"Recently, I subscribed to cable television for the first time in my life. After only a couple of months of watching cable news and reality TV shows, I am mortified at our culture’s lack of engagement on substantive matters. In the information age, it deeply saddens me that we do not dive deep into real political and social issues that are facing our society. We have access to all the great libraries in the world and yet, our airways are filled with shows like, "Southern Charm" and "Ice Road Truckers"? This baffles me. With a noticeable lack of critical thinking and civil discourse, I am compelled to hold a mirror up to our society to show how we have lobotomized ourselves. Turn off the television. Put the smart phone down. Engage. Think. And, by all means, revisit real conversations with fellow citizens. Connect."
