It's a given that the new TV show 'Empire' will flaunt excess wealth, materialism, corporatism, consumption and vanity. As usual, they will do so with no regard for the wake of destruction left behind. In particular, the already obscene and oppressive concentration of wealth and resources. This is the very nature of the music industry and most of it's popular representatives regardless of genre. You name the well known performer. They epitomize all of it.
Of course, like every other TV show, each segment will be written, directed and broadcast not only to entertain but also to plug commercial affiliates and corporate partners. One of which in particular should never be promoted to a mass audience.
I'll cut to the chase.
Aside from utterly predictable plugs for electronic gadgets, travel destinations and high fashion, each and every episode of Empire, or at the VERY least three out of every four, will plug the more profitable elements of commercial healthcare intervention. In particular, pharmaceuticals, medical testing, pregnancy and surgery. High end dental work may be plugged as well. With each plug, there will be a commercial brainwash plot intended to dumb down, scare or insult those who don't believe in frequent or excessive healthcare intervention. These plots have become more and more calculated in recent years.
I fully expect 'Empire' to push the hypochondriac 'drug and doctor' envelope a little further thereby driving the already obscene cost of healthcare even higher and the share of GDP, already at a staggering 17%, even greater.
The producers of these shows will not be happy until the masses are too stupid to do anything but watch, breathe, buy product and run to the nearest hospital or pharmacy.
I suggest that we resist their corrupt influence and send a strong anti-commercial message to the sponsors of 'Empire'.
