I don’t know when there has been a wave of resistance to Douyin and uninstalling of the king, and articles that stir anxiety abound, such as “From Douyin to Nipple Music, How It Destroyed Us”, “Entertainment to Death, is making You lose your ability to think", etc. After reading the article, many students found that they seemed to have no depth in their thinking, inattention, and vibrato at any time. After thinking about it, I fell into the trap of entertainment capitalists, so I decided to quit addiction and hard dopamine.
The result can be imagined, within a week of re-installing all the software and blaming myself and being happy. 1. The Bible of Modern Society The Fax List originator of this phenomenon often refers to a book called "Entertainment to Death," by Neil Postman, one of his media critique trilogy. Most of my friends in the media field must have read this book, and many of my friends commented that it is the bible of modern society. I just finished reading this book. The main idea of this book is to criticize all things for entertaining life. Shopping needs to be entertained, news needs to be entertained, and even learning knowledge needs to be entertained. Reading classical masterpieces is most afraid of being jerky and difficult to understand, but urban romance novels are catchy.
All complex information is presented in the most understandable form through media entertainment processing, people no longer think independently, the media is the truth, and there is no doubt about its authenticity. I have to say that in a book written 30 years ago, Neil Postman has a very keen grasp of social phenomena. Its criticism points directly at the upgrading of the media. The upgrading of the media from newspapers to television is the advancement of technology, which is correct.
