This is actually a good point but I dont think you took it sufficiently far.
IT's silly to mock the TV/movie education when there could very well be a pack of lies everywhere else in addition. No need to single out TV/movies.
There are indeed a pack of lies everywhere. It is up to us ..we ourselves to develope the filter or tools necessary to discern the lie/lies and the very nature or essence of them. After you do this enough ..you begin to develope a feel for where the lies are intended to take us or misdirect us.
Concerning movies and television. I do indeed watch movies and television ..but I am not easily put on the bandwagon concerning them as are so many people out here.
Which is why I am often critizing what I call a movie and television education.
I am constantly appalled, and yet in a way I should not be, by how many people I know who have a movie and television education and cannot express a idea or concept..particularly a moral concept without referenceing a television or movie program they have observed.
I could not believe that at a high school graduation earlier this year...a teacher a PHD spoke and referenced for his whole speech the movie called "Hunger Games" for encouragement to the graduating class. I was beside myself and could not stop laughing at the irony...and sickness.
I am a nuclear fueler by trade..I put fuel into nuclear reactors. Do you think I would ever trust a nit wit like this to watch my back or make decisions for me??
I came to realize that these people are stamped out like on a xerox machine. They have someone else's thoughts, someone else's emotions, someone else's values. They do not even seem to be aware of it.
So too it is with racism as well. They are responding often to a transplanted concept from someone else. A Hegelian dialectic. This is the nature of the phony ..on both sides of this issuse. I often think to myself that this is one of the reasons history is such a poorly taught subject...because if more people knew history ..they would not be as easily mislead or conversely lead.
Well..I hope you get the idea.
It is not the movies and television per se..correct on this..but the nature of people themselves that they are so easily lead or mislead..they have no real anchor..but are tossed to and fro ..particularly by worshipping before the big screen without understanding the nature of it.
I am speaking of the nature of things out here ..not only the seen but the unseen as well.
And this too is Biblical.
Thanks for your post but I must now make haste as time grows short here.
