of rice right and why is that woe to us? because you people and sixty-two million other americans
are listening to me right. now because less than three percent of you people read
books because less than fifteen percent of
you read newspapers because the only truth you know is
what you get over this tube. right now! there is a whole an entire generation
that never knew anything that didn’t come out of this tube this tube can make or break
presidents, popes, prime minister this tube is the most awesome goddamned force in the whole godless world! so, you listen to me listen to me! television is not the truth television is a goddamned amusement park television is a circus, a carnival a traveling troupe of acrobats
we’re in the boredom-killing business! so if you want the truth go to god go to your gurus go to yourselfs! because that’s the
only place you ever going to find any real truth but man, you’re never going to get any truth from us we’ll tell you any shit you want to hear we deal in illusions, man! none of it’s true! but you people sit there day after day night after
night all ages colors creeds where all you know! you’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here you’re beginning to think the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. you do whatever the tube tells you, you dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube you even think like the tube. This is mass madness! you maniacs! in god’s name you people are the
