Dependence on Society

From very early on, we must pass on to our children our total dependence on society, for better or for worse.

On the one hand, we must show them through games, examples, and other forms that society can be very harmful. We must show how it overtakes and confuses people, and how it can actually “hypnotize” them to the point that if they follow it, they might find themselves behind bars the next day.

However, if they join a good society, its persuasiveness affects them positively.

These are the examples we must show children—of all ages—in different ways so they will understand that by choosing their environment—the friends and the media they are exposed to—they are educating themselves and essentially determining their own fate.

From this we can conclude what we, as parents, must want the media to show, as well as everything else people are exposed to these days.
