"Far more seductive than opium, infinitely more effective in shaping behavior and expectations than alcohol and religion. Television is the most powerful weapon in psychological warfare in history. Consumer slaves in the west schedule their lives and relationships around watching T.V. They use it as a baby sitter for their youth, and wake up to this drug. They consume it whenever possible in the day, and go to sleep with it. They even take it in their meals. Television doesn’t kill, it pacifies, turning viewers into compliant zombies. They wear a vacant glassy-eye look on their faces, because they are in a trance-like state, this is the ideal. They sit still and ready for indoctrination."
