ALL THESE RECENT SCANDALS SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO STOP THIS TREND!
I know there are enough channels and outlets to suffice, but why are we tolerating so much nonsense to enter our minds and ignoring scenarios that reflect our current situation? Yeah, go ahead and say it’s for our entertainment. Our ‘guilty pleasure.’ It’s almost believable. I wouldn’t have given it a second thought had I not seen a trend in the last decade of people striving to be some type of star by some irrelevant means. Spending countless hours trying to become someone with an exploitation background.
Let’s be clear so no groups rally against me. My taste does not clear the spectrum of entertainment and I may not understand why people are glued to certain shows, but I understand that my taste doesn’t dissolve any chance of my dislikes’ respect and admiration. While I’ll defend my dislikes about any particular show, webisode, podcast, movie, or song, defending someone’s desire to be famous by any means necessary is ridiculous.
So I ask again: When Did It Become Ordinary For Unnecessary People Be Famous?
When did we lose sight of those who are helping to promote our world? To progress our species? I am seeing multiple epidemics around the world. Nothing as major relative to the dark ages yes. But serious ones nonetheless. I’d name some, but I’m sure your news feed beat your eyes with it all day, everyday. All areas of importance are receiving blow after blow on multiple sides in multiple opinions with negative results overriding any hopes of moving forward from this sidestep we’ve come accustom too. Yet cameras all around some famous person’s baby? Articles trying to explain a one-year-old’s expression. People making millions just because. That’s where we are right now.
Let me put this in perspective: In order for me to start a nonprofit organization for…let’s say sheltering homeless people. Or an animal shelter for you pet lovers. After obtaining sufficient amount of education and experience, on top of the dedication necessary to move forward in my mission, I would need sponsors to help pay for it. Remember, nothing is for free. A proposal must be written pretty much begging people to help with the mission. Begging to help a situation that most people should hold dear to them. Of course, rejections would be received as the begging progresses because a variety of reasons: Not interested, not worth it, no money, etc. The journey will go on. Finally, once the funds are in, then begins the endless effort to make the mission a reality. Trust me, it won’t be easy. Especially since the begging is continuous. Always preparing for sudden changes such as budget cuts. And this journey is not-for-profit, in case it was forgotten.
Suffice it to say, the organization’s success will not be overnight and the journey will be uphill with a lot of stumbling backwards. We also can safely say that those who have a stake in having homeless people on the street will have an effect on the success of the mission. Oh yeah, they’re out there.
So I’ll ask another question: Why Are Unnecessary People Famous?
And making money based on being irrelevant?
Can someone explain why we are paying more attention and money to those whose unnecessary experience in life for some reason made headlines while those who spend their life putting the entire world ahead of themselves, barely getting shares on social media? How is it possible for someone whose biggest accomplishment was having shitty company can draw more attention than…ANYTHING RELEVANT? It’s sickening to know that although we do not want to deal with our current situation, we are not responsible enough to ignore the obvious distraction created and focus on what needs to be done.
Step 1: Stop making unnecessary people relevant.
