TV & Mass Programming: Is the One-Eyed Monster Still in Your Home?
Like most of America in the 1950's, I grew up watching the boob tube. Saturday morning cartoons, Lassie on Sunday night after the bath and Father Knows Best. I remember watching the Beatles on Ed Sullivan and the moon landing which today I think was a hoax but that's another subject you can read about elsewhere on this blog.
Nevertheless, the TV was the center of our life and my folks even moved it to the kitchen so we could watch it during dinner. Back then, most folks didn't have more than one TV in the home.
Over the years, I would go back and forth with or without a TV for various reasons but after I woke up to the deception and lies being fed us, I just got tired of it altogether and tossed the thing out. In fact, where I now live is a furnished condo on the beach and it came with 2 tv's so I asked them to remove them which they did.
So this morning, came upon the following post with which I totally agree. What say ye?

People have NOT always been this way.
Have you ever stopped to wonder what brought about such a huge and tragic transformation in the character of mankind?
‘For men shall be
–lovers of their own selves,
–disobedient to parents,
–Without natural affection,
–incontinent, [lacking self control]
–despisers of those that are good,
–highminded, [blinded by pride; arrogant, haughty, insolent]
–lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
–Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:
**from such turn away.**
. . . Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.’
(2 Tim. 3:3-5, 7)
I will tell you, in a word, why people have become this way:
More than 60 years of social programming, and the list of sociopathic tendencies that Paul described 2,000 years ago, have now become a widespread reality in the Western World.
If you’ve lived as long as I have, you have witnessed the full program as it was put forth over the airwaves, little by little, leading us into deeper and more wicked sins as a nation, as time went on. If you’ve lived as long as I have, you have witnessed the character of our people change from innocence, generosity, love, honesty, fairness, respect for authority, patriotism, community-mindedness and concern for the welfare of others to . . . the sick, twisted description given above! (AND MORE!!, because that only describes their ATTITUDES . . . their behavior is even worse!)
You cannot name ONE thing on that list that has not subtly (or blatantly) been modeled and promoted as an American value, through television, over the course of the last few decades. That list is a comprehensive description of American television–read it again. Many of you are into the programming so deeply that you can’t even see it.
So . . . WHEN will you turn yours off?!!! Are you still allowing your CHILDREN to sit in front of the one-eyed monster, and have their consciences seared and their brains rewired to produce the sort of sociopathic monsters described above? Do you really think they are somehow immune? Don’t kid yourself–the programming is HIGHLY effective in producing the sort of minions that Satan needs to help run his kingdom!
And don’t deceive yourself that children’s TV is any better. ‘They’ have this down to a science. It’s just very SUBTLE at the level aimed at young children–symbols and very subtle things that most of us would not even pick up on. They ratchet up the brainwashing later, but they begin laying the foundation with the little kids.
Nowadays, everyone thinks this is ‘normal’, the way the kids act–the rebellion, the disrespect for authority, the disdain for adults, the self-centeredness and arrogance–because they are ALL being subjected to the same programming! But this is NOT NORMAL!!! This is what happens when you let Satan help you raise your kids. (YES, that is EXACTLY what is going on when you sit them down in front of his programming device.)
