Today’s servant of power is:
I can’t stand any type of phony-heroism. To Catch a Predator is the perfect example. Nobody working on the show actually cares about right or wrong or what is ethical. They only care about creating the appearance of such things. Yes, some of the people they catch are shameless and wicked. However, they seem to work very, very hard to bait people who are, in a way, mere targets and pawns in a scheme that is merely about drawing in audiences hidden behind a guise of carrying out a commendable public service.
This type of behaviour is pretty much how Western society operates. We see this from the fake heroism within other television shows such as House M.D. to the fake heroism of the one or two Western military campaigns that are executed without forthright self-interest only as a PR stunt to justify far more brutal and sinister military campaigns later on.
The network executives of NBC and other stations have shown without fail that they are just as shameless and wicked (if not more so) than many of the “predators” that they catch. They just enact their wickedness in a different fashion altogether · in ways that are more law-abiding or in ways that manipulate the system, the laws, and human consciousness itself to serve their own interests.
They’re pretty predatorial themselves.
