Soap operas for the mom.
Sports for the dad.
Cartoons for the children.
Cellphones for everyone.
Keep them dumbed down
so that they won’t ask any questions.
Keep them preoccupied
so that they’ll be strangers in the same house.
Keep them in a box
so that they won’t be able to think for themselves.
They’ll think that they are living in reality
but it is a made-up world.
