Government & Entertainment – Can we tell and strictly enforce the difference?

Inspired by Vox’s article ‘How this 30-year-old book predicted todays’ politics.’

Running a country and making it better is not and should not be mixed with entertainment. Should tweeting ‘you’re fired’ or racism be regarded as governing a country? The definition of a government from the perspective of its people can only be fulfilled with actual results that show a rise in their prosperity. It is about what you accomplish by action not the image that you show to others. Either nature or somebody else is going to tear off those ‘images’ sooner or later. We should be ever vigilant of ourselves becoming passive spectators who only consume what is given to us on a screen. We should also be progressing towards what we were truly meant to be and resist the urge and pressure to be part of a social conveyor belt.
