Thirty years ago popular culture treated issues which were genuinely interesting and relevant, such as the struggle against authoritarian culture and dark sarcasm in the education system. Yes, that’s from Pink Floyd’s The Wall. Today’s hot topics are much less about the fundamental aspects of modern life. Instead, we discuss endlessly if there is too much migration (who gets to decide that, anyway?), islamic terrorism and the morality of benefit claimants. Quite sad if you think about it.
