Disney is a business. Vanity Fair is a business. Hannah Montana is a business. They are concerned with profit, not family.

Parents are the ones who facilitate this bullshit of worship and consumption. Wake up adults. There is life beyond the Skinner box of commercial culture. You can start by turning off the television.

At night I walk the dog throughout our neighborhood. I hear no songs being sung. I hear no instruments in practice. I see no families gathered at tables.  Only head after head facing electronic screens.  House after house plugged in for the night.

Frame after frame – like electron freight cars to the mind – they dump tons of cues mixed with bullshit.

a deep
of required thinking.

With each
move further
from the truth.

to where
a flashlight
is called the sunlight.

you will stay
to follow
a manufactured god.
