    No. One of the main purposes of the entertainment industry is Social and Political Commentary. The very first plays, comedy and tragedy, were designed for that purpose. “Entertainment” has always been a political tool; when used by the people it’s a way to communicate ideas and bring about cultural changes, when wielded by the government it’s a means of appeasement and distraction of the people so that those in power remain in power.
