tragedy as entertainment

Tragedy, in all of its forms, exists for historians, journalists, actors and playwrights. Scholars and dramatists study these things and attempt to learn and possibly teach us more about the tragic and how to avoid the pitfalls of tragedy.  We soak up the tragic as a lesson and pass these things down from generation to generation if the tragedy merits. So that which truly is tragic, ultimately we learn from. Entertainment comes in many forms. Entertainment can be overpowering and oppressive; sometimes you cannot escape what entertains you:

en·ter·tain·ment

 noun \ˌen-tər-ˈtān-mənt\

So, What’s the point?

Not all entertainment is sunshine and rainbows; Sometimes it is a prison.

Someone may be entertaining you with death to keep you in paralysis.

Be careful with how you allow yourself to be entertained.
