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 .
  • ChartsMaybe 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 .

That shouldn’t me a normal thing our children dance the same way .

Ask your kids what would they do if they got really rich and it will shock you.

Branding and the way it affects humanity

The Brand is in everything in your life your car , cloth , TV , phone and everything you use has a brand but did you ever stop and think what that is , does this make any sense ? does it really make a difference ? does it affects us ?

The way I see it is that branding was originally created to make the buyer know the manufacturer and some products were better than others so some brands started to have a value of their own that’s fair they produce better products so they deserve to sell more and be more valuable but the problem is the way branding is used today , it is used to identify us not to identify the product we buy, it is used to show our quality not the quality of the product and from here it affects all human beings and humanity and in this article I will try to explain how.

How the system of the world works makes money a very important thing as with it we can get our needs but yet with it we can be controlled as I talked about in my article The System of the World – Money  earlier , that system caused us to judge people with how much money they have cause we have been taught ( Programmed ) that the ones who are richer are more powerful , happier ( even if they are not happier but it always better to cry in a Ferrari ) , more successful and special, might be true for some and yet not for others  I mean drug dealers are wealthy right ? but anyway if you have money things become easier because people think like that , Imagine this you get to a club riding a cheap used car and wearing something that doesn’t cost much money – what are the chances of you getting in imagine going with a Ferrari well all doors will open .

Ferrari is a brand I guess you already know what am about tho say next , the Brand was created to identify  the product but it used to identify the person cause it shows your status , it gains you respect from the people who were taught – programmed – to respect the wealthy. So the one who has a Ferrari is not buying it because it is the fastest car ever , he buys it because it show us how much money he has so it gains him that respect he buys the car as a way to communicate with the rest of us that he can afford to have a Ferrari  and trust me company’s know that and they are using it very well . You can put what I say to the test look up the options available in any normal car and a Ferrari , you will find a lot of differences many things that a Ferrari can do a normal car can’t but if you are not living in a country that doesn’t have any traffic regulations and you are a very good driver you wont use any of this options and most of the Ferrari owners aren’t . Think with the same logic on any of the brands and you will see how it really fits ( the brands you will find that this logic doesn’t fit them it only means that they didn’t succeed to get there ).

The bigger problem that this culture is now presented in movies ,songs , TV shows and social media company’s are doing their best to make us more and more judgmental cause that’s what makes us want more of their products , think about this if you are sitting in a restaurant and someone who is homeless came and sat next you how would you react – and if this someone was wearing a Rolex how would you react  ? you don’t know both of them they are complete strangers and yet you react differently and feel differently the difference you know is how much money they both have – think about that! you see the one’s poorer than you  are approaching you to get some of your money but on the contrary the one’s richer than you are already taking it.  

Branding is a way to make us always want more and that makes us controllable by those who have what we want , we are free and yet we have chosen to live in a cage     what will be the good of millions of dollars if there were one brand of each product then we would all be equal then we wouldn’t want more , that will make us free and they don’t want this.

The Biggest problem that it started to be the same in kids , at school the guys who wears better is more popular and gains more respect just Imaging the future if kids automatically think in a judgmental way which branding really supports cause it makes you want their products . Teach your children that their value is in what they do not on what they wear or how much money they have – ask a child if he wants to be rich and when he says yes ask him why and the answers will dazzle you.

You are not the best person cause you are riding an expensive car , your cheap car is valuable cause it belongs to you – you give value to things not the other way around objects are useless unless man uses it , create memories with it and gives it value 

be proud of what you did not what you bought.
