contacts. I love technology. I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy seeing every leaf on a tree or the colour of someone’s eyes when I speak to them. It’s a beautiful thing, being able to see.
