Currently I am a high school teacher and "making vice chic" is exactly what has happened to our culture.
Young women are agressive in an fruitless path. Most teenagers are numbed by their phones, iPods, facebook, myspace. And their parents are working so hard just to break even, who has the time to show them anything but consummerism but the "media" whose hunger cannot be satisfied or filled.
None of the teenagers I see think they have the power to make a change. It isn't as though they don't care. They don't see a direction to place their energy for change. They are not organized.
I am speaking in generalities as well. Because there are many young that are far more progressive and organized than I ever will be.
If only we could make pursuing knowledge chic.
