America’s Dark Culture

Dark-Culture

Call me old fashioned at a tender 30 years of age, but as I see the progression of American entertainment over the past decade, I see an industry that promotes not only the typical vices such as sex and alcohol, but death.  When ever in our culture was death  something that was so widely popularized?  We’ve always glamorized the bad boy, street racing, guns, sex, and alcohol to some degree throughout our entertainment.  However, they were always trying to cheat death…but today it’s embraced.

What does this have to do with preparedness?  As any great nation loses it’s moral compass, so follows its people, and it loses itself:

Music – Do you even realize what they are singing about?

Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks – Held #3 on Billboard top 100

“All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run faster than my bullet.

Doesn’t sound so fun when you stare at a picture of Columbine…

No…not a nose bleed.  Just Lady Gaga entertaining the masses through suicide

I smell barbecue…no wait, that’s Katy Perry being sacrificed in a ring of fire at the music awards.  Oh BTW, “Are you ready for a perfect storm?”  The Dark horse of the apocalypse represents famine.  I guess that means no barbecue :-/

A little conspiratorial, but I have to admit a typical animal claw does not have nice, neat, horizontal lines across the tops…666

Laying next to your dead spouse is so “Vogue”.  Strike that pose!

How about some of those recent movie titles and imagery…

Batman – The Dark Knight

Star Trek – Into Darkness

Thor: The Dark World

I guess the dark side wasn’t only limited to Darth Vader…

    WOW. I deliberately ignore “popular culture” because it’s frivolous trash, but was not aware it had become so overtly demonic. This helps explain why Christian, veteran, firearms owners are being regarded as “potential terrorists” since anything good is considered a threat by evil.

    Honor. Ethics. Morality. Compassion. Empathy.

    In my lifetime I feel like have seen these traits almost completely disappear. It begins with a culture that demonizes family values. It continues with a culture that discourages and even ridicules faith of any kind. A country that has become way too dependent on its leaders, if you can even call them that. And I think it ends with the complete breakdown of social skills and values – the things that make a society a society.

    What we have left is an empty trash culture that idolizes celebrities (instead of strong role models) and is mostly empty, spiritually. A dumbed down hedonistic collection of people who don’t really care about each other. Glued to their iPhones, texting meaningless messages and chasing after the next new toy.

    Top that off with the fact that young people are realizing that they have no future. No jobs. A collapsing economy. Endless war. Endless oppression from all sides. It wears people down to the point where they just don’t care anymore. I never thought I would say it, but I miss the 60s. There was a lot of strife, but at least people had hope. They had big dreams. At least people worked HARD to make the world a better place. People had vision and ideas and plans. Now it’s a dog eat dog world.
