Political Entertainment

 

Crowd manipulation and psychological warfare

Increasingly, political culture resembles professional wrestling.

A stage-managed reality. Scripted stories bleed into real events.

The blurry line between truth and untruth.

Heightens the audience’s addiction to melodrama.

The debates, with puffed chests and mine’s bigger than yours.

Get the crowd to hate or be on your side.

I blame comic-book heroes and villains. Early conditioning.

Guess who’s the joker? So long as the media circus makes a profit.

Well-paid journalists looking for book-deals. The beat goes on.
