The World

A message to my Newphew

 

I agree with your views and perceptions. I may have already suggested you view the movie Good Night and Good Luck. From 1940 to 1949 about 1,000,000 homes in the US had tv’s. In the 50’s this is when the T.V. became a useful tool. Edward R. Morrow took on the establishment by exposing the militaries un justification of dishonorably discharging a young man because his father belonged to an organization that was supposedly associated with communism. The Joe McCarthy Hearings used  Television and Edward R. Morrow criticism and exposed Joe McCarthy for what he was. It was at this time that the powers in the United States realized how powerful the T.V. was. Communication in the 20th century set in motion the tools to manipulate public opinion, habits, what we eat, how we entertain ourselves, and unfortunately our morals. Christian based virtues are being attached each and every day. The media, print, television, radio and now the internet have been used to influence our decisions. Seeing is believing may sum it up. What people see in most cases they believe. I go by the Proverb “believe half of what you see and nothing of what you hear”. One thing is for sure God is still in charge, he gives us the free will to make our own decisions. If you believe  then have no fear. Its frustrating to see what goes on each day. I try to keep everything in perspective. I look at my family and say thank you God. My children have grow into wonderful adults and yours will too because of you and Maria. Basically, there is nothing any one individual can do to correct the situation. Until our leaders meaning our politicians in Washington, our local governments, and supreme court justices see the light we will always have these problems. I believe the only way to stop this trend towards oblivion is to elect good people locally and then send them to Washington.
