On of the comments that came o my latest post ”Trumpoline” was this :
I know this was a very long time ago but I couldn’t write till now so I will explain my argument in this post why I think that Media directs the society and doesn’t reflect the society.
My first point is against TV shows and social media – can you name few things that you have and Idea about but actually you have never personally experienced ?
Movies and Media make you know a lot about things you will never experience in your life just think for a second if this things aren’t true means that most of your Ideas are not.
I mean like :
- you think you know Muslims but maybe you don’t have any Muslim friends
- Maybe you are an atheist because of what you hear about the evolution theory but most probably you never red the book
- Maybe you believe in God’s existence cause of what you hear at church but yet you never red the bible yourself .
- Maybe you think that USA is the greatest country in the word yet you never searched the reasons why and saw the statistics yourself
and the list goes on forever.
Media sells you the idea the you need to trust them because they are the experts so you listen to someone who knows how to use logic to sell his idea , charismatic , clever and uses few book references and scientific expressions and BOOM!!! you believe him and start living by his words , ever thought what if he was wrong ?
My second Point is for movies. They are made so well that they make you believe that whatever they present is true . Come on some people believe in Aliens because of movies but yet they never red a book about space.
Haven’t Most of us when we were young tried to do some karate moves after watching a martial arts action movie ?!
wait haven’t the children of today try to dance , wear , talk , act , think , etc… like their favorite movie stars
Is that something you would like your children to do or to learn ?
My third point is about Music and that would be a short one most of the top hits talk about sex, sexual desire, money , power and self love . Imagine that today’s teenagers when they are trying to be romantic they send a song called ” Am in love with the shape of you ” to the girls they love and surprisingly girls find it really romantic.
Girls today learn from songs that if they aren’t sexy they ain’t worth to be loved
Boys learn they if they dont have enough money and power sexy girls will never be interested in them
That’s why always the jerks are more popular.
and of course you must have noticed the sluttier is a pop star the more fans she gets again relating fame with sex and money .
Ask your kids what would they do if they got really rich and it will shock you.
