Morality Play

I just want to say I cringe every time we do the moral lesson stuff on the show. It doesn't feel right for me because it feels shallow and fake considering the show is a product of commercialism. At the same time, what right do we have to suddenly become the moral authority? The show is foremost a game show so why not leave it at that? It is a reality contest so why not leave the judgment to the people to root for the contestant whose value system they can most relate with? It's really making me uneasy cause if I have my way, I'd rather we stick to the game and leave the preaching to the moralists.

Just letting it out. :)
