Venting.

7 Aug

No wonder most Japanese seem to be more polite and have better morals than others nowadays, their dramas actually teach lessons about life and how to be a good person, instead of showing us how to be arrogant, rude, narcissistic, and ‘independent’ like most of the dumb shows on American television these days. I am so sick of the reality TV shows that corrupt the lives of what would be normal or relatively normal teenage kids. It pains me that people find that watching others struggle in their life is funny and entertaining. Why do there need to be shows like “16 and Pregnant”? Why can’t the new parents be allowed to live peacefully and raise their child in a good environment? All of the drama that is in their lives is practically pushed on them because they are being watched on national television. Who wants to watch a normal happy family with no problems and no fights? And what are kids being taught when they watch shows like “Gossip Girl” or “Desperate Housewives”? That it’s cool to be a bitch. It’ll make you popular. You’ll have power if you’re pretty. It’s okay for you to cheat on your spouse or significant other. I don’t understand the point of these shows. They show kids to be rebellious and fight for their independence. But they don’t teach them to appreciate their parents, respect authority, and be loyal to your friends. It’s sad that this is what American culture has come to, and how the young generation is being taught. If this is still how it is when I have children I swear I will not own a television. It really scares me how much power the media has over children’s lives these days. I know because it has influenced me too. I wish I could have these Japanese dramas all made into popular American shows and movies so that people would understand right from wrong, good from bad, justice from injustice, truth, loyalty, respect, honor, love.
