Pop Culture: On SAPS, sociopaths and Khuli Chana

Why do we as a society place people on pedestals then resent them?
Do we as a society create celebrities not just to love them or celebrate their work, but to have a common entity to hate, judge and critique with less guilt because hey, you don’t know them and you’re not the only one doing it?

One only has to look at the comments on articles regarding tragedy befalling others, any celebrity’s mentions or read Twitter discussions to know that in many people’s minds, there’s a certain nonchalance that they regard human life with, especially when it comes to celebrities.

As we become more immersed in pop culture, the Haves and Have Nots and Us VS Them,separating the average from those we deem extraordinary, are we also moving further from understanding empathy and altruism?
