Popular Culture

Popular culture is about the able manipulation of clichés, of our natural fantasies of being young, beautiful, and powerful. Television shows that pretend to show us what life is really like aren't about clichés, they're about fraud, because they show those who aren't young, beautiful, and powerful (ordinary folks like us, in other words) reaping the rewards that properly go to the young, beautiful, and powerful.
