Throughout all of our readings we have seen how media affects all of us. In Postman’s “Media as Epistemology” he talks about the fact that a lot of of the things we view on television is junk but he is not speaking of it in a negative light. He appreciates the junk and states that the amount of junk that’s in print is much more vast than that on television. We as a people have been molded by the junk that’s in print or TV even if it’s disguised as news that we must digest. This has had an effect when it comes to the Zapatistas in Mexico. Even though they are just standing up for what they view as injustices and have formed their own peaceful community, the Mexican government views them as terroristic and a threat. They want to use their power as a government to poison the publics mind into thinking what they want them to. We see how powerful a group can be when people disguise their identity with things such as the Guy Fawkes mas. Even though they know what they are standing up for is right their is still that fear that the large body above them whether it is government or the media, will be able to bring down their entire livelihood. This theme runs especially deep when it comes to “The Corporation.” We see a vast amount of lies and deceit from all these companies even when the truth presents a danger to the public. They use their power as large entities, just as a government does, to change the narrative surrounding them. They know that we as a people have been conditioned to believe what we see on the evening news and in a newspaper and use that to their advantage to put any light they please on their public stature. We see throughout all of these readings and the film just how much of an effect this media and new technology has on us and shows us that maybe we need to drastically change the way we let these things form our mind for us.
