Lightbulb TV Watching: "Persuasion without coercion"

Memorable quotes for
Looker (1981)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082677/quotes

"John Reston: Television can control public opinion more effectively than armies of secret police, because television is entirely voluntary. The American government forces our children to attend school, but nobody forces them to watch T.V. Americans of all ages *submit* to television. Television is the American ideal. Persuasion without coercion. Nobody makes us watch. Who could have predicted that a *free* people would voluntarily spend one fifth of their lives sitting in front of a *box* with pictures? Fifteen years sitting in prison is punishment. But 15 years sitting in front of a television set is entertainment. And the average American now spends more than one and a half years of his life just watching television commercials. Fifty minutes, every day of his life, watching commercials. Now, that's power. "

"The United States has it's own propaganda, but it's very effective because people don't realize that it's propaganda. And it's subtle, but it's actually a much stronger propaganda machine than the Nazis had but it's funded in a different way. With the Nazis it was funded by the government, but in the United States, it's funded by corporations and corporations they only want things to happen that will make people want to buy stuff. So whatever that is, then that is considered okay and good, but that doesn't necessarily mean it really serves people's thinking - it can stupify and make not very good things happen."
-- Crispin Glover: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000417/bio

"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false." -- William Casey, CIA Director

Looks like we are all headed that way.

And we pay for the privilege, too. Never ceases to amaze me.

Well, right, people don't realize we pay for propaganda, since there are so many entertaining things in between.

It is the greatest hypnotizer. The greatest baby-sitter of today.

I had the pleasure of the beast last week when visiting someone.

It was only on in the background (not that that makes it any less harmful) but I noticed something peculiar.

It was a chat-show and the guests included two actresses pushing their latest bits. One was an American film entitled "It's war" and the other was Alex Kingston promoting the new series of Upstairs Downstairs, which will commence at the outbreak of WW11 (1938).

I might not have thought anything of it, but it did strike me as strange that there was so much mention of "war" in one light-hearted chat show.

I haven't watched TV for some time now, but you really notice this stuff when you get a quick dose of it sometimes.

I've been unplugged for awile.

when i do see the occasional tv the propaganda seems to have become more desperate.

Exclamation

I remember cable tv was not supposed to have commercial nor propaganda,
but the opposite happened after a few years.
