Breaking (The American Family) Bad

“America cannot continue to lead the family of nations around the world if we suffer the collapse of the family here at home”

Mitt Romney

Exerting its influence well beyond the national frontiers, the idyllic American family has represented the ideal of happiness and security for a good part of the 20th century. Among its most valuable possessions we habitually find a fridge, a car or two, waving neighbours, smiling kids, a leafy backyard, a beckoning driveway, a chest-thumping husband, a home-chained wife, and last but by no means least, a glowing television set. Television is to the American family what the place of worship is to the faithful, a source of spiritual fulfillment offering a sense of belonging. Through the television screen the family is prescribed its material obligations, existential aspirations and ethical standards. The anchorman supplants the priest; community life makes way to talk shows, and advertising replaces biological needs with induced compulsions. »
