dumbing down society: act on screens

(Note: the term Dumbing Down Society might sounds insulting, but according to a site where I took it---means a call for a fast awakening and to point out a truth which have been deliberately veiled, weakened, and propagandized. i took it for it sounds catchy and related to this post…^_^)

Philippines' national hero Dr. Jose Rizal's says: Ang Kabataan ay ang Pag-asa ng Bayan translated in Google means The Youth are the hope of the people...
But what if...this generation (beginning from now) is being dumbed or mind-controlled by those tricking media, especially by those TV program---and cartoons are not exempted...

Tom and Jerry and the Illuminati President of Hollywood (video) 

Surprising and shocking to some viewers and might think this is just a Tom and Jerry parody episode about illuminati (that tells everyone what the h*ck is illuminati, oh com'on let's just laugh it off)---but actually that is an actual episode of the show...creepy! Aside from those violent video games and music videos-----Illuminati might also shown in those kids favorite saturday morning cartoons...which shows off that they're main target is not just adults but also those younger viewers. 


Violence too, is an issue! Majority of the TV programs (aside TV news, since that's their main covers) now includes violence that's seemingly been a normal or common coverage shown...

According to a new study 'screen violence desensitizes teenage brains.'

They say it is among the first hard physiological evidence for the theory that on-screen violence leads to real-world aggression.

For years campaigners have argued that watching violent films and playing games like Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Modern Warfare makes youngsters more prone to violence. In the Grand Theft Auto series, players become characters who win points for carjacking, killing prostitutes and running over pedestrians.
Summarising his findings, Dr Jordan Grafman, of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke in Bethesda, US, said: “Exposure to the most violent videos inhibits emotional reactions to similar aggressive videos over time and implies that normal adolescents will feel fewer emotions over time as they are exposed to similar videos.”
“Continued exposure to violent videos will make an adolescent less sensitive to violence, more accepting of violence, and more likely to commit aggressive acts since the emotional component associated with aggression is reduced and normally acts as a brake on aggressive behaviour.”
The study has been published online in the Oxford Journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience.
But Prof Mark Griffiths, a psychologist at the International Gaming Research Unit at Nottingham Trent University, said such studies could not prove a causal link between watching violent images and committing real-life violence.
He said: “I don’t think anybody would deny that people do become desensitised to violence. But the real issue is whether that in and of itself causes negative consequences.”
People were not simply slaves to the biological processes of their bodies and brains, he said. How they behaved also depended on a host of psychological and social factors, such as how much violence they experienced as children.

But whatever their conclusion is, seriously, either it's rated PG or not "parental guidance is advice" should be apply...and of course God's guidance.
