People like to harp on the fact entertainment doesn’t matter—it’s just a book, it’s just a tv show, it’s just a game! I think this is an irresponsible viewpoint. If entertainment really doesn’t matter, we’d all be living as lonely woods-people only adhering to our basic needs of food-shelter-clothing, because it is only when those basic needs are met we seek entertainment to actually cope with actually living day to day in this crazy, meaningless, chaotic world. Entertainment is how we relate to experiences that are not directly ours. We can do that by enjoying one another’s company, or we can do that by experiencing stories. It is how we can teach people to open up to viewpoints that are not theirs. And it is how we stimulate our imaginations.
