In a world, in which in a daylight time in the prosperous and silent city of Newtown someone is shooting children, the end of the world has already been started. I can’t find other worlds for description. Provincial little town, quiet and peaceful; prosperous society; parents working in large companies and… so senseless violence, shooting and massacre ... All of this can not be described by logic, though this was not the first case of mass shootings in the United States and in other countries.

However, if you look closely at the state of our society, it is very much becomes clear. What can you expect from a society where the main value is the consumer but not the human? What can you expect from a society where totally destroyed all traditional values, including family? What can you expect from a society in which the ultra liberal activists say: “Everything is possible! Do what you want! This is your freedom! We do not need old boring values."? Now I mean the society of any civilized country. It’s a global problem.

In this case, instead of the old social values people got the new ones. A big part of them is in 24h TV propaganda of consumption, violence (even in modern cartoons), the promotion of immorality and lack of culture. The list goes on and on.

One thing is clear - society is sick and sick very hard. The worst thing is that all these "new" ideals people get since childhood and throughout the life. Turn on one of your 500 TV channels and you'll see it in a second. Television guys show as a sweet life (so called “dolce vita”), where all are successful, where all have the luxury homes and yachts, where all are the millionaires and who is not a millionaire, then there is the answer - it means he’s a loser. Then they have a break in showing us “sweet” things, they show us an endless violence.
