Thinking Nurse

This blog will reflect my interests in learning disabilities, nursing, nursing theory, philosophy and politics and my general interests in the arts and literature. (Nursing is an art as well as a science!) Philosophy and nursing have been intrinsically linked since the days of Socrates, his mother was a midwife, and taught him everything he knew!

The Devil Makes Work For Idle Thumbs

This BBC News Report caught my attention.

Any suggestions for the titles and themes of the games they might bring out?

'Vatican-land' a variation on sim city?

... But on a serious note, how many cultural products promote aggression and selfishness? It's all part of the subliminal bourgeois meta-narrative.

In super mario brothers you are chasing and collecting as many gold coins as possible to score points.

In sonic the hedgehog you are chasing and collecting as many gold rings as possible to score points.

In Grand Theft Auto, the aim of the game is to kill as many people as possible and steel their money and property. In the newest version, you can spend the money on new clothes, fast food, new houses, hookers, guns and cars.

On Big brother, housemates stab each other in the back in the pursuit of money.

Rap music promotes violence and materialism (bling, gold chains, women, cars etc as status symbols)

They all seem to be pushing the same decadent, individualistic, hedonistic, shallow, materialistic moral values.
