This week’s Scandal of the Week is brought to you by NJ governor, Chris Christie.
Governor Chris Christie, “BridgeGate Scandal” – Just another of the inconsequential controversies to which the media continually treats the American public.
Make no mistake: it’s not because the countless scandals and “gates” are not important.
It’s not because the actors are usually guilty.
Then why are these scandals more of a distraction these days?
Because there are usually no consequences beyond the political perp resigning from office–if that.
Then why all of the media attention?
One reason: like it or not, leaders are a reflection of the society they represent. Voters can moan all they want about the criminal who represents them, but sorry: he’s just a reflection of American society at large. No better, occasionally worse.
Reporting 24/7 on the antics of the political cartel is a form of inoculating the American public to the crime, corrosion and corruption that surrounds them. This societal sludge pit is mirrored in their political class.
After awhile, a defense mechanism kicks in. Americans tend to shut down the constant barrage of sleaze being slung at them by the Corporate Media’s scandal reports. While society waxes worse and worse, the people forced to live in such a cesspool retreat into sports, video games and social media. This sad situation also contributes to the “Everyone is doing it–even our leaders!” mentality.
And that’s one of the reasons we’re seeing more scandals and less results from the constant reporting of them.
IS the reader convinced the many scandals he reads about is proof that the “system works“?
THERE is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
