What kind of a future is pop culture entertainment and advertising media hacking out for us right now? Can there even be a future for a humanity that strives to be so shallow? (Sultana Usafali). The result of lies is more lies, and ultimately reality is the bowling ball that knocks deceptions over like pins. Those who were clinging to the pins and making them the center of their world go down too. Lies and liars are swept away. In my opinion, media effects on self-image today are the result of a long-tended, carefully perfected brainwashing ploy that in the end will doom the world.
