TV’s Sentimental Crud

Squishy TV shows, from The Voice to The Talk, keep lying to us with the message that we’re Able and Strong and Good Enough. We’re dreamers whose dreams can come true. They even intimate that we can create, and are worthy of, some kind of national utopia. It’s a false edification. It’s part of a therapeutic culture which mostly ignores the horrors of life. It would NEVER believe in something like the judgment of God on the United States. Its TV shows never explain, cannot explain, why we are Good Enough.
