La televisión digital era magia. Internet también. Incluso el coche del padre, la maquina con la que antes los chicos conseguían dominar por primera vez el mundo físico, ahora la controlaba un ordenador. El diagnostico de un fallo no implicaba ponerse a desmontar un motor y pringarse de aceite. En el concesionario, el coche se enchufaba a otro ordenador impenetrable.Si al mobiliario técnico de la vida de Zach le pasaba algo —y en estos días las máquinas no chisporrotean encima de uno ni empiezan a soltar extraños bufidos ni se ponen a chillar—, a él nunca se le pasaría por la cabeza la idea de arreglarlo con sus propias manos. Para esas cosas había brujos, aunque el concepto mismo de reparación ya se había vuelto arcano; mucho más probable era ir a comprarse otra máquina que trabajaba mágicamente y que luego, mágicamente también, dejaba de funcionar.En conjunto, la especie humana estaba volviéndose cada vez más autoritaria en lo tocante a los mecanismos del universo. Individualmente, la experiencia de la mayoría eran una impotencia y una falta de comprensión flagrantes. La gente vivía en un mundo de supersticiones. Se fiaba del vudú, de hechizos y fetiches, de bolas de cristal cuyos caprichos no se podían manejar pero sin los cuales el gobierno de la vida cotidiana se paralizaba. La fe en que el ordenador se encendería una vez más y haría lo que se le pedía tenía un tinte religioso más que racional. Cuando la pantalla se oscurecía, los dioses estaban enfadados.
The television commercial has mounted the most serious assault on capitalist ideology since the publication of Das Kapital. To understand why, we must remind ourselves that capitalism, like science and liberal democracy, was an outgrowth of the Enlightenment. Its principal theorists, even its most prosperous practitioners, believed capitalism to be based on the idea that both buyer and seller are sufficiently mature, well informed and reasonable to engage in transactions of mutual self-interest. If greed was taken to be the fuel of the capitalist engine, the surely rationality was the driver. The theory states, in part, that competition in the marketplace requires that the buyer not only knows what is good for him but also what is good. If the seller produces nothing of value, as determined by a rational marketplace, then he loses out. It is the assumption of rationality among buyers that spurs competitors to become winners, and winners to keep on winning. Where it is assumed that a buyer is unable to make rational decisions, laws are passed to invalidate transactions, as, for example, those which prohibit children from making contracts...Of course, the practice of capitalism has its contradictions...But television commercials make hash of it...By substituting images for claims, the pictorial commercial made emotional appeal, not tests of truth, the basis of consumer decisions. The distance between rationality and advertising is now so wide that it is difficult to remember that there once existed a connection between them. Today, on television commercials, propositions are as scarce as unattractive people. The truth or falsity of an advertiser's claim is simply not an issue. A McDonald's commercial, for example, is not a series of testable, logically ordered assertions. It is a drama--a mythology, if you will--of handsome people selling, buying and eating hamburgers, and being driven to near ecstasy by their good fortune. No claim are made, except those the viewer projects onto or infers from the drama. One can like or dislike a television commercial, of course. But one cannot refute it.
