Great post so articulate and you have eluded to the bigger picture in your follow up. The problem is that Pandora's box is open and the masses are
already mesmerized and will refuse to understand and only defend there personal position. I fear the hour has become too late.
THX THX TONS for your kind words.
It's not just that Pandora's box has been opened . . . it's been . . . expanded and dismantled with glorifying dramas and exaltations.
[color=6699FF]If someone had said to me 45 years ago that the media and games would be as saturated as they have become, with blood-lust death,
mayhem, horror and evil, I'd have thought they were telling some sick crazed joke.
I wouldn't have been thinking.
We SHOULD have known 45 years ago. Some did have an inkling. And certainly the planners knew.
We could have known that the era seeing Israel become a nation again in a day would be the same era seeing the satanic world government saturated with
evil from hell and led by hell's king to be worshiped as God. We could have extrapolated to the arts what that would look like. But we didn't.
We have on this thread folks calling evil good and good evil. And they don't see it, at all. Perhaps they CANNOT see it. And THAT is frightful,
And the folks who bugger and sacrifice toddler boys to gain entry to the upper ranks of the global leaders think it's grand and glory in the blood
lust, gore, death and mayhem . . . and they thrill that they've infected and saturated a once tolerably, somewhat sane culture with death and

every iteration their nerve pathways become more habituated with the memes, themes, values of death, gore, horror and destruction.
[color=6699FF]That's NOT subjective!
NEUROCHEMICAL & ELECTRICAL SCIENCE
. . . but the contention is . . .
[color=CC9966]Ahhhh but it's HARMLESS FUN! Maybe next time, I can splatter his brains from one edge of the screen to the other and dripping down
the wall in a thrilling bloody pattern . . . a kind of brain splatter wallpaper. Yeah. Maybe with a little extra tweak of the controller at just the
right time, I can get that effect. Then get a screen capture and have a great new screen saver/wall paper image for my computer. What a kick.'
AND THE BAND PLAYS ON
Its amazing to watch ole scratch take this world isn't it?
Yeah. In a grossly sad way.
Tolkien captured it well.
Too well for my tastes. Maybe a psychologist sees too much pain and suffering in normal life. There's NO joy in even reading or seeing fiction about
more of it.
Thankfully, THE KING IS COMING.
HAIL THE RETURN OF THE KING.
LONG LIVE THE ETERNAL KING.
However, those who delight in wallowing in gore, horror, blood, mayhem, pain, suffering and death
WILL UNDOUBTEDLY get to wallow in their preferences for a very long time
