There was a recent university study that spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on something we already knew. But since ‘we the people’ already know the government likes to spend money on something it doesn’t need to, it is no wonder the results of the study, (..”that adults watching reality shows desensitizes them to social interaction that is inherently stupid by nature”), is something we already know. *Writers note, I believe the study used the word inane instead of stupid, I just dubbed down the word so we knuckle daggers in the fly over states would understand.
We see daily the increased violence and lowered moral values that is happening all around us and some blame it on guns, the bad economy or failure of our schools. Wake up people…. for decades now our television and movies have been glorifying violence and immorality. If you add in the fact that we as parents have had less and less time to spend around our children showing them right from wrong we are definitely beginning to see the results.
Today’s high tech game manufactures are working overtime to produce ever more and more violent games for children to play, and we are told it has no effect on them. I say like the university study it has desensitized them to real life violence. Like the two youths in Oklahoma who killed a man and when asked why they did it said, ‘because we were bored’. We do not need a study to know that when we see, everyday on TV, young woman dressing like hookers and having casual sex that our children will emulate that dress and action because they think its on TV so it OK.
We as parents do not stand a chance trying to have our kids grow up with a sense of morality and a aversion to violence when they have such unlimited access to the crap one finds on the internet, Facebook, Twitter and even text’s from their friends in school. How when we have allowed video games to get ever more violent cane we expect it to have no effect. Then we remove any sense of God or morality from the home, school and our government……what did we expect to get in return?
They used to have compounds for deprogramming cult members and I am thinking of building some cabins out here where there is no link to the cyber world, phone service or TV. At the same time making each client immerse themselves in a study of our founding fathers principles and the many different religions of the world.
However we know that the black helicopters would soon swoop down
because they would say I am promoting child abuse….
