Anyone if they are smart enough can make almost anything support their ideas or views. Depending on what you take from something or what time in history you are looking at any idea if it is shitty or not can be 'proven' to be fact. I am getting tired of people just taking what they want out of things and leaving the rest if it does not support their view of things.
The media (all of it from movies and news to books and magazines) has this down to a science and depending on who they need to favor they spin things around to support them. Even statistics can be used to support anything if you just 'explain' it right to make your point. I don't even watch the news anymore because it has been so twisted that I know I am not getting the whole truth. I have to seek out the truth on the internet because I only get what they want me the know.
Why can't the media just report everything and let the public decide how to spin the information given.
Most people are sheep and cannot think on their own so the media can shape our cultures any way that they want to. I recomend to everyone a book called "the media monopoly" for more on this subject because like everything people are going to believe what they want to out of this post and leave the rest.
I am sick and tired of the media being geared toward consumption. The more you watch the more you consume. Life is not about what we can buy. Life is about things that cannot be purchased, traded or sold. Life is about family, love, friends and emotion. He who dies with the most toys does not win, life is not a contest. The more people that understand this the better off the world will be.
If this sparks thought in just one person I will be thrilled and if it doesn't then love, peace, my hair is full of grease
