Although Television acting as a mass media to bridge peoples’ social life and modern world, it still has many serious drawbacks. Let me explain my opinion by three bullets.
So, I’ll start by filling you in the background of “Coach Potato”
Finally, I’ll elaborate on why we “lost mutual understanding” causing by television.
Television provides lots of programs to attract people watch them. These programs are full with sound and various image art to persuade audience stay tuned. Especially when people back home after working all day long, these programs grab all their attention make them sit on the coach stick in front of TV, indulge in these entertainment then become a coach potato.
In order to grab audience attention, the TV program full with Violence, Sex and Propaganda. Those things are minor in real world but major in TV show. The unscrupulous themes can be easily imitated by young children and adult, because they are detail enough and frequently published over and over at media. People who addicted in TV program too much they got problem to figure out what went wrong.
Finally, we lost our trust to human being. We lack of patient to understand who think in different with us. We indulge in the phantom world that TV creation too much and forget what is real. We lost the patience to maintain mutual relationship between people. Finally, we lost the connection among friends.
How to maintain a lasting meaningful relationship is depends on how you understand and familiar with real world. If people who addicted into TV program too much, he or she literally lost control by phantom world that TV program created. Moreover, they are totally block out and forbidden by read world.
