They don't do anything besides put on a show and that's it. They seem to play a role in America's decline, how? The whole celebrity things seems like a distraction from the actual problems of this country. There seems to be no critical thinking or organized effort to examine the state of America and her relation to the outside world on the part of American citizens. Its almost as if they want to watch and observe whats going on in sports and shit but not actually partake in anything to somehow change or create things. Americans seemed accustomed to having things taken care of by other people/institutions and being passive; somehow this materialistic culture plays into that. It seems like there is no purpose to innovate, explore and embark on new things since the end of the cold war. Tragic since they pretty much have everything.
