They can barely even speak let alone understand a TV show. They just know that a show has good characters in bad characters and the good ones always
defeat the bad ones and there are plots that make the story develop (and these children have no idea what the plots are and they are seemingly so
random at time). Even I as a child once watched shows just because they were on TV and I just saw the bullets, the spells being cast, and the action
heroes. All of which were blinding me to see the truth that the cartoon shows were just a mask on my eyes keeping me from seeing everything else.
There were some good shows out there but a majority of the shows that were out were really stupid and I could not imagine that they were stupid so I
thought they were good since they were on TV. I can't understand what values that TV shows put into the mind of children. Children should be reading
books, not, like watching TV shows that they don't understand.
These TV shows just have some sort of emotional value that leads them to want to watch it again and again to get their emotional high. If one can keep
their head away from the TV at any moment when they are a child it is to do homework. For the most part anyone knows that a child who watches TV is
addicted to it. Do they even understand it? What is going through their brains when they watch the show? They may say that they watch the show because
they think it's funny but they're really being brainwashed. Look at kids watching TV, keeping their eyes glued on TV, not taking their eyes off of
it for hours, only to look when someone's coming so that they can change the channel so that someone around them doesn't know what they are
watching. Look at children trying to watch cartoon movies and then talking about how awesome or great a certain character was because of the
character's use of their skills to defeat an array of enemies. Children are being brainwashed for the new century as part of some plan to rely on
this sort of convenience so that they can be entertained.
Being entertained is a good thing right? Children are being dumbed down by the shows they watch and they are spending hours of their life growing up
being completely unproductive and then overwhelmed by the amount of effort they have to put into middle school and or high school because of the
amount of TV that they watched. Children watch at least 3 hours of TV
). Consider that and consider how much more productive they would
become if they spent the time they watched TV reading a book. Children are just being brainwashed by cartoons so that they can become a part of a
society which is already controlled by the media so that their thoughts about the real world can become distorted by cartoons. Watching cartoons for
them is not a choice but it is simply an addiction. The influence that cartoons has over their mind can distort their mind from reality. This is an
influence which is found in many children and causes lots of erratic fantasies about certain characters and about what they do and what they would do
if they were real. The use of cartoons can be used for propaganda. It has been done before and the results of the propaganda was very successful.
Children are very prone to this kind of mental torture and nothing is being noted about the effects of mental destabilization of watching TV shows on
their brain. Something has to be done about this or overdose of TV consumption will result in severe memory alteration, memory loss, or brain damage.
I'm afraid much of the population has already had their brain damaged as a result of this medium.
