Dante:
 
Thanks -- so what would the world look like if the WORKING CLASS (or  any 
other group on whose "behalf" one believes they are waging *revolution*)  
didn't watch television anymore?
 
Would that REVOLUTION have already happened and how would we know it?  
 
What would the economy look like if television advertising (and all other  
mass-media, including the use of the Internet as an advertising medium) was  
eliminated?  Have any economic *radicals* ever made this proposal?
 
What would happen to "democracy" if election campaigns weren't allowed to  
use mass-media?  Have any political *radicals* ever made this  suggestion?
 
And what would happen to those who still read Guy Debord . . . ??  <g>

     Hi Mark,   

     good point.

     in my own case, its perhaps because I do not watch tv anymore...

Folks:

I'm curious about why there is so little  discussion, let alone *righteous*
anger, about television on this  list?

Thanks Mark.

I would guess it would change society.

But perhaps not by forbidding.

Hopefully this will happen as more individuals individuate ?

I look forward to integration between diversities of narratives,
developing and using tools based on Semantic Web / Linked Data ?

I like to support this approach - pdf : http://www.automenta.com/netention

With the potential to enable distributed and emergent forms of governance
and economics,

making it easier to create and use a greater variety of metadata in support
of our resource allocation,

relying less on the current centralized credit/debt metadata.
