What are the most important cultural trends influencing our future behavior
in the USA, the values presented by the media, not only in entertainment, but also in reality shows, newscasts, etc. i include video games, multi-player, all sorts of these, music, movies, and entertainements and pages on the web, advertising. these currently insidiously, by connotation and inference (and occasionally clearly) promote a set of attitudes about education and learning, ethics and success, "spinning" information, cultureal differences (on "racial", national, religious, economic, sex&gender, other ethnic groups) stereotypes, these have, i believe, a greater infludnce on most americans than their peers, their community and national leaders, their teachers and people at their jobs, and often, greater than their families, in terms of values, ethics, morals, beliefs, ideas, and outlook on the world, other people, issues, expectations, goals.....

Are you optimistic or pessimistic, and why?
(my first time on the website here,!} is the optimistic-pessimistic 2-choice or a scle? dependent on your personality tendencies (genetic), &/or your experience? a choice, or an automatic reaction? (and I'm listing 2-choice questions! hah!) the situation will influence the answer, or are you asking about "in general, over your lifetime so far..." or how we identify? i haven't had a chance toread the other resonses yet, not look at the videos related to the question yet. but hope that a time limit on the "conversation" is just for responses, and will still be here when i have time tomorrow to see the things posted by others! (have not had time to look up how everything works here,yet, either!) it's a fascinating subject. i'm not sure (no scientist), but i think a strong tendency may be hardwired into some people by their genes. i think of myself as neither -- that optimistic would be unrealistic, and pessimistic rather depressing. i prefer to think i am concerned but hopeful.... (not having faith everything will turn out ok, but working toward the possibilities of better..)
