Please watch the following TED Talk delivered by Alexandre O. Philippe on the topic of pop culture:
He is a believer in the power pop culture has to bring joy and unite people. After watching the talk, please respond by first reacting to his position of pop culture -> do you agree that we should see and uphold pop culture as a positive, unifying force? Why? Do you see any problems or have issues with his assertion? How might pop culture be a negative influence in our world?
Along with reacting to his presentation, you may reflect upon your experience with pop culture and share about one item either current or from the past that either supports the view that pop culture is a positive or that highlights how pop culture may be more negative.
