The Benefits of Limiting TV

Parents Urged Again to Limit TV

"Undermining the role of parents has been a strategy marketers have exploited to sell their brands through the development of "kids only" products and marketing themes.

Kiddie marketing often strives for the nag factor", an actual measurement by the advertising industry of the extent to which an ad drives a child to pester the folks about a purchase." - Jamie Court

"The average American child sees 40,000 advertisements a year on television.

Comparing the marketing of today with the marketing of the past is like comparing the BB gun to the smart bomb.

All aspects of children's lives - their health, education, creativity, and values - are at risk of being compromised by their status in the marketplace." - Dr. Susan Linn, psychiatry instructor, Harvard Medical School

"You hoped your little girl's Disney princess obsession was harmless, didn't you!

It will not have escaped you, Mothers of America, that Disney Princess' rarely slay dragons, play sports, pilot jets or do open-heart surgery.

I was not thrilled when my 3-year-old informed me that she wants to be "a pwincess" when she grows up.

"You are a commoner," my 3-year-old shrieked, and adjusting her tiara ran off to watch Disney Princess Enchanted Tales." - Rosa Brooks 03/08





Children are being taught that everything is for sale;

desired "things" are more value than intangibles like relationships;

providers of the desired "things" love you and want you to be happy;

and ……… desired "things" will make you happy.

The American Academy of Pediatrics states that children under the age of eight years are unable to understand the intent of advertising and accept all advertisements as the truth.

The 'nag factor' marketing strategy depends on manipulation of children.

Lucy Hughes and her colleagues at Initiative Media, with the help of child psychologists, analyzed nagging behavior in children.

20 to 40% of all purchases adults make are due to nagging children.

Disney "Princess" franchise rakes in $4 billion.


"There is an association between the number of hours that the television is on at home and early childhood aggression." - Catherine Taylor

"Little girls who want to be princesses and wear cute little clothes are assuming the classic stereotyping of the many misguided families who believe that little girls should be the lesser handmaidens of boys who too frequently grow up to be boys."- Ralph Mitchell 04/08

"To minimize the role of gatekeepers, corporations often seek to undermine the authority of parents.

In their advertisements, corporations portray parents, often in jocular veins, as ignorant, out of date and out of touch with the children's reality, and they frequently ridicule parental concerns for health and safety." - Linda Coco

1992 to 1997 Amount of money spent on marketing to children doubles, from $6.2 billion to $12.7 billion.

At this time:

- American children influence purchases totaling over $600 billion a year .

- American children spend almost forty hours a week outside of school consuming televised media.

- 65% of American children eight to eighteen have a television in their bedroom as do 32% of children two to seven and 26% of children under two.

- The marketing industry has found that American babies are requesting brands as soon as they speak.

- In 2000, a federal report from the General Accounting Office called marketing in schools a growth industry.

- More American children recognize the Budweiser Frogs than Smokey the Bear.

- 85% of American parents would like to see children's television programs advertisement free.

- Commercial marketing tactics of fast food have breed epidemic levels of childhood obesity, diabetes and kidney stones.


"The aggressive marketing of fast food and confectionery to children does influence their dietary choices early in life, and it puts them at greater risk of becoming obese or overweight later in life.

A major concern is childhood diabetes.

General practitioners are seeing more children than ever before with diabetes, and that's a disease associated with poor diet and lack of exercise.

Children can be extremely vulnerable to television advertising promoting fast food."- Verity Newnham

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
