It’s Hard To Have Good Morals With The Media In This Country Running The Show

Do you think that the decline of morals in a society is one of its harbingers of doom?  One of the symptoms of a dying civilization?  I hope that the majority of citizens in this great nation of ours still have morals, even though it doesn’t seem that way after reading the news.

Examples?

Ok, here’s one for you.  A 27 year old Bengals cheerleader named Sarah Jones that had sex with a 17 year while she was his teacher is going to get… what?  Jail time?  A huge fine?  Nope, she’s getting her own reality tv show.

That’s right.  Why?  I imagine it’s because she’s an attractive young woman and sex sells, baby.  Who among America’s tele-holics wouldn’t want to tune into this show?

Unfortunately, it’s just another sign that the country’s morals continue to decline at roughly the same rate as a climbing ratings sweep for the television networks.  I stopped watching tv back around the time of the very first reality tv show that aired on MTV.  I think it was called the “The Real World” or something like that.  I simply couldn’t stomach it.  Regardless, these shows seem to be less and less real as time marches on.

Here’s a question for you:  do these kinds of programs cause the lack of morals and good sense in Americans?  Or does the growing lack of morals and good sense in Americans provide the networks with an opportunity to air this kind of garbage knowing that people will tune in?  It’s kind of a chicken and the egg question.

Or is it something else all together?

Honestly, I get so disgusted by this kind of thing I just want to move to Antarctica sometimes.  I know there are still a lot of good people out there… I just wish they’d get the same airtime as the dirtbags.

What do you think?  Sound off below!

    On our current path, society is certain to go the way of the roman empire…When I stop to look around me and see how different the attitudes of society are from just 25 years ago it really makes it hard to breath. Where are we headed? I can’t imagine that it is anywhere good. Political Correctness has been used as shield to prevent and penalize the moral from calling attention the immoral, and cultivated the “if it feels good , do it ” attitude prevalent among today’s youth, hollywood, alternative lifestyles.

      wolverine6 – Rome is pretty much the comparison I had in mind too. What happens when a society as a whole becomes completely immoral? I don’t think we’re there yet, but as you point out, we’re heading in that direction.

    It’s a culture shift. Believe it or not, Jerry Springer is real life. That kind of stuff happens all day every day across just about every city in America.

    The problem with the media is they a propaganda machine for the government. If they reported the news, then things would be fine.

    The problem with the reality shows is that many people are greedy. People will do anything for free money. A show about a typical person would be boring beyond belief and no one would watch it. It is our attention span that has caused it. We constantly want conflict to keep things interesting. The value of a hard days work is gone now and the me generation exemplifies it. That’s the only reason reality tv thrives.

    The totally different treatment for female teachers (or non teachers) who commit statutory rape than men who commit the exact same act has been going on for awhile. The women are considered to have poor judgement and get probation while the men are considered perverted predators and given maximum sentences.

    I’m not arguing that either is right or wrong but what is good for the goose is not good for the gander.

      Oy!

      You should consider the possibility that the disparity in the enforcement of that particular law is a residual artifact in our culture, from a time before we all convinced ourselves that biology is a social construct with no substantial meaning.

      If we transport ourselves back to… like 1970, we can say that men are aggressive, kind of rugged, and somewhat predatory. We can also say that women are averse to risk, kind of short, not so rugged, and don’t so much relentlessy pursue sexual conquest… in the 70’s.

      Biology was real back then. Juries remember it; they just don’t admit it.

    Jarhead I agree with you regarding trying to separate yourself from the influence which is everywhere & so easily accessible by anyone, irrespective of age, who can use a remote or a computer mouse.

    I do not own a TV or any sort of MSM access other than Internet access mainly because I hate commercials & would rather control the speed at which I get the information. BUT, the Internet is potentially far worse than MSM because of the lack of censoring when you barely get off of the main, beaten path.

    Today’s publicly accepted viewing is tomorrow’s decline in morals & values. Pretty soon the NFL cheerleaders will be wearing 2 circle bandaids & a cork for their cheering outfit …

    Like Adam said above, yesterday’s Jerry Springer shows, while seeming totally outrageous is not so surprising today.

    To answer your question, I believe the Internet is responsible for the rapid decline of morality because it is uncensored. Facebook is a prime example – zillions of users across the world & you can post most anything you want & under the guise of being “friends”. You can be a complete lunatic or live some fantasy life & post it – there is NO accountability. It is like living a Walter Mitty life only now, we can dupe others with the magic of today’s technology. (Nothing personal Yoda *wink, wink*)

    As for me, I don’t Facebook & insulate myself from the crap out there for the most part & very carefully watch what my 7 year old does & plant seeds with my older, post 18 year old kids.

    One last thing I have found very important is my involvement with church & the study of the Bible but even church selection is very important too. Sometimes, pastors who are as human & frail as the rest of society, can get way off in personal agendas & that ain’t good in my opinion.

    Although details are not explained in todays detail, the context of how our society has evolved was written about thousands of years before & people for many, many years thought it was impossible for people to get this far off base & thusly thought the Bible was mythical in many ways. However, it does seem to be proving the test of time.

    I did not grow up as a Christian in fact, I was quite the opposite – who needs God when you can do it yourself? One day I realized that there has to be more to life than what I saw & experienced.

    I entered a church with a very high degree of skepticism & was determined to eliminate the God option & carry on with my life. The deeper I dug, the greater the proof of Him & the relevance. Today in my opinion & 30 years later , there is no other option.

    Morals are like a lot of things , they need to be taught in the home for one . The other thing is , and why crime and corruption is so bad is simply that if there are no consequences for your actions ……there is no motivation to do the right thing . Look at us vs. say muslims , thats an extreme example but you will find that some things in muslim culture are much less than in our culture because the penalties are so severe . just sayin

      I agree with T.R., morals need to be taught at home when children are young. Blaming MSM for declining morals is like blaming guns for violence in my opinion. We all have to be responsible enough to teach our children what we think is right and stop blaming MSM, video games, or music.

          Definitely count me in this camp. A lot of ‘parents’ (if you can call them that) these days want to just plop their spawn in front of the almighty babysitter box (be it TV, Computer, or otherwise) and be done with it.

          There’s more to parenting than tossing a pb&J sandwich in front of a kid three times a day. I also don’t think that religion has much to do with morality either, it’s really up to the parents to raise their kids properly.

      First off, Obama did NOT create the economic mess we are in & to believe so is utter stupidity. He inherited the mess without question. The downward spiral began as early as the beginning of 2006 & had such a head of steam at that point that it was impossible to stop the crash by anybody.

      The US economy is the largest in the world & thinking it can be turned on a dime is extremely naive at best.

      Next, he is not a dictator, nor is our democratic government set up as one so, in order for our country to go into the scare tactic list you have listed, it takes much agreement. The problem with people like you Yoda is you do not think things through rather, you surface react to things & follow it. You never thing analytically & without bias what is the cause of such issues. You are merely a court jester.

      I’ve read as much of your blog as I could stomach & it is incredibly obvious you do not know much for being a supposed “expert”. You are just another sensationalist who wants his 15 minutes by blasting out messages of fear & it is so easy to get a following because some people do not wake up enough to think.

      Anyone who knows their ass from a hot rock knows you do NOT focus upon the fear & remain solution oriented. That is the only way to navigate through any difficult situation with success.

      Write on Yoda, you are exposing yourself more & more for the myopathy from which you operate. Amazing that you really don’t get it, do you?

      You can’t have Muslim communists either, since there is a prohibition on armed religions in the First International.

Not to mention that I think he’s developed a taste for head-crackin, badassedness these days. Dude’s all about assassinating people.

    > do these kinds of programs cause the lack of morals and good sense in Americans?

    Some what. Generally it fills a hole left by an absence of God, so people watch it, which in turn drives ratings. Something fills the hole. This is why they had to remove God and the Bible from the schools and history.

    Sometimes it is intentional propaganda and stinging.

    I have watched many children’s programs on PBS go from entertaining and somewhat secular, to full blown improper and nasty. Sesame Street and the muppets use to be wonderful shows and we even went to the PA park a few times. Now it is worthless and Elmo is having sex with under aged boys.

    I use to think the decline was because they ran out of ideas, but, it follows a set pattern on even the cable networks. Some go way over such as the Simpsons on Fox mocking God and values. While others such as Cyber Chase on PBS still manage to bring sex into it with kissing and dating, when that is not how the show started out. Same with Arthur. Same with Code Lyoko. Others such as Fishhooks degenerate quickly and totally within a short time, I made my kids stop watching after they devoted a whole episode to a OMG song. Catchy theme song though.

    It is the sting of the scorpion from Revelations, it turns people to mush from within before they suck you dry.

    For adult shows, there probably is not a more obvious example then Dr. Who. It use to be a great BBC show. Then Fox perverted it when they got their hands on it and then when the BBC started the new series after Fox, not only did they destroy all the previous work, on the 1st new doctor they end the series with him causally French kissing a bi-sexual guy. I don’t know how much further it degenerated after that.

    I thought I would watch one episode of Torchwood since I never watched it before, same thing.

    American Pickers and Pawn Stars started off nice, then the episodes started to be filled with using the Lords name in vain, among other things. So, we no longer watch them either.

    You are suppose to get hooked and then desensitised to the corruption.

      Most shows are written & created by minds far more intelligent than you & they know the exact subtleties that creates the addition & laces in their agenda driven messages.

      You said – “It is the sting of the scorpion from Revelations”

      It is the Book of Revelation (John’s singular revelation) not revelations – a very common mistake. Just open your Bible to the last book for reference & to see if I am correct. I am a big fan of Acts 17:11 …..

    I hardly watched TV during the 1990s as i was working thru college, but remember hearing the “B” word used as a matter of fact on friends and watching the reruns I have realized it was a pretty down the drain with society show. I mean, it was mostly sex, living together, having kids without marriage and gay marriage; those things werent the norm in the 1980s; but theyre the norm now.

    Now, that the US looks to completely turned away from anything traditional and GOD fearing, I wonder if I’m a sucker for not joining and question why I shouldn’t, unfortunately for my immediate gratification; I am still GOD-fearing.

    Very rarely will I allow my children watch TV without me.

    What people count as relaxation, I count as research.

    A good example would be the Checkers ads. Very big “thing” in GA and my black neighbors loved eating there, it is so hip. Then I had them record a commercial, then I came over with a frame by frame version and showed them the subliminal messages and images buried in the commercial that flashed on for a 1/2 a second through out coupled with the words. Then I asked him is this really what you want your Christian daughter to sing.

    Ignoring the world does not make it go away. Educating people, especially family and neighbors about the corruption can only happen if you know what goes on about them. Same as you can preach all about people changing their ways and doing the right thing, but, if you do not visit a prison and sit face to face with a killer or rapist and talk to them in their world, fat chance of pulling their bacon out of the fire or having them change their ways once released.

      Personally, I do not watch or own a TV because I’d rather not expose myself to the darkness. I don’t ignore the world, I just don’t care about it because it is going to move in the direction it is going with or without me.

      I have a Masters in a very specialized area of linguistics, have done tons of research since & can tell you, you will miss 90% of the negative influence being put out today. The science for it has gotten so deep, exacting, highly complicated & laces many other vehicles such as sight, color, inflection, specific word equations, people types, regional beliefs, types of weather & so much more that to unwind it is extremely difficult because it can easily be double messaged.

      The ONLY thing to do is to begin & end with the Bible. While you sit & try to decipher those hidden messages, a thousand more hit the world. You got to let it go, address the incredibly obvious ones for what they are – only – but concentrate on the good news of Jesus.

      You said :

      “if you do not visit a prison and sit face to face with a killer or rapist and talk to them in their world, fat chance of pulling their bacon out of the fire or having them change their ways once released.”

      Christians, as I know it, are supposed to plant the seeds & water in some cases but it is God who provides the light & does the harvesting. I have been face to face with inmates (no glass or bars between us) in some of the hardest prisons in California & their world is not prison, it’s the personal spiritual battle.

      Going toe to toe is a fools game – relate yes, but the individual is the one who MUST change his/her heart to God & has little to do with their imprisonment, with or without bars. What happened to the guard that was chained to Paul? He simply preached the Gospel irrespective of the condition & confinement & the guard got it. I think you need to understand the difference between your job & God’s job.

      Quite frankly, the “research” you do & the postulates you form, creates paranoia because most of it is probably in err or falls way short AND moves people away from the Bible. It is a spiritual battle that you will lose, guaranteed if you focus there. You cannot win & must rise above it or get independent of it – that is paramount. Look at the life & teachings of Jesus, He rarely went toe to toe & when He did He asked questions & told parables.

    Quite frankly your opinion is not God’s word, of that I am sure. Because despite your education you are long on man’s word and short on the Bible.

    With all you posted, you did not disprove this at all using God’s word.

      I do not own a TV nor do I watch anything popular or mainstream. Why? Because what I have learned is it chock-full of the lies & deceptions you are geared towards trying to discover & expose. They are literally everywhere, some so subtle that you/me do not catch it until the inoculation has completed as in your example of the Checkers advertisement. Point being, you would have never been exposed if you hadn’t watched it, get it?

      I do not see the point of battling the deception because that keeps you lost & in the enemy’s game thus, making them the victor. You may win a skirmish here & there but will never win the battle let alone the war – that is the fool’s game.

      I’ve read much on your blog & you seem to like to draw a line, rather a cavern in the sand – it has a ‘my way or eternal damnation’ flavor about it. Your letter to Mitt Romney with its instruction in how to nail or defeat Obama was a little weird, disjointed & way out of context. You were trying to fight deception with deception, both incredibly obvious. That is what my education taught me to see so clearly – the tone & underlying thought behind the words.

      Next my point was to begin & end with the Bible, disregard the world so to speak. The Bible is wisdom well beyond man’s viewpoints but, understandably many do not truly get that as they try to compare or try to put the world to it but it does not work. The Bible sits independent of everything & is like a map & instruction of life. While you contended once that it (Bible) is not complex, I disagree because it emanates from God, not man therefore complex.

      While I sight many direct references to scripture & turn the conversation back to the Bible, which I do almost every time, and take my focus off of the world’s opinion i.e. the example of Paul in prison in the second to last paragraph in my last comment, I disagree I am long on man’s word. However, that is a very interesting & contradicting observation on your part & no surprise as it follows your pattern – you want to believe YOU are always right.

      I am not foolish enough to believe that my words can break this side of pride & righteousness you demonstrate, I merely attempt to point out the obvious flaws in your approach that many are not willing to do & base it on logic, relative reason & Biblical instruction & context.

      My only hope is that you will discover that the Bible is not a WMD & that we are to be more like Jesus than anyone or anything else. Remember, He brought light to darkness & did not use a club to make His points.
