The Great Trivializer of Our Lives

I was looking through old stuff today, and I found this clipped quote about/of Arthur Miller (I think I got this from the Chicago Tribune Magazine):

In his newest play, he told Dowling, he was trying to express the cruel absurdiities of our period, especially the impact of TV. Because I have come to believe that television is the great trivilzer of our lives.” Applause, a lot of it. “There’s something about that form that reduces everything to powder. I’ve watched it with more and more horror as time goest by, but also laughter, befcause it’s so pretentious.” Laughter, a lot of it.
