Checking the political, financial and overall U.S. media landscape reminds me how much emphasis we put on our actions and consequences. Could this be an opportunity for us personally or do we just numb ourselves with constant viewings?

Does counterprogramming like Grand Theft Auto IV and Iron Man really help the nation grow? They certainly give people a break/escapism. Short term solutions. The long term seem to be where the answers are. I keep thinking about how the economy ties into entertainment so much, not only media, but gas for traveling and tourism, etc. etc. Our individual action can mean a lot, but in this world, money seems to be the deciding factor.
