There is vileness in our popular culture that defies rational explanation. Like, for instance, Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, whose purpose seems to be to persuade young people to commit suicide.
The American Family Assn. has a petition asking Netflix to cancel the series (https://www.afa.net/who-we-are/press-releases/2018/warnings-about-netflix-s-13-reasons-why/). If you click the link, you can find out how you can sign the petition. AFA president Tim Wildmon has also requested a meeting with the Netflix CEO, but Netflix turned him down.
Netflix is also famous for its recent airing of “A Star-Spangled Salute to Abortion.”
Anyway, Season 2 of 13 Reasons is coming up, sort of geared to the back-to-school season. Season 1 ended with a 3-minute-long graphic depiction of a teenaged girl committing suicide.
In real life, a 14-year-old girl killed herself after watching 13 Reasons.
In addition to justifying suicide, 13 Reasons serves up a full menu of sex, crime, violence, and perversion. All of it pitched to teens.
Why do we have this in our culture? Who has decided that we need it?
We’re running out of “What next?” scenarios. There almost is no “what next.” I don’t even feel I’m on safe ground by saying Hollywood has not yet endorsed serial murder: I may have missed something along those lines.
One does not murder the culture with impunity. Kill the culture, and it will kill you back.
Hollywood, colleges and looniversities, teachers’ unions, public schools, and liberals are working tirelessly, unceasingly, to kill our culture piece by piece. I don’t know why they do it, what they hope to gain. I can only believe the entire enterprise from top to bottom is satanic in its origin.
Because I just can’t see the benefit of this to anybody.
