Television and Us

In some nations there are nearly the same number of television sets as there are houses. Television inevitably has a strong cultural influence. The concepts conveyed through the combination of hearing and seeing can be potent. Advertisers, spending enormous sums of money, apparently accept that this is so.

The forcefulness of this medium can't help but be of interest and concern to us. The Christian Scientist, growing in his apprehension of the primacy of thought in determining the way people feel and act, necessarily has a concern for those things that influence thinking. Therefore we should be awake to both the pros and the cons of the electronic media.
