AMERICA’S CREATION OF THE SUPER SOLDIER
Let’s face it America has a very violent culture. Look through your cable TV’s offerings for tonight, the violence, murder, wars (past, present, future) is phenomenal. Besides the Barbie doll situational comedies, and Dwarf lumberjack reality shows, only violence and murder fill up your remaining selections. I think our male children and likely many females will take the third option. TV censorship has been a downhill slide since Elvis Presley shook his legs on the Ed Sullivan show.
From the FCC webpage:
Obscene content does not have protection by the First Amendment. For content to be ruled obscene, it must meet a three-pronged test established by the Supreme Court: It must appeal to an average person’s prurient interest; depict or describe sexual conduct in a “patently offensive” way; and, taken as a whole, lack serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value.
Indecent content portrays sexual or excretory organs or activities in a way that does not meet the three-prong test for obscenity.
Profane content includes “grossly offensive” language that is considered a public nuisance.
[I think murder, blood, neck chopping, and every creepy way to kill humans is all the above.]
However, the problem was supposed to have been solved with the TV and Video games rating systems. The television industry controls the rating system, isn’t that amusing. Even so the few family friendly rated shows are being drowned out by the preponderance of violent and adult audience rated programs by double. Many scientist and professors signed petitions over the past couple of decades decrying the effects on children, but the Liberal and Balanced news media and the Television industry cried the findings weren’t conclusive enough. Cut the TV off and get in the floor and play with your children.
I played a lot of adventure games years ago, and you went about doing various missions or quest to gain prizes; such as armor, weapons and gold. The quest was most often; “the camp is running short of food supplies. Go kill 50 Hell-deer to help us.” Or “We are being threatened by the hordes of rabid razorhogs to the southwest”. Help us and go kill 70 razorhogs.” There was no end to this murdering of various inoffensive beast. Nevertheless, your killed with sword, hatchet, bow, or gun on and on. I recall hearing younger players often chat about having been playing “XXX” for 14 hours non-stop. Kids play these games all weekend, until late hours of the night. They skip school to play special events with friends. I know, I took off from work occasionally. LOL.
Sports in America is no longer a leisurely baseball game or a football game with light armor with an occasional pile on. It now consists of announcers sounding like carnival hawkers emphasizing brutal hits, and injuries. Football, hockey, wrestling, boxing, and even basketball is about violent confrontations now, much less about skill or sportsmanship. Regardless of the medical evidence of permanent brain injuries resulting in some sports, we demand hard hits, body slams, power punches, and bone crushing tackles. But every day or weekend players like good gladiator’s did, risk permanent harm for your entertainment, much as if in an arena in ancient Rome.
Gun control is impossible while the entertainment violence has increased our threshold of acceptability. There is unique connection between Gun Control and out addiction to violence. We, like the proverbial “how to cook a frog so he doesn’t hop out the pot story” (very slowly turn up the heat) We, Americans have become numb and unaffected by the increase in violence in our nation. Nightly our news media promotes a violent occurrence somewhere over and over irresponsibly, while failing to give a real evening of current world news.
America has been at war almost continuously since prior to our constitution. As the 1984 slogan; “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.” Our Big Brother or Big mother next year, has us happily hoodwinked. A fat pig ready for the unknown slaughter. The peace movement died, but there is always hope. Those angry Bible thumping Baptist ministers were right all along.

Thus, enter the breeding of the next generation of the super soldier. This little sampling of violence in American culture is not only affecting the psychology and violent tolerance of this generation, but it’s changing their very brain structure, genes are being turned on and off, and the inheritable DNA of their future offspring will be affected. You say WHAT? Is this an illuminati, CFR, One World Order, or CIA/NSA conspiracy? Hmm, maybe. But the results are the problem. We may be our own enemy by giving into self-gratification and our baser nature. And every American is guilty. WAKE UP AMERICA!
Why would I imply such a crazy thing:
“The old model of the gene, which dates back to the discovery of DNA in 1953, says that our genes are fixed and unchanging. From eye color, height, and other physical characteristics to behaviors like criminality or saintly acts of kindness, genetics strongly implied that we have minimal control over our biological destiny.” To a large extent this may be true, but when it comes to behavior and disease susceptibility, there is much more to the story.
The study of changes in gene activity, not only based on DNA sequence, but also on life experiences — epigenetics — shows that a person’s experience may directly affect their DNA.” Copyright © 2016 TheHuffingtonPost.com, Inc.

Google Epigenetics, or search You Tube. Look at the newer data, not 10 years ago when it was just making a stirring. Of course Epigenetics offers many many positive possibilities for improvement in our lives and for future generations. You got the whole world in your hands. Make Peace Possible. (Jim Peace)
