Anyone who sees life as anything more than pure entertainment, is missing the point.
In the 18th century, “The Enlightenment,” people understood that information was self empowering. During a period of trying to escape tyranny, people knew that hidden information caused reliance on those that knew and hid what they needed to know. Rulers and upperclassmen withheld education from the lower class in order to retain a controlling power. However, with the flight of the printing press, books, and industrialization, this allowed for mass communication and the exchange of knowledge that can increase independent power and devour reliance on a corrupt system. So the blueprints of what we call “news” was developed.
Originally the news was supposed to give us information to help us become more independent and more elaborate thinkers. News is communication that keeps us informed of the changing events, issues, and characteristics of the world outside. Though it may be interesting or even entertaining, the foremost value of news is a utility to empower the informed. The purpose of journalism is thus to provide citizens with the information they need to make the best possible decisions about their lives, their communities, their societies, and their governments. But the point not being made is that humans don't exist to be part of a giant entity or large group. Everyone and thing exists individually. Where has there ever been a large successful group of people that has endured over time?
