Normalizing Evil

Posted on Friday, March 11th, 2022

Dave!I've been watching a lot of these docu-series about the rise and fall of powerful people.

Those who obtain sudden wealth by serendipitous circumstance but then fall because they weren't smart about maintaining their money I actually feel kinda sad for. I mean, that's the dream for all of us, right? Come into some money? Alas, if you're not born into money, then you can't really be blamed for not knowing how to keep your wealth because you usually have to do some sketchy shit that they're just not prepared to do. But these people are villainized and we are made to think they're stupid.

Those who obtain sudden wealth by devious means or have generational wealth get treated very differently by these docu-series when they fall. They are humanized and we're made to feel sorry for them.

I've been thinking about this a lot lately as I watch the news.

Which is essentially a never-ending docu-series at this point.

Television has always been a reflection of reality. This is no different.
