Bread and games
Seems like not much has changed since Juvenal said this. The bread was upgraded to unhealthy mixtures of salt/sugar/fat that make you crave for more, and the games have indeed become a true plural - enabling one to consume them at almost any hour of the day. The thing is, it's not necessarily 'them' who are trying to 'control' you; it's also the easier choice of an individual - to consume, to escape, and not be 'bothered' with what's really happening in his town/city/country/world. #sunday-blues
This is why I write these 'daily thoughts' posts.
