The thing is, and I speak for myself only on this, the show is not a microcosm of Society at large .. if that were so, then lying, stealing, deception and general chicanery would be the order of the day for the Society at large .. so, constantly trumpeting that as a draw for the show is just plain absurd and wrong .. but, I guess it sounds nice, or at least somebody on the Production side thinks it sounds nice ..
Now, "Outwit, Outplay, Outlast" seems to continue to devolve to "use any means at your disposal to carry forth your agenda" .. the lack of any degree of Honor, which has been exhibited in the past, is or has flown out the window .. and we, as the viewing fans, are supposed to chalk that up to "a Reflection of Society" ..
It's a game where contestants have, in many cases in the past, made it a point to state "I would never be this way in real life, but this is a Game .. "
Oddball: Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
