Can a constantly reiterated “wake up you idiots?” be called a philosophy ?

As the computer-satellite matrix matured, passing from anti-environment to environment, it appears that McLuhan saw that techno-cultural evolution had entered a new phase that would remain relatively constant and stable (albeit chaotically so), even with the advent of new technologies like instant replay. When everything is in flux and there is nothing but revolution, there is “no difference that makes a difference,” nothing but stasis and zero-gradient culture. In the face of a situation that either could not be satirized, or had made satire mostly useless, McLuhan registers that a new program is needed.
