i approve of the Government's involvement in anti-drug abuse in
entertainment =iff= such involvement is explicitly declared in a way
that's easily accessible to viewers, listeners, etc.
you know, if it's done in an openly-Forthright way, it's just an
indication that folks are, in fact, coming together to work to enhance
the general good, no?
in the absence of such coming-together, all entertainment 'educates'
anyway, because it drives neural activation and learning occurs in an
activity-dependent way, regardless (of course, as a function of
'experiential total'; AoK, Ap7 & 8).
it's very-important, though, to keep things Open, and Forthright, so
that folks don't reach a 'conclusion' that forces are coming-together in
a 'conspiracy' to surrepticiously manipulate their existences.
be Care-filled, Open, Honest, Forthright.
as i've discussed in the past, doing this sort of thing is also good
and it would be excellent if folks in Journalism were to communicate to
folks how it is that folks can come-together to work together on behalf
of the General Good.
Journalists have Obligation, though, to seek, and expose Hipocricy with
respect to this or that group saying one thing and doing another.
'lip service' that denies harm done is the worse-possible thing, and
Journalists should heighten their Vigilance with respect to such.
