That part about recreational drug use, alcohol, and sex is where you failed to be truthful about that by watering it down to make it sound as
though these are just everyday things not to be worried about or considered to be serious break downs in society.
You live in a box, you don't like looking out of the box. You just contradicted yourself by admitting to...
The entertainment world is like any other business in America. Money and power corrupt. Those with the power to hand out high-paying roles and make or
break an actors career sadly may wield that influence to put the hopeful actor into compromising positions. Artistic types - whether writer, actor,
musician, artist - are often 'flakes', very sensitive, and more prone to trying things on the fringe culture of life. This behavior is not societies
norm and is looked down upon by many. Recreational drug use, alcohol abuse or sex beyond the missionary position does not make one a satanist. I do
think that major films have an incredible impact on American audiences. Far too many people seem to take their cues from behavior, dialogue and styles
they see in movies or on television.
You miss the most important aspect and usefulness of the media when it comes to corrupt people with evil intentions. The most useful to the rich and
powerful are those in the media world, everything from news reporters, actors and actresses, directors, producers, and on and on, and lets not forget,
Recreational drug use, alcohol and sex -are- everyday occurrences and no, they are not the breakdown of society. When the land we call USA was
inhabited by the natives we call Indians there was drug use. Marijuana, psilocybin mushroom and peyote are all natural gifts of nature that our
government choses to label as drugs and declared them illegal. Indians in America used these substances in rituals. There was drug use of other sort
in other countries long before the USA came to be. Opium dens of the Orient flourished before america existed. Peasants in areas like Bolivia have
been chewing coca leaves for the longest time. Mankind experimenting and using drugs is not only normal, it is natural and healthy. It is part of
mankinds life experience. We are inquisitive and experimental by nature.
Likewise, alcohol was being fermented, distilled and consumed long before the USA existed. You know this, and you know people have been enjoying sex
for a few years too. I've had sex, and aside from being useful for procreation, it can be a thrilling and exhilarating experience.
This indicates that you, dear OP, may be the person living in a box.
Furthermore, your statement "You miss the most important aspect and usefulness of the media when it comes to corrupt people with evil intentions."
is completely incorrect. I am well aware that manipulation of minds through media exists, it is the entire reason it exists! Even in a pure & innocent
children's Disney cartoon there is manipulation as the viewer is drawn into the story and entertained.
Yes, we are all aware that media has been a slanted propaganda tool of manipulation at many levels by many people the world over. I did not state this
does not exist.
I can't help but notice you have abandoned your original post statements focusing on black magic in Hollywood ( I do apologize for not remembering
your exact words ). Again I state that you have no proof of what you were making claims of in your original post. Your reply does support your
Feel free to think I am a person in a closed box. Anyone reading our entire thread will see you have not supported your viewpoint, you twice failed to
give a speck of legitimacy to your original claim, and it is you that has lead the closed box life. Perhaps you should be able to back up what you are
stating online. You offer me no further input to support or explain your original statement. When you are unable to provide intelligent statements
with which to sway my opinion you choose the cheap way out with (again) an opinion, that I live in a box and don't like looking out of my box.
Please share with us all these facts you have that inspired your original post. You've got nothing, your realization of this frustrates you, so you
resort to the living in a box crack. Thank you for sharing.
