What I find interesting about this is the reactions of the public. They range from hilarity and jealousy over not having been there themselves to doomsday lamentations. Just in case you were thinking otherwise, the fact that this pointless game has taken over the world is not an indication of the de-evolution of the world.
I totally agree that the points this person raises are conversations that need to be had. But not all the time. The world needs just as much of this as it does of that. As soon as the balance tips too far one way or the other, that's when it becomes a problem.
Contradictively though, there's just no way I can get behind the popularity of the Kardashians.
