The things we do for entertainment

The things we do for fun... are taking a lot of time. According to a google study, the average American watches 5 hours of TV a day. This is undoubtedly detracting from family and community ties. Instead of participating in public affairs, Americans have a propensity to stare are a bunch of flickering lights.

This is not entirely surprising following the decline in participation civically. While some eat and watch TV, or perform other activities. Some who are watching are watching the news and being informed. This situation however, is also covered in daytime TV, reality shows, sitcoms. That much TV cannot help but be accompanied by atrophic behavior, leading to obesity and declines in civic participation. On the plus side, a definite target for revolutionary interruption of laziness.
