The Cult of Celebrity Poses a Significant Threat to our Deteriorating Societal infrastructure

"The Cult of Celebrity is supported by an aggressive brainwash machine promoting the wrong heroes in the face of our stressed infrastructure. For example, in a film about a brilliant mathematician, we are trained to believe that the actor is the proper icon. Or in the case of a beautiful song about human rights, we are conditioned to venerate the performer. The net result: shortages of great mathematicians, shortages of social activists, but no lack of entertainment celebrities posing as gods."

We need to resurrect neglected heroes in our society in order to inspire our youth to pursue vocations (e.g., nursing) now in crisis.

Billionaire Philanthropist is an Oxymoron
