Have you watched Squid Game on Netflix yet?
If not, here is some advice-don’t, and if you do, prepare for some serious trauma.
It is hard to comprehend how messed up in the head the writers of the show must be, and even worse must be whoever approved its production!
The theme of the irreverent thriller is bloody murder of characters, who only have three options in life: Die while playing childish games, go back home and wallow in debt and poverty; or, win billions to offset their debts and stroll off into the sunset.
Many things have changed in the world in the 21st century, among them, the normalization of extreme violence in society.
While we are all stan for creativity, we must avoid crossing the line in the name of producing blockbusters.
We may not pick up guns and start popping one another off after watching just one violent show, but pro-brutality subconscious messages are embedded in our brains over time.
If caution is not taken, 20 years from now, the world might turn into a real-life Gotham City, with no Batman to rescue us.
