Creativity = Insanity?

Dopamine System in Highly Creative People Similar to That Seen in Schizophrenics, Study Finds:
High creative skills have been shown to be somewhat more common in people who have mental illness in the family. Creativity is also linked to a slightly higher risk of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Certain psychological traits, such as the ability to make unusual pr bizarre associations are also shared by schizophrenics and healthy, highly creative people. And now the correlation between creativity and mental health has scientific backing.

"We have studied the brain and the dopamine D2 receptors, and have shown that the dopamine system of healthy, highly creative people is similar to that found in people with schizophrenia," says associate professor Fredrik Ullén from Karolinska Institutet's Department of Women's and Children's Health, co-author of the study that appears in the journal PLoS ONE.
 This explains a great deal about certain people: They're only "healthy" because they're functional.

Technological Mesmerization

Technological mesmerization is a useful tool for occultation of economic reality.  It can be especially useful in the generation of spectacle at the expense of those believing themselves to be a majority.  A minority within a minority may always focused upon in an effort to delegitimize the  offending cause or movement.  Kooks love the camera.  You can always find enough of some objectionable idiot to focus upon.  The news comment sections abound with it.  Laziness is easy.

Although often successful, and for that very reason is always exploited to Maximum Advantage in all Things, this approach degrades national cohesion by sowing long term divisiveness for long term gain.  As an end product, something is objectionable to someone, and society therefore writes itself off.  Fragmentation is a failed identity.  Even as it isolates further, people will try otherwise.  Crisis may create real change, but nothing else will.
