Seminar: Can entertainment ruin society?

Guiding questions: Can entertainment ruin society? Can entertainment uplift and improve society? Provoke change? What's considered "entertainment"? Is entertainment merely escapism, or is it only entertainment if it is "art" or "educational"? Are some forms of entertainment more noble than others? What does entertainment reveal about society?

Refer to the texts "Loose Ends" and "Television Addiction" in The McGraw-Hill Reader as well as current events "Video Games are Good For Kids" and "Study Finds Television Does Not Lower Test Scores" to substantiate your opinions in addition to your observations and personal experiences.
