Popular Culture has incessantly spewed trivial and dumbed-down content which is mass-produced for mass-consumption but at turn of the millennium, it has further regressed into a twisted, gratuitous, and chaotic system of control. Wikipedia states:
Popular culture is the entirety of attitudes, ideas, images, perspectives, and other phenomena within the mainstream of a given culture, especially Western culture of the early to mid-20th century and the emerging global mainstream of the late 20th and early 21st century. Heavily influenced by mass media, this collection of ideas permeates the everyday lives of the society.
Pop Culture has always been a rancid assault on our senses but now it has a goal of completely undermining the foundation of Western Civilization while fostering capitulation. The Mainstream Media along with FedBook and ScrewTube have lulled the masses into believing in a reality that does not actually exist. Most individuals have lost all sense of 'self' and look to Pop Culture to define who they are as well as what is right versus what is wrong.
Pop Culture has seeped deep into our moral fiber causing irreparable damage yet the celebrities and icons that instigate this unabashed nonsense are looked up to as 'Gods' by our society. For example, the stars of reality TV shows are always stark, shallow, and borderline insane individuals that lead completely pathetic lives, yet millions of people follow their every move and put them on a pedestal.
We are constantly bombarded with Pop Culture's hypersexualized, idiotic, tasteless debauchery which has become more gratuitous and more in your face over time. As a result, today's youth have been brainwashed into believing that narcissism is the ultimate measure of satisfaction and importance. When 16 year olds were recently asked what they would like to be when they grow up, 50% answered 'become a celebrity'. This is perhaps why young people are more depressed than ever because they are aspiring to something completely vacuous and unobtainable for the majority of the population.
The entire industry is grounded within a loop of a lack of diversity which is why pop culture is so sterile. Simply look at what happened to Kanye West when he went 'off-script' and woke up from his coma to enlighten his fans, they immediately placed him into a psych ward?
Popular Music is less diverse than ever before with dumbed-down lyrics, monotonous beats, and brain-dead hooks that echo the same lame lines over and over again... Money, Sex, Violence. There has not been a single authentic movement in Pop Music for decades and after punk/grunge we have heard nothing but one repetitive track after another. MTV itself has completely given up on bringing about any new music and has resorted to shows such as 16 and Pregnant.
Meanwhile, talentless divas and skill-less retards have taken over Pop Culture completely and we are expected to worship and look up to them. We are forced to swallow this rotten and monochromatic culture so that we can feel an affinity with our peers. This is why everyone is the same... same haircuts, same hoodies, same tattoos, same uneducated outlook...
Why is anything original, anything beautiful, anything requiring skill, and anything inspiring drowned out by clips of complete idiots? What is supposed to inspire us now dehumanizes us and we have gone beyond FULL-RETARD and entered FULL-IDIOCRACY.
Pop Culture has become so invasively vulgar that it is often cited as one of the factors in the radicalization of Islamic Terrorists. Jihadists see Miley Cyrus as a legitimate reason to attack the US, and who can blame them? Pop Culture has become a direct threat to Western Civilization since it gives our enemies a legitimate reason to destroy us. If we continue to allow this waste to represent what we stand for, and we promote this havoc any longer, we will be destroyed as a civilization either by eliminating ourselves in disgust, or by other civilizations fed up with our blatant disrespect for humanity.
