Rap, porn, smartphones, lack of sleep, curiosity, interest, even contempt for "smart things" ... This is where we are: The hanounaisation of society.
Pascal already dealt with the question in the 17th century.
"This is all that men have been able to invent to make themselves happy. And those who make philosophers of it and who believe that the world is very unreasonable to spend all day chasing after a hare that they would not want to have bought, hardly know our nature. This hare would not guarantee us from the sight of death and the miseries that divert us from it, but hunting guarantees it.
And so, when one reproaches them that what they seek with so much ardor could not satisfy them, if they answered as they should do if they thought well about it, that they seek in that only an occupation. violent and impetuous that distracts them from thinking of themselves and that is why they offer themselves an attractive object which charms and attracts them with ardor, they would leave their adversaries without repeating. "
When people are distracted and let go of their instincts, for the most part they choose it because they are already looking for it. In the time of the Enlightenment one could still believe that education would light up, and we see today that despite compulsory schooling, people still indulge in their instincts and distracting pleasures, video games, drugs, Internet or shows of all kinds. So either we make a totalitarian society which constrains these instincts and prevents temptation, but then the remedy will be worse than the evil, or we admit that people make their own misfortune (if we see it as such), we alert them but they do what they want, and that's the current situation.
