Manufactured Consent: The world is FLAt
The world, no longer in focus, has succumb to a blur of movement amidst the obscurity of media images and sequence of endless distractions and schizophrenic moments. In the space of post-history where all grand narratives dissipate, technological dependency diminishes the tangibility of our experiences. Our collective consciousness has been reduced to a scattered daze that drifts from the new multiplex to old strip mall, from one meal to the next, twitter to text message, coffee to cigarette, rush hour traffic and the fast food drive thru. The state of the spectacle empties and nullifies every real identity. In its place, the media offers semiotically encoded avenues for ideology and identity construction. There is no reality outside representation, but rather a socially constructed system of meaning.
