Social media content is getting bored and low standards only for me. I know you won’t agree with me. But seriously it is getting less valuable entertainment to kill boredom.
First I like to point out there is no intellectual and political statement embedded in it. What’s worse here that majority of content prodcer don’t have a rigid political ideology. Moderate social comments are worst and then comes following the trend bandwagon. Many content prodcer who follow the trend are pathetically so poor in their intelligence. They depends on others to develop their own intellect. It’s like Marvel duplicating theories of DC Universe or the otherway around. What I mean is that originality lost its way in trending.
Political statements: AIB (All India Bakchod) who started their social commentary/satire with leftist political ideology. 50/50 on PTV had a same ideology but in a modest manner not like AIB. Anwar Maqsood is doing with his writings and plays. Their contents have a substantial stance.
There is a famous phrase in urdu “naql ke liye, aqal ki zarurat hoti hay” (To imitate needs an intellect.) The problem is that most internet content are No-brainer for me. Stupidity is getting so mainstream nowadays that majority of viwers are losing their abilities of fine judgment. Or people who are growing up while watching this shit have already lost their ability to non-conform.
Random trending content: Popular culture is so messed up/fucked-up/hardwired in our mindset. It has become difficult to think beyond mainstream. Popular contents are not so good enough in its quality and some how it’s submissive/knee jerk reaction to conformity.
To become non-conformist won’t solve the problem but it will raise awareness. Every human beings has a voice. It’s his right to raise that voice in a progressive, bold and rigid manner like Manto/Anwar Maqsood/Jalib/AIB/Kashyap etc or in an illiterate, conventional, unprogressive ways like 7 din mohabat in, Teefa in trouble, JPNA-2, trendy phenomenon content etc.
Then there are those who raise voices only to get popularity. One of them is Oscar winning documentary director.(I hope you get it.) So deep down it’s further divided into fake social commentary and political statement to gain the attention and moolahs.
And last Follow the trend, grasp the roots or sow your own seeds to grow tree of knowledge of good and evil. All you need first to “KNOW THY SELF”.
