Law and Order

And it is yet another Sunday on this day that I find myself blah blogging away on this computer yet again. Sunday, that day of rest, the Sabbath, or is that Saturday. And it has been seemingly a while since I have really blaghed about anything that requires much thought, because hey, it’s less writing sometimes. And yet it is one of those headlines that caught my eye the other day titled, or sort of titled, Ad featuring “Yet another Hollywood celebrity who sales their soul for fame and fortune”, ordered off UK TV. And this article goes on to say something like “In London, a TV ad showing “Yet another actor who sales his or her soul for fame and fortune” firing weapons must not be shown because it could be seen as condoning gun violence, Britain’s advertising watchdog said. The Advertising Standards Authority said the ad for the DVD version of Universal Pictures 2008 action flick “Wanted” breached ad codes and should not be broadcast”. And this article seems to be about the Law and Order isms of the world, The Special Victims Unit, NYPD Blue, CSI, The Sopranos, Starsky and Hutch, OZ, Dick Tracy, Dragnet, Miami Vice, Criminal Intent, Murder She Wrote, The Murder Channel, NBC, CBS, FOX, ABC, Universal Media Studios, Universal Pictures, Sony Pictures, major hollywood studios, major television networks, prime time television, primetime late night network television shows and dramas, day time dramas, crime dramas, soap operas, TV series, commercials, feature films, radio, pop culture, and the list goes on and on and beyond that has captivated the universe through entertainment and media, and has its grip on a society. And it seems to be film noir, the glorification of violence, gun violence and gun crime in television and films, as if it is cool to be seen holding a gun, an idea that seems to have existed as long as there has been cowboys and indians and some sort of media outlet. And does an actor, artist or any other entertainer sale ones soul, values and morals for fame and fortune if given the opportunity. And would one be a hypocrite if one were to sale ones soul if given the opportunity. And what would Michael Moore and his Bowling For Columbine film have to say about this. The idea that the majority of programming on network television, at least in that country of North America contains violence. And if only every other advertising watchdog could just follow that Britain and London condoning and ordering gun violence off UK TV’s lead, it seems as if the world could have a chance of being a better place. Does not advertising influence society. And guns are the worst invention of a death industry ever. If only guns could be banished from every human being on the face of planet earth, and the images of guns could be banned from every form of advertising, marketing campaign, newspaper, pop culture, toys, video games, news, television and film. And it is a vicious cycle that feeds upon itself, advertising breeds crime which breeds more advertising which breeds more crime. And what would happen if no crime occurred yesterday, today or tomorrow. Would an industry be out of a job. And it is the emperor who wears no clothes. And for what reason does the word patriot have the word riot in it. Parens Patraie, father of our country, father of the people. Where is the world headed. Is there hope for the world. And I am one voice, one blogger. Is another world possible. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And what does this have to do with a No Police State.
