Twisted trio of Hollywood

2017-11-07 06:00

DECADENCE and immorality are part and parcel of Hollywood culture.

Harvey Weinstein and his predecessor Hugh Hefner were just purveyors of the smut that has infiltrated every nook and cranny of our society.

Allegations of excess against these two are not new. It was the silence of many actresses who were lured into this web with a promise of stardom that led to this sexual exploitation.

Together with Roman Polanski, the trio represent a twisted group of filmmakers and publishers whose sole aim was to christen a war-weary nation that needed counselling after many years in conflict during World War 2, Vietnam and the Gulf Wars, by giving them a visual feast that impaired moral upliftment to this day.

In its stead, we now have a world where sexual activity has become a recreational pastime, supplanting the age-old moral parameters where family life was paramount.
