In 1937 the mass observation movement started in the UK, The reasoning behind this was to revel how society really was by looking on people behaviors. Later and after the war it moved toward looking at commercial side of observation or research and the moment slowly died out. But the act of people watching still exist, but now the main activity is moved to peoples social media feed and TV. In 2005 20% is consuming fast food but 90% are using social media.

To often there are TV Shows that are apparently there to educate people about the dangers about things like bad health, social issues or life style, but if you look at them they exist to normalizing judgment on the basis at entertainment. As Foucault said “The power of the norm appears through the disciplines. (page 183)”

Show like the UK shows “Benefits Street” “Honey we are Killing the Kids” and “ The Jeremy Kyle Show” are using people as basis for entertainment With TV show determine the norm, people will act that what they see in TV as reality.

The old societies of sovereignty made use of simple machines – levels and pulley, clocks; but the recent disciplinary societies equipped themselves with machines involving energy, with the passive danger of entropy and the active danger of sabotage; the societies of control operate with machines of a third type, computers, whose passive danger is jamming and whose active one is piracy and the introduction of virus. “The power of the norm appears through the disciplines. Like surveillance and with it, normalizing becomes one the greats instruments of power at the end of the classic age” (page 183)

In the UK Tv-series Black Mirror we get to know the character Waldo in one of the episodes. Waldo is computer puppet made by the comedian and are a comic relief that exist on a tv show.

It all aspire that the anti political on becomes the politicians. A real life person not that that dissimilar is Russell Brand with is outgoing and rebel persona, a person that strongly agains politics but has turn him self as a politicians and front man for the disillusioned groups in society.
