MORAL DECADENCE IN THE 21ST CENTURY

moral-decadenceThere is something utterly amiss in this world. Societies, especially the young minds are being unconsciously brainwashed, transformed and conditioned through movies, television or the internet to emulate perversion, sexual deviance and violent behavior. It is indeed a deliberate attempt by malevolent fortune seekers who have allowed the debasement of the young susceptible minds to further inflate their coffers.

I am very concerned with the way irreligiosity and materialism has gone to such heights as to transform a large proportion of young minds into a selfish, drug-addicted, and violent generation.  Violence and pornography is everywhere; just turn on the TV, watch movies, search the internet, browse through magazines, or listen to records. We are being used and abused by the so-called leaders of governments who allow it, and by the large corporations who encourage it throughout the world. These individuals who only care about their own stature and greed, can be compared to deadly viruses who invade the host, begin to replicate causing diabolical mayhem in the minds of young people.

Thus, it is plain for us to see that the new generations that have been created and will continue to emerge is a world made of insecure and dejected minds whose souls have been deformed to ignore ethical and moral standards, enlightenment and compassion toward his fellow human being. In a society where violence, perverted sexual gratification and ingestion of drugs is considered cool, and where immorality has become widespread and tolerated, there is nothing good to emerge from it.

This vicious cycle which has enveloped our society since the mid-’60s is worsening with every day passing, and is infecting the minds of our young population to become unhappy, uncaring, materialistic and immoral automatons, unaware of their precarious destiny now gripping the world.

It is most urgent that we seek for leaders with the vision to inculcate moral and ethical values to our society by censuring any type of violence, pornography, perversion, woman trafficking and drugs from our screens, computers, books and streets and who will lay the foundations for an enlightened culture that celebrates human compassion and decency worthy of residing in this beautiful planet.

  1. But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away. 2 Timothy 3:1-5.
