That is a very interesting comment. I don't understand why one would
want to figure out how it is put together by watching it. The effects of
TV are to affect my behaviour and why should I subject myself to
potentially harmful memes? I understand how it is put together to a
small degree and what I do see I don't "buy" or accept on a general
basis. Would one subject themselves to aids viruses in order to
figure out how they are put together?
