    People work their pointless monkeyspank little jobs then come home.  TV turns on, brain turns off.  Repeat.

    We have an unprecedented level of access to news nowadays.  One pet theory of mine is that constant exposure to television and fiction in general has implanted a strong tendency to passivity in many people.  We see and read horrible things, but as it's mostly fake, the response is to sit back and see what happens next.  When it's real, inertia kicks in, and we sit back and wait for further developments.  

    Poorly expressed, not thought out thoroughly, but I might be onto something there.  Comments appreciated.

    They see me trollin'. They hatin'
