Media’s Role…

September 6, 2010 3 comments

Media’s role in our negative views of life are predominant. News channels and magazines and Sunday Morning newspapers, radio, they all play a major part in projecting the negative image of humanity.
Just take a look at the images that made picture of the week from TIME journalistic photographers:

Bomb attack in Pakistan

Fire ravaged Phillipines

Homeless in flood waters of Pakistan

News of trapped miners in San Jose, Chile

Do you see the correlation to our own viewpoints of the world around us? DO you feel the media generates more negative news to the viewing public than it does positive news?

What change do you think it might have on the world’s society if more positive news were projected out to the masses?

For those of you who didn’t catch all the words:
Paranoia is in Bloom,
The PR transmissions will resume,
They’ll try to push drugs that keep us all dumbed down,
And hope that we will never see the truth around
(So Come On)
Another promise, another scene,
Another packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed,
And all the green belts wrapped around our minds,
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
(So Come On)
They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
We will be victorious
(So Come On)
Interchanging mind control,
Come let the revolution take its toll,
If you could flick a switch and open your third eye,
You’d see that
We should never be afraid to die
(So Come On)
Rise up and take the power back,
Its time the fat cats had a heart attack,
You know that their time’s coming to and end,
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend
What do you derive from these lyrics that has to do with today’s society and what it could mean in regard to the current state of our nation’s role in government? What does it say for today’s media?
