I have always thought that that dreadful show Big Brother which is I believe in not just Australia but in other countries was designed as some sort of a sick form of social engineering and and Psychologists' heaven.
During the recent debacle here in Australia where two men sexually assaulted a stupid young woman who then said it was okay (duh!) it was revealed that one of the major sponsors (?) of the show here and I would imagine in other countries is that Pharmaceutical drug giant GlaxoSmith Kline. Now why along with Pizza Hut, Masterfooda and other fast food companies would a major manufacturer of anti depressants and other mood and mind altering drugs want to sponser a shit show like this?
I have to wonder is the show itself designed not just to see how far people on the show will go before they crack up, or assault people but are the viewers also being tested to see just what it takes to make us protest and how far can they take it before they have pushed it too far.
Wake up folks there is something terribly sick going on here. For those of us who choose not to watch it, we still have a responsibility to those millions of kids in their teens who seem to think it is okay to emulate the contestants. Going down that dumbed down "Animal Farm" path will lead many to emotional breakdown and self destructive behaviour.
Now why would GlaxoSmith Kline have anything to gain from that?
