What Affects Us
Kurt Vonnegut talks about our need for drama:
“People have been hearing fantastic stories since time began. The problem is, they think life is supposed to be like the stories.”
This has to make you wonder: how many other aspects of our life have been affected by supposedly “unrelated” industries?
I have reasons to believe that the beauty industry has been the most harmful one in history.
I believe that Hollywood has negatively changed the way both how Americans see many foreign countries, and the way foreign countries see America as well (this has been changing recently, thanks to globalization).
Understanding what affects us is the first step towards objectivity, don’t you think?
