17. We should add into that the failure of "leaders" who could use their power for good, but


instead use it to enrich themselves.

People might flock to their shows, but most never use the gifts they are given to promote messages of harmony, togetherness, cooperation. They have the perfect platform, they have the listener's rapt attention, and use it to sell, as you said, fistfights, car chases, sex, etc.

That goes up and down the chain, and includes "we the people" who don't demand better.
