I Have come across many cute Personality tests which asks you ” which desperate house wives personality are you?” or ” which friends Personality are you/” My God they can really make the world easier by cutting down the personality options to a hand count number, this is really dangerous , these personality amused us on TV , knowing that we would never want to be like them because of the cultural values and disciplined lives we Used to have, they nurtured our minds just like fiction movies give us that out of reality amusement after watching the movie , and sometimes go into movies that slightly touch reality so it becomes more amusing implying in the movie that it could happen , the thought never stopped there , as i see it was three phases of media invasion , the first to Display , the Second to, emotionally admire, involve and love the third was brain wash and imitation of those comedic characters.
Now I know why some long sighted scholars forbid TV and TV shows , now I understand why the actors on one side and the intellectual families in USA and Europe do not allow their children to watch TV and if they do it will be monitored to a level of an hour a day.
This again shows the power of the Media , we had displayed in Ramadan a charming Bedouin character called Nimer El Edwan , apparently people (youth) started dressing like him in funerals and weddings but the effect was not long as there was no other episode following the first part besides that show was also about stealing from the next village and expressing our darkest era of history in this country .
How can we fight back this huge unstoppable flow of media , when our media is not up to the level of entertainment as such of that in Hollywood and else where , for God’s sake our elders started enjoying the news of singer and actors around the world , this is really dangerous , they say its beautiful then it is they say its cool then it is cool as well , we are getting programmed just like fiction movies of the 80s imagining the world of 2000 and beyond .
I am really getting worried about our youth for that matter will reach every house and pocket nowadays , they can broadcast moveis and TV shows on Mobiles , how can you control corruption when it is in the air and anyone can catch it and see it . I think the solution started in the opposite direction of media where we have religious channels ,ones we need our kids to watch , and again we to control this because loads of Ideas might just break a rule in our kids’ mind.
We need to go back to other sources of information where our own head can draw and cognise the thoughts without disturbance of pre-judgements or stereotype brainwash effect from moveis or TV shows. If we are smart it is time to recall the old ways of reading , i think the Internet helped me a lot in going back to reading and writing like who i wanted to be, before i come here.
Finally i would like to express the power of un-effected individuals and unpoluted minds , not going to the 10% of brain usage theory , only going to the power we can get from getting our culture and history back inside our hearts , since the western media empty’s the the heart from the thoughts and meanings it used to have , it will be our turn to fill them again without stains or dirt this time , a carfully studied re-educational process.
