Knowing Others & Being Known by Them...

A problem with society:

We want information instead of answers because that way we don't have to ask anybody any questions. We just spend our time pretending to know things instead of getting to know one another.

This is why we love entertainment & celebrity. We want to know about people without having to know them. We want to be famous so people can know about us without actually knowing us. We still like the "idea" of people so we love watching fictional characters & even having them be a primary topic of conversation but we don't like actually relating to people. So we live in a synthetic world where we know without knowing & are known without being known.
