We live in a generation of immediate gratification. We care about what appeals to the primal hormone — things that men so desperately desire as money, sex, drugs, rebellion, vulgarity, violence, lies. In other words, sin.
No, this article has nothing to do with religion but only with pure common sense. Sin, in the literal text, is the pleasure that one receives by acting out in an inhuman or a demoralizing manner. Basically, it's like eating candy when you should be eating a balanced diet because of your medical condition — only on a "moralistic" scale rather than medical one.
For example, a certain celebrity recently caused an unnecessary uproar about her performance at The Video Music Awards. The entire race of supposedly "the most intelligent animal species on Earth" lost their ever-loving minds. Every human in America clamored on about Miley Cyrus's failed, porn-star dancing.
This evidence clearly shows how mankind is falling apart. Even The Stallion staff has been sucked into the fiasco.
There are three viewpoints to every situation: The pros, the cons, and the IDGAF's. Normally, I'm the IDGAF but for some reason the situation is bothering me than it should. Fortunately, I am not alone.
Others have found their way to be either disgusted by her actions or have become drooling zombies worshiping the Barbie Doll reject that twerks. Personally, I found Miley’s performance highly disgusting and fail to see the appeal of the matter.
Others proclaim, "Well, she's 20. She can do whatever she wants and if she makes a mistake, big whoop, she's young." Granted, she is young, and apparently the dance she performed is a current pop-culture thing. Yet, that does not excuse the fact that what Miley did was not inappropriate.
It's no secret that the VMA's are known for their disturbing adult content. So it's not the performance that's disgusting; it's the event in general that's disgraceful.
The Video Music Awards was meant to be for a family audience, but several individuals have taken the liberty of promoting, basically, what is wrong with children today. Artists have always been ridiculed for their explicit actions, but whenever they did those things, they were at their own concerts. Not on live national T.V.
Even the most profound artist had some class when they were out in public — unless they were knee-deep intoxicated by some drug. Then they were just lucky to make it up on stage.
Regardless of who you are, you should understand your limitations. Everyone has limitations in both the physical world and the mental realm. Even if you think you’re God, you still need to set a limit on what you do to keep yourself in check and not hurt those around you.
"Just because you can doesn't mean you should,” Sherrilyn Kenyon wisely summed up about individuals who possess great power. People like Miley Cyrus, who pretty much pump the blood through society, must realize the power they have over their culture — regardless of how old they are.
One should not blame the controversial celebrity entirely. As mentioned before, humans are somehow attracted to the concept of just not caring — especially, when she did that horrific rapid movement of her backside as she bent over. Even the smallest cells can affect the whole body.
To be a part of a culture, one must either be the sheep that follow the masses, or be the wolf that does something that causes a massive change in the order of things. Sometimes, the effect can be good and beneficial to the group. Yet, there are things that can slowly progress that will eventually destroy the whole flock.
What Miley did overall was no doubt a wake-up call. She pointed out how sexually driven our side of society is. There's not a second that goes by when the average citizen will not get bombarded by something that promotes perhaps the most popular sin ever — sex.
Miley, in fact, did it for the attention, not because she did not care. She wanted to be talked about and would go as far as looking like a heroin addict rubbing her butt up against Beetle Juice. The world is aware of what is taking place. It's just sad to see how numb the species has become.
