Vitorino Castro Basic Comp. 11-6-07 “Voting Democracy Off the Island” I. Define *Gladiatorial- Relating to Gladiators, pleasing to one but not to another. Watching reality shows with “Average Joes” Is much more pleasing that watching some actor on TV. *Flinty- Inflexible, Showing no emotion. If you are showing emotion you become vulnerable so if you show no emotion it’s easier for you to win the game. *Zero-sum- A place where one wins, but in order to win means someone has to lose. *Agitprop- Political propaganda The Entertainment industry has a little bit of political propaganda as hidden messages in some of their work. *Zeitgeist- The ideas prevalent in a period and place. (Literature, Religion) *Mendacious- Having lied in the past or prone to habitual lying. When someone comes onto a show and projects this image of who they are, we tend to flip out when the media exposes them as someone different do to past lies. *Commodify- To change, or become one with another.
