Television is the Hegelian synthesis between Motion pictures and Radio. Television is used to subliminally indoctrinate the viewer to reject the morality and law that God has given to mankind. It is a psychological tool to de-Christianize the viewer. Organized religion is seen as an obstacle to creating a secular humanist society. A humanist society (Babylonian society) is the only acceptable society for a world controlled by one over-arching government.
Theodor Adorno, a researcher on the effects radio has on the psychology of man stated the real purpose for television in this way:
"All television programming contains, first, an overt message, referring to the plot, characters, scene, etc. It is in this overt content that successful formula are employed to guarantee viewership. But within this overt content, there lies a 'hidden message' that is less obvious, and which represents a particular moral theme for purposes of indoctrination."
They can lead the viewer of television away from their Creator and His laws, but it should be remembered, "none shall be exempted from the justice and the laws of God." (D&C 107:84)
