Or, the Spectacle is sustained by the Spectator.

“Screens are powerful technologies that shape our relations with ourselves and the world in subtle but profound ways.
Among those ways is a cultivation of a Spectator’s relationship with reality―we are more likely to “know” and “understand” than to see ourselves as agents with the capacity to change.
The Spectator role demands a paralysis of the action that is required for real social change. We cannot expect a new world to simply “happen” to us―we must create it, and we won’t be able to do so so if we are simply taking pictures of those who are trying to do so.”
