Len Goodman decries "injustice" on DWTS - a metaphor for the human condition?

Dancing Elimination Shocker: "No Justice" as a Favorite Goes Home - E! Online

What Len said,

"We [he specifically said Americans and Brits] like the underdog, but we like justice more, and there is no justice these two being here. It's nonsense,"

goes right to my biggest dislike of "reality" shows - the stupid "voting" factor. Reality TV sends the message that good effort and achievement are meaningless - that everything comes down to manipulation.

Of course that might well be human reality. It's what we act out every Good Friday, shouting "Crucify him!" and condemning the only one who was truly just.
