HOLLYWOOD – Entourage star Adrian Grenier made a bold statement on 9/11 14th anniversary.
“RIP the 2,996 Americans who died in 9/11. RIP the 1,455,590 innocent Iraqis who died during the US invasion for something they didn’t do,” the actor stated.
And he chose to make his statement on a day that still has a tremendous amount of sensitivity. And he didn’t even have one character for every life that was lost. How did he think he was able to have a sensible discussion about a real issue. He has to discuss it at length. And if people aren’t willing to do that than all the signs that point that we are no longer a democracy and are an oligarchy are true.
American have been so condition towards little digestible pieces of news to process in a short period of time. We aren’t allowing ourselves to expound on topics and issues because techology is pushing us towards brevity.
People don’t want to read long winded pieces that is thought provoking. They want short tidbits that they read and say, “I got it” and move forward. Adrain chose a 140 character statement over writing a truly thought provoking piece.
