TV and SocietyAlthough television gives people access to some of the finest aspects of our culture, great plays, movies and music, and a wide variety of intellectually stimulating programming, most people spend most of their time watching the most incredible dreck that their minds are numbed. Time that used to be spent reading, or working around the house, or socialising and interacting witth other people is now spent in an endles search for more titillating, more vulgar, ever stupider "entertainment"

Made life easier but at the same time it has caused less physical activity and caused more pollution in the air.
