A refined form of evil: You Tube commenting and the Mass Media

*

I seldom look at You Tube comments because I usually browse in Safety Mode - but the other day I did; and it struck me that most of them seemed to be revelatory of a very refined form of evil.

The You Tube comments were the product of people who were themselves deliberately wasting time; and the deliberate motivation of the comments was to waste the time of others.

This combination is extremely wicked, and its near-ubiquity on the internet is a damning indictment of something or other...

Yet, of course, You Tube is only one branch of the Mass media; and deliberately wasting time/ wasting the time of others is precisely what 99% of the Mass Media is doing 24/7.

What a world! - a world of time-wasting wasters!
