Trivial Preoccupation

A clever system of distraction utilized by tyranny, particularly Marxists, that appears as somewhat innocent amusement by its subjects when in reality it is subtle indoctrination. Its entertainment value keeps subjects from independent study and thought while still indoctrinating and more importantly consuming time not spent in producing tribute. Christians should be extolled to recall the words of Charles H Spurgeon, “The mission of amusement produces no conquerors”.
