Reading this article has opened my eyes to the "blue-collar" sit-coms that once dominated the television. I say this because after truly thinking about the popular shows over the years, it becomes more evident that there was indeed a plan to recreate the working class males. No coincidence. Like Butsch said in the reading, these working class characters were portrayed as idiots who needed supervision. Only thing worse than this is how popular these shows were and that people may have accepted it. There are dozens of other implications here but I was impressed with Butch's ability to break this entire notion down into separate parts. Doing this made it easier to see the bigger picture. Great illustration!
