Okay, I admit I'm a bit out of the loop when it comes to the world as it is today. But honestly, can someone tell me when the Super Bowl stopped being about football? What I saw on Sunday past was, well, disgusting. I'm a purist when it comes to this kind of thing and I really don't see the need to mollify people who have no interest in the event itself. Professional football is not about advertisements on television. It's not about scantily clad females making noises that no one can understand or needs to even be exposed to. What I was forced to endure for the sake of money was not even remotely resembling the passion of the game. It was nothing more than a capsule of what the world has become.
In the world of music, the key ingredient no longer is music. I don't really understand the noise that a so-called superstar named Beyonce makes on stage. To me, it resembled absolutely nothing of value that world could not do just as well without. I mean, more time was spent putting together dance numbers and pyrotechnics than spent producing music worthy of being heard. The mix, which I understand they spent a lot of money on, sounded like mud with a drone of bass and piercing screams from the singers that sounded more like a mutilation than entertainment. And tell me, do 10 and 12 year old boys need to see women in lingerie thrusting their hips and making extremely sexual movements? Don't we have enough troubles already?
If you wish to point fingers at the problems within our world, that event illustrated it clearly. Sex is what everything is about and young people are exposed to a steady diet of it whether they want to be or not. I don't think anyone with talent has to dress like a 12 dollar hooker to attract an audience. They can do so simply by singing. Anyone with musical talent doesn't need to dance around as if she's in heat to make people love her. They sing with style and class. Could you imagine Doris Day acting like a slut to attract her audience? Young girls are influenced by what they see and do you really think airing such things where surely many are watching is giving the right moral compass for them? Is there no one who will be responsible and say enough is enough? I mean the NFL claims to have this incredible moral standard. They fined a player for simply expressing his feelings about homosexuals. Why? It's an opinion. Do you think it's acceptable to act like a prostitute on stage moaning and groaning rather than singing a nice melody?
It is, of course, another example of the hypocrisy that is rampant within our world. There is no place for it and never will be. However, it is the prime culprit in that demoralizing of our world. Remove morals and replace them with "freedom" and you wind up with exactly what has led to the downfall of every great society. Tell me the truth, do you honestly believe you are better off having seen Beyonce Sunday than you were before you were forced to endure that garbage? Or would the world seem a much gentler place had we never had to see such spectacles? I think if you are honest the answer is obvious.
