The Oscars = People Worship
In my view - there is no greater example of "people worship" than the Oscar Awards.
On this blessed night all pretenses that the "1%" are to be loathed are thrown out of the window as those who's performances are able to manipulate our emotions on the big screen are provided praise by those who live vicariously through their life experiences.
Despite the fact that many of them live dysfunctional lives, with discarded relationships too numerous to mention, they are held up as the epitome of American success by those who believe that the corporate class are the real thieves.
Those who are able to steal our reality as they take us into a fantasy on the video screen has far more power than a banker. While a banker can trigger mass protests - Hollywood drains people's discretionary funds from their wallets and their consciousness.
