We're All Just Victims of Popular Culture

We live in a modern world where each personality is defined and influenced, whether intentionally or not, by the aesthetic magnificence of our popular culture phenomenon.

The beauty transmitted via mediums such as film, music, literature and art can appear both enchantingly captivating and overwhelmingly challenging.

Nothing, not even yourself, is entirely as it seems.

'Very commonly substances are criminalised because they're associated with what's called the dangerous classes, you know, poor people, or working people.… Actually, the peak of marijuana use was as I said, in the seventies, but that was rich kids, so you don't throw them in jail. And then it got seriously criminalised, you know, you really throw people in jail for it, when it was poor people.'

— Noam Chomsky  [1999]
