Television, What A Waste of TimmeHow much does television mean to you? Would you sacrifice your mind, yourhealth, and your well-being just to keep ahold of it? Most people would. Theyare unaware of the severe effects that TV has on our lives and on our future.
Ithink that television should be banned from all American households because ofthe negative ideas it exploits, the creative minds it destroys, and the growingamount of kids and adults that are making this place a bigger and lazier country. In the last decade, the amount of vioilence on television has greatly increasedand so has the number of senseless homicides and suicides in our country. Thepromiscuity and violence shown regularly on household televisions has intriguesus as Americans and numbed our sense of what’s right and what’s wrong in society. What shocked us at first has now become customary dinner-time cinema. With the increase in the number of television sets in America, more and moreyoung people have been robbed of their creativity.
With TV, hardly anything isleft to the imagination. Before the existence of television, all people wreforced to create their own opinions and images of things in their own minds. But with TV, all the images are created for you and almost all the arguments areone-sided. With TV, you no longer create your own ideas; you are told them. Television has a great impact on the health of America.
The seductive topicsand biased broadcasts shows daily across America are luring more and more peopleto the confines of their living room couch for a greater amount of time. Inactivity and overeating are a common result of this decision made by adultsand kids alike. Perhaps this is the reason why America is one of the fattestcountries in the world. Television is slowly and subliminally taking its toll on America. It isstealing all of the things that are most precious to us–our mind, body, andsoul.
If you rely on television for all your entertainment, I think that youwould be way better off looking for it within yourself and the people around you.
