Cheap Love is No Love

Emerging artists strike gold when they embark on love songs. But they never declare the "love is patient and kind" line of reasoning. They become famous on the back of thrill-seeking roller-coaster love-is-a-battlefield rationale. They make it by proseletyzing instant gratification.

"Sex sells" is an ambiguity that should be clarified to become "People sell sex to get rich."

For this reason, today's movies place the cart before the horse. Chick flicks (okay, "romantic movies") begin with torrid, no-strings attached sex between the main protagonists, only to throw in emotional fondness just in time for end credits to roll. And musicians sing the aesthetic and hedonistic praises of real and hypothetical targets of their lust. A viewer/listener searches high and low in vain for the place of values and character, but finds everything else but these in overabundance. Even "heroism  of the wine bottle" trumps moral qualities as a desirable trait for romantic partners. Meanwhile, consumerist preoccupation, visual appeal, sexual athleticism and even sarcasm and antisocial tendencies are hyped to the point of oversupply. Don't even get me started on the barely-dressed dancers assaulting the viewer with neurotic crotch-thrusting displays.

These are not the foundations of stable societies. Clearly.

Of course there's an agenda behind all this. The Powers That Be recognize the threat posed to their New World Order designs by true love. (Elsewhere I have discussed all all-out attack being targeted at the church, the state and society at large in the interest of One World Government.) Mass Media 'entertainment' is but one weapon in the enemy's arsenal.

The family's foundations sit squarely in the scope of these revolutionaries, a target for destruction. To destroy the family means to destroy communities and societies eventually, based on the building block theory of Individual > Family > Community > Country > Humanity. their chosen method for destroying the family takes the dilution of real love or its replacement entirely with something else that can be made to pass for real love. 

But take it from 1 Corinthians 13, and live it:

4 [Love] suffereth long, and is kind; [Love] envieth not; [love] vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things

  2. You just said it at it is, life is being destroyed by altering what truly love is.And you know what, we all cheering as we head to the slaughter house.

    1. Thank you for reading Sinia Safi! I'm glad you see the truth too.

  3. Yes, sex does sell and it always will. The top artist's can't claim 'love is patient...' because many of them have broken marriages and relationships, the here 'today and gone tomorrow type'. It is just a shame that the loyal fans don't seem to see it. This is a very good post.

    1. Thanks, Rum-Punch Drunk. You also make a good point about celebrity relationships today. I'd missed that (important) link. Good observation.
