A lot of media in recent times has focussed on promoting good morals and relaying profound messages where the viewer is subjected to a whole new way of thinking from a series of events that have happened within a film/book/song/etc, but where do you stand on this? Are you comfortable having some person that you've never met dictating what is considered to be "good values" and to what extent do you think this actually occurs in the media? Do these messages leave an impact on those who are subjected to them? Is this impact beneficial? Do you find the advertising of morals to be more prominent in one form of media than any other? Discuss!

If they don't push it in my face I'm good with it.

Like DARE I have a problem with because they push it in your face that you shouldn't be a druggie but it's not like I think getting high all the time is healthy.

But it's necessary to have a moral, because that's one part of a successful movie-watching marathon, is to feel like you learned something while being entertained. It's a subtle subconscious reaction but it makes it all the better.

I don't care if someone wants to promote what they think are good values if they can back them up, but I don't always read a book (and certainly don't watch a movie) to get a lesson in moral philosophy.

Hm. Now that I think about it, a lot of books I've read do have some amount of philosophy in them. Like, not Socrates, but musings on life and things like that. I guess that doesn't bother me because it's usually coming from a character or narrator or some other source that fits in with the story and I know that it's there to help flesh out the character or story. Or at least that's what it's there for primarily.

Yeah, I guess it comes down to context. If a moral isn't presented to me in a heavy-handed way I'm okay with it, but I'd rather just try to get your moral from the story.
