Discovery-History-Animal Channel – Get the meaning?

TV is always educational. But not always in a good way (now that I think of it – NEVER in the good way lately). What do Discovery Channel and History Channel and Animal Planet teach us? Well, it all comes down to this:

You can catch a lot of crab until extinction [Deadliest Catch], but it doesn’t matter since you will then get the chance to shoot a new documentary titler “King Crab – Endagered Species!”… Or you can cut off all trees existing [Ax Men] as long as you can get the chance to create a new show titler “Trees – How they become extinct from America]…

And since money is all that matters [Gold Rush], you should work long hours [American Choppers] without being paid overtime and under the possibility of dying [Ax Men, Deadliest Catch] …

Of course in all this lying sometimes is not wrong. As in numerous “survival” documentaries where the “hero”actor passed through terrible ordeals (in staged scenes) or as in series depicting the presenter getting into the heart of lethal / killing gangs with ease…

Or as in River Monsters where all fish are described as cruel eveil human killers… How could they not be anyway?!? They are in the… Nature! An all evil thing full with… things which want to kill us good humans! Let’s stay in our home watching fish and lions from Animal Planet. Who the fuck wants to see a real lion anyway?!? Let us have an actor show us how to do extreme fishing [Extreme Fishing, River Monsters] and let us forget that people in the places we visit are hungry and actually need to catch those fishes and not let them go out again. But what do those primitive people know after all?

Give all you’ve got to get MONEY!!!
Destroy everything in your way…!!!
Oh, and don’t forget to buy some guns along the way!

Because in any case we in the West are the best! All others are just “primitive” people who just do not “understand” what we are trying to do… We KNOW how to protect nature by killing every living being and then catching the last ones for “studying” and tagging them… [River Monsters]

And to add more spice to the mix, note also that EVERYTHING ancient people did were, well…, not their own accomplishments! Aliens helped them do them! [Ancient Aliens] Only WE do things right! No one else!


What a treasure of “knowledge” !!!

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
