MTV's Laguna Beach and the Decline of the American Empire
8 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This program could be an ingenious strategic weapon, were it created by terrorists to facilitate the eventual disintegration of the moral fabric of America.

"Laguna Beach" and its ugly sister show, "The Hills" comprise a layer of bile accumulated atop an age of media diarrhea that is severely damaging the values system of a generation of kids. The mere concept of delivering "fabricated reality" to a youth demographic before they are adequately media-literate and intellectually equipped to make such a critical distinction presents a set of truly frightening possibilities...and the fact that it's justified as mindless, harmless fun is arguably the most cynical and insidious part of it.

The fallout is that we're going to see a lot of severe depression and a marked lack of ambition in the forthcoming generation, when the crushing blow of reality takes hold - a reality in which their media-fed perceptions of automatic entitlement to celebrity and wealth are challenged.

Were I a parent, I would honestly consider putting a content filter on MTV so as to spare my kids the surgery-free frontal lobotomy provided by this type of content.

In fact, I would sooner buy my kids subscriptions to the Spice Channel than let them watch this crap.
