Buying habits promote immorality

Recently, several readers of a magazine produced by a popular clothing company became enraged by the existence of widespread sexually graphic pictures throughout. Many of these readers took action and protested by way of an article condemning the images.

Their argument is that this teenage-oriented periodical should be suitable for the audience and be constructive; not have the destructive nature that these images, some considered even pornographic, are able to have for many readers.

Unfortunately, the fact that protest over this matter has been virtually isolated almost encourages such material as the consumer base has not decreased over this issue.

It has become a tendency for society and media to influence one another. Society will popularize media that it considers to be popular in its circles; media will capitalize on society’s demand, and at the same time, influence social trends in order to possibly direct demand.

This trend has brought rise to the practice mentioned above, encouraging acts in popular culture along the same lines.

In his chief work, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Edward Gibbon gave five tenets resulting in the collapse of the Roman Empire. The primary one was widespread sexual immorality. The national structure of the United States is almost identical to Rome.

Those who encourage such activities through images named above are not exactly in this nation’s best interest. In the present and possible future circumstances, it appears necessary to halt this trend in order to preserve this nation.

It is apparent that many are willing to protest this continued practice, and it is known that public demonstration against corporations can be very influential because it causes the corporation–which makes continuous effort to maintain a certain image–to comply in a number of cases. No major form of protest has taken place over this affair, which has been an issue for several years now.

The only way for a “”popular”” trend leading toward national destruction is to demonstrate its unpopularity.
