Are We Voyeurs?

We are watching the second season of "Downton Abbey" with all the adventures and misadventures, all the in-touchedness and out-of-touchedness of the various folk, all the tragedies and joys, and the sadly amusing thought-to-be-tragedies (because they are out of touch), etc, etc, etc, and at the end of the DVD last night, I found myself wondering if we are voyeurs, and is not our culture today voyeuristic in all of our media consumption? We spend an awful lot of time, today, watching other people's lives. And the really strange part of it is that many of them are not even real!

There are implications here, I'm certain of it.

Just something to think about.
