MTV vs. Martial Law
'Tis the season to get political, so I thought MTV's latest outcry might stir up a good conversation (or, in the very least, bring some conspiracy theorists out of the woodwork).
The popular music network has recently released commercials depicting modern day Martial Law in the United States, making comparisons to 20th century/WWII concentration camps:
As much as MTV is a medium for America's youth, their opinions, and their politics, I was a little taken aback by these commercials. They're certainly thought provoking, but it's sort of shocking to see such a large entity produce an ad/concept that might otherwise be labelled conspiracy hogwash.
Should there be a concern over the state of our nation when MTV is warning us? Or do you think the commericals was done for shock value, to put an edge on an otherwise dulling teen-fueled, reality show-centric network?
