بهترین تلویزیون، تلویزیونی است که سوخته باشد…

داستان اسب تروا را شاید خوانده باشی. میگویند یونانیها پس از ده سال محاصره‌ بی نتیجه تروا، اسبی بسیار بزرگ از چوب ساختند و بر دروازه شهر رها کردند و به سرزمین خود بازگشتند. ساکنان تروا، اسب را همچون غنیمتی ارزشمند، با خود به میدان اصلی شهر بردند و در پای آن به رقص و پایکوبی پرداختند. شباهنگام که مردم، سرمست از شراب و پیروزی، بر زمین افتاده و خوابیده بودند، سربازان یونانی از درون شکم آن اسب بزرگ بیرون آمدند و شهر را تسخیر کردند.

داستان اسب تروا، داستان هزاران سال پیش است.

اما اسب‌های تروا، هنوز هستند و به قلمرو شخصی مردم وارد می‌شوند.

من یکی از این اسبهای تروا را پانزده سال است که از خانه بیرون رانده‌ام. این وسیله وحشتناک، تلویزیون نام دارد.

تلویزیون ابزار نفوذ گروه‌های خاص، در مغز مردم است. جالب آنکه این اسب تروا را خود می‌خریم و خود هزینه‌اش را می‌دهیم و زمانی که آن را وارد خانه کردیم، مانند مردم تروا، پیروزمندانه ورودش را جشن می‌گیریم. غافل از آنکه جشن اصلی، در محفلی دیگر و برای افرادی دیگر، برپاست.

تلویزیون، تمام ساعتهای خالی تو را پر می‌کند. تمام ساعتهای زیبا و عمیقی که می‌توانست با خیره شدن به شعله‌ی آرام یک شمع سپری شود، یا با غرق شدن در نوای بهشتی یک قطعه موسیقی، غنی شود، بر پای پنجره‌ای مجازی گذشت که – لااقل در کشور ما – به دنیای واقعی باز نمیشود!

تلویزیون، به تو مردمی را نشان میدهد که همسایه ی تو نیستند، نظراتی که نظرات مردم تو نیست، دغدغه‌هایی که دغدغه‌های تو نیست و نباید باشد. سلیقه‌ای که سلیقه‌ی من و تو نیست. رویاهایی که رویاهای من و تو نیست و در یک کلام، تو را به یک بیمار چندشخصیتی تبدیل می‌کند: یک شخصیت تو، چیزی است که می‌فهمی و منطقت می‌گوید و پدرت، به عنوان حاصل عمری از تجربه، خیرخواهانه پیش رویت قرار میدهد و شخصیت دیگر، خواسته‌ها و رویاها و ارزش‌ها و جامعه‌، نه «آنچنانکه باید باشد» بلکه «آنچنانکه میخواهند باشد».

شاید مدرسه هرگز به تو نگوید. چون مدرسه‌ات را هم همانها میگردانند که این اسب تروای داخل خانه را.

اما بگذار به تو بگویم که دوران «تزریق یک جانبه‌ی عقیده» پایان یافته است: دورانی که تو دکمه‌ای را فشار دهی و گروهی دیگر،  بتوانند از هفت سوراخ مختلف، اصول خود را در مغز تو – با همان ترتیب و تقدم که خود میخواهند – تزریق کنند!

هرگز هیچ دکمه‌ای را بر هیچ وسیله‌ اطلاع‌رسانی فشار نده، جز ‌آنکه به این اطمینان رسیده باشی که همان اندازه که آنها میتوانند خواسته‌هایشان را به تو تحمیل کنند، تو نیز میتوانی رویاها و انتظاراتت را به آنها تزریق کنی.

عصر تلویزیون به پایان رسیده است. عصر داستانهای تکراری. عصر دانشگاه اجباری. عصر پنجره‌ای که به هیچ جا باز نمیشود. عصر دغدغه‌های زرد. عصر دخترانی که مهمترین رویای زندگیشان انتخاب از میان دو گزینه برای ازدواج است. عصر مشتهای گره کرده. عصر جامعه‌ای که در برابر دوربین همه یکصدا یک حرف میزنند و در پشت دوربین، خود به هزار فرقه تقسیم می‌شوند. عصر حرف‌های قدیمی. عصر رویاهای سوخته. عصر دنیای بسته. عصر سوزاندن وقت تفکر تو، به نفع کسانی که فکر کردنت، هرگز منافع آنها را تامین نمیکند.

مراقب اسب تروا باش. تو کامپیوتر و اینترنت داری. رسانه‌هایی که به تو، مانند هر انسان دیگری حق حرف زدن و رابطه ی دوجانبه میدهند. قدر آنها را بدان.

پدرت امروز، با تمام وجود باور دارد که بهترین تلویزیون، تلویزیونی است که سوخته باشد…
