Her i det liberaldemokratiske vesten oplever jeg det som far til to som utroligt vanskeligt at holde øje med, hvad underholdsningsindustrien forsøger at indpode dem med. Problemet kendes også i Rusland, men her har et medlem af Dumaen fremsat forslag om, at man opretter en sund TV-kanal for unge. Fra Russia Today:
Viktor Vodolatskiy of the United Russia parliamentary caucus explained that society was overwhelmed by the promotion of violence and it was in the national interest to have a special channel that would push traditional values to the younger generation…
He went on to explain that young people are the most passionate part of society and therefore they are the easiest to manipulate through information technology. Over 90 percent of ethnic and religious conflicts and political protests take place mostly among the young. They are as vulnerable to the negative effects of the information environment as they are to alcoholism and drug addiction, Vodolatskiy said.
