Consumer Creatures

Consumer Creatures

The market for teenagers and pre teen children is enormous. Parents on the one hand have a hard time raising children the way they want to, while on the other hand, kids are being increasingly influenced by commercialism that often goes against what parents are trying to do.

Then there are the plethora of marketers that peddle sex and drugs to our pre teen and teens through every facet of our society. Parents have no shot against the onslaught of racy marketing from Seventeen magazine to MTV and Glee. Well produced entertainment and pop culture icons that continually spew sex to our kids in the pursuit of profit. The end result is a society knee deep in sexual deviation and pre occupation by not letting kids be kids. The pursuit of the all mighty dollar has turned our children into nothing more than marketing mice in a multi billion dollar industry.

So sad that those who pursue the dollar can’t see that what they are doing is akin to cannibalizing our children’s souls. I don’t advocate censuring free speech but I can’t sit by and merely watch when children are used in this way. The bottom line is children are being used and molded into nothing more than consumer creatures. Hail to the all mighty dollar!


About Commish Greg

I have had a life long love affair with the New York Yankees and baseball period. In my retirement I've discovered the hobby of sports game simulation through online gaming. I also have collected cards and memorabilia since I was 7 years old in 1961. I inherited from my uncle the collections starting from 1956 - 1960 and in 1961 I started my own collecting. I started an online league through Out Of The Park Development and their game OOTP16. The name of the league is the Alternate History Baseball League and it began in the 1954 baseball season when I and fifteen others held an inaugural draft and began the AHBL league in earnest. In my blog I will review the AHBL league and also mix some pop culture and historic events from real life. I hope you enjoy !
