Let the good flourish and the evil perish. This is the principle held by many film and TV directors. Nevertheless, opposed to this opinion, I firmly believe that TVs and movies should sometimes break up this stiff notion in order to exhibit a more authentic world to audience.

It sounds plausible that movies and televisions, as two major types of mass media, should offer the public proper moral orientations. If kind people don’t get rewards and bad people are still out of the law, people, especially children, may cast doubts on their conception of goodness and badness. However, as for me, televisions and movies cannot always show an ideal society to the public, and reversely, mass media should show something closer to reality to a moderate degree. My belief can be exemplified as follows.

First and foremost, there is no clear definition to bad or good. It is true that even the most virtuous  people can do something extremely terrible and vice versa, so it is reckless to decide a person’s result merely according to “bad” or “good”. Just cite the movies Saw and Batman-Dark Knight as two examples. The old man in Saw designs a variety of cruel means to torture bad people such as cold-hearted insurance managers and disloyal doctors. Actually he insists that he removes rascals from our society, but simultaneously, he is considered to be a twisted and abnormal killer by policemen. The more dramatic thing is that in the movie Dark Knight, Batman certainly makes great sacrifices for citizens, but those people think batman is the root of their hardships. Accordingly, sometimes the concept of bad and good is so ambiguous that movies and televisions cannot convict people accurately, and their arbitrary and rude determinations may mislead the public.

Another equally important reason is that if people are convinced of the theory of “good” and “bad”, people may probably take the rewards and punishments for granted.  If citizens all naively think criminals will be punished one day, they will not take some practical measures to fight against those bad people. For example, once I saw a thief running into an alleyway and someone is exclaiming, “Catching the thief!” Nonetheless, no one really took any action because they claimed that bad people would eventually be sent to jails in the future. Therefore, the exaggerations of the punishments and rewards in TV programs and movies can directly lead to people’s indifference to violent events and glorious virtues.

In a word, from the reasons mentioned above, we may safely arrive at the conclusion that although sometimes TVs and movies should show the positive morality to the public, they can never overemphasize that good people will be rewarded and bad people will be punished to the degree that people will deviate from  morality and become apathetic to criminal behaviors.
