Media. The word can't be spelled with out first spelling me. This is etymologically irrelevant, however, the media profession does demand subjective interpretation and biased communication. Can one truly inform others without injecting their epistimology? Obviously not. At the exact same time our political structure demands the Rational Choice Theory be excercised. Voters punch the chad based solely on what their interests are and who they think will represent those interests. Both of these situations isolate and segregate. There is no longer a struggle for "truth". By that I mean, it is understood that at work and social events you don't talk about God and politics. Fealings may be injured. Egos deminished. The modern American, in media and politics, is searching for comfort not progress. To build ones muscles you must stretch and mildly tear the muscles and they will become stronger and larger. Instead we resort to MLB style comfort and growth. Bulked on steroiods while at the same time destroying the body.
