Pathetic state of entertainment

I think the “breast-baring” by Janet Jackson demonstrates not immorality but the pathetic state of what is called entertainment in America. In Europe and other parts of the world, nudity is openly displayed ” even on TV ” but it isn’t gratuitous, thrown in for shock effect, as a substitute for true talent.

As for morality, I find that for some, it is all about sexuality, and they can lie, cheat, steal, wage preemptive war and destroy the natural environment without so much as a pang of conscience.
