Character is often regarded as a means to judge the quality of a person and their moral values. I thought about this as a read the blog on the Borat Syndrome when my name was mentioned. I finally figured out why I love the film so much. It is a perfect cross-section of the sheer ugliness that make up the moral stature of so many people in our lovely US and A. I now invite you to watch as the people go and sing along as if it was a Disney Sing-A-Long special.
Surely, with this kind of debauchery and social degradation in the film media, it won’t be long until sex everywhere you look. Children hate their parents, other races, any sort of work, and their bosses. The politicians will be crooked. As they try to swindle, cheat and steal not only from the people but from each other as well. (Not to mention remaining stagnant during their term, so they do not alienate their constituency so they are re-elected.)
While I do think a serious look at the general moral character of the public needs to be addressed, although I am not suggesting overall moral change. (I want to keep my rights and my firearms.*) I believe this must be addressed on much more a personal level. You know, like prayer in school and spirituality when in the public domain, left up to the individual. The whole point of the “film” is not to anger. Merely to empower the mind, so our unpleasant qualities can be corrected. All I am saying is simply if you don’t study history, you are bound to repeat it.
