RET Abolishes Most of the Human Ego

BySAM KLARREICH

It is interesting that a greater number of people than ever before plonk themselves in front of their televisions, and even more in front of their computer screens, quite content to be entertained. Shows and websites of every variety are popular. However, some run into trouble because life is passing them by. They may be criticized by others for being lazy, not contributing, being addicted to their screens. These people may remain chronic, passive bystanders and view a world that they are part of, yet not a participant in. No wonder severe boredom, self-deprecation, and eventual dissatisfaction with life set in.
