Mediocre and Corrupt Generation

So giving the fact that at several of my book signings, I’ve seen this plenty of times… our generation has been going down-slope!

You might not see it now, but TV will play a role if there is a downfall of the USA. The fact remains there will always be four groups of people in this world. In ancient times, the Greeks and Romans measured their country by a person’s level of understanding (or mental capacity) in the following groups: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta!

Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta

  1. The Alpha is the first. They are the leaders running the country, usually the doctors, scientists, political leaders, attorneys, etc.
  2. The next group of people is the Beta. They are second in the group and have some knowledge in different fields. They usually work for the Alpha ( like clerks, messengers, secretaries, teachers, etc.)
  3. The third group is the majority, the Gamma. This large group of people is a group of consumers (usually materialistic) mostly with a shallow living!
  4. Finally, a downgrade from the Gamma are the Deltas. These are the people who don’t care about their lives or the lives of others (mostly criminals and drug consumers)

I could say a few more words about these  four groups, but I am concentrating now on the majority group of Gamma people. The group you fall into begins early, just as most teenagers are consumed into a corrupt generation. One of the many reasons the expansion of the mind is stopped abruptly is no further than your living room television! Just by switching on the TV, millions of teenagers have the opportunity to access television shows such as “Jersey Shore”, “True Life”, “16 and Pregnant” , “My Super Sweet 16” etc. Teenagers even as young as the age of 10 have become intoxicated by the dirt of several of these reality shows! As a society we are to blame. The VH1 and MTV are networks that promote these shallow television shows and then cater to a generation that has become unmotivated and too lazy to think! The original idea of MTV was to promote music videos to the public; now it has moved onto a foundation of sick reality shows and is viewed by children! Reality shows such as “Jersey Shore” portray continuous partying, drinking, and promiscuity as the only way to have fun.

As young teenagers see this, they begin to make the wrong decisions and revolve their lives around idols of luxury. Our young generation, raised on reality garbage, now believes that they are ‘adults’ having teen sex, drinking, consuming drugs, etc.

Additionally, another reality show, “My Super Sweet 16,” emphasizes materialism! The series consists of rich girls having several thousand dollars invested into their sixteenth birthday party, traditionally called “sweet 16”. Parents become frustrated, as their own daughter wants the exact party, but cannot receive it. And the ones making money off these shows are the brainless networks promoting them. 

MTV operates by enforcing the shallow lifestyle of materialism, immaturity, and judgmental material. People are pulled away from what really matters and become consumers with the slogan, “I want it all and I want it now!”

The economy could collapse, because young people now think they can party their lives away and not work or receive an education. Later in life they will realize that this is not the case…

In my view, the problem (which not many people realize at this time) runs deeper then it really seems!  These shows are not merely reality TV. These shows have an impact on who will run our country in the years to come! As this generation grows older and live their lives as full adult lifestyle, the reality shows they have always seen push them into a lower lifestyle. If these shows grow worse and worse each year, to keep the people entertained, the generations to come could be a downfall for the entire country.

I believe that as this domino effect continues to take place, people of this country would not have the patience to work anymore. Americans want fewer hours and higher pay. This would mean that foreigners have an opportunity that they would not let pass. The truth is American people buy brains! Foreigners from other countries are offered money to live in the US to build up the country. Several take the work force, stabilizing the country on the costs of the Gamma people! This is extremely possible as many foreigners offer more work and less pay, concluding to a second Great Depression- where many American people could land on the streets! 

Sure there are ways to stop this from happening for example: parental control of the television. But can parents really take the time and sit there, making sure their teenager will not watch anything? No. I believe the government should interfere. But, anything that involves the government will take a while to get into full swing. Problems would also appear. Americans people would fight for their television freedom. So… let them.

In conclusion, if the Alpha and Beta (higher educated people) are not fully interfering by forcing changes towards the laws and restrictions, then this scenario could possibly come to life! These television networks that play a small role in the economy might be a result in our entire country running into an open knife!

This is something for you to think about, and I hope you all might put this to your consideration.


East Lake Showcase

Hey guys! The other day- me, along with several other young authors, were at a showcase in East Lake Library!

Maradonia Audio Books!

Audio Book (1) of the Maradonia Saga,  Maradonia and the Seven Bridges,  is soon ready for release!

 Several of my books are published and I am thankful that I am able to present to you my First Audio Book from the first six-pack book series of the Maradonia Saga  with the Title: Maradonia and the Seven Bridges. I began writing at the age of ten years and it took me three years to finish this novel. The Maradonia Sage starts basically as an everyday story. A girl called Maya and a boy called Joey found a mysterious place in a forbidden area which opened the way to a World between the Worlds.  TheLand ofMaradonia!

With their arrival in Maradonia a prophecy is fulfilled and overnight their simple life in the small city of Oceanside has changed completely because they are thrust into a strange and perilous world. A world filled with magic and power. Mystery, murder, deceit, revenge, conspiracy, theft, but also faith, knowledge, wisdom and passion percolate in this thriller…and keeps the reader as well as the listener on the edge of their seat. The questions remain: Can Maya and Joey take up the mantle of the prophecy of the kingdom of Light? Can they conquer the Seven Bridges of Test and Temptations? Can they change the fate of Maradonia? The future of the legendary kingdom of Maradonia rest in their hands… and one more question! Is the final Battle between the armies of Light and Darkness unavoidable when the teenagers secure the powerful Key to the Underworld and Apollyon, the king of the Evil Empire as well as his two sons Abbadon and Plouton are unable to enter their own kingdom?  This is Maradonia Dynamite! I believe, we have an absolutely exciting Audio–Version of Book One in our hands and I hope you will enjoy listening to the Original Maradonia Music Soundtrack as well as to the interesting narrator’s voice who will tell you all about the sweeping epic journey of Maya and Joey through a fantastical world of magic and strange powers.

Maradonia and the Law of Blood

Sorry for the quality. I wish I could use one of the producer’s cameras. 😉 Enjoy! Gloria ♥

Apollyon, king of the Evil Empire, in towering rage of fury and agonizing pain over the disappearance of his beloved son Prince Abbadon, commanded his new Rawken Army to attack the kingdom of Tyronia. His younger son, Plouton, convinced Apollyon that King Joey of Tyronia had killed Abbadon, the crown prince of the Evil Empire with Defender, a supernatural weapon, known as the Key to the Underworld.
The shadows of war had touched the seven sovereign kingdoms of the legendary world. The Warrior Queen of Selinka, Queen Maya, tried to unite the kingdoms with the help of her brother Joey. Both of them knew that the only way to win the war against the Evil Empire was Unity, but then…
Just after the siblings had killed the savage humanoids, the Orcs, Graul and Brutus, sudden disaster… strikes!
The city officials of Magadan presented Maya and Joey the Drink of Victory…
….But the chalices were filled with deadly poison…

Maradonia Newsletter July-August

Glory Extra (July - August)



Dear Friends and Partners!

       I wanted to write earlier but I was heavily involved in the ongoing production that I never found the time to give another update concerning our latest production work during this hot summer!    However, I had book signings, several editorial changes in the screenplay had to be made and since the middle of July we were practically on a daily base -even on Saturdays and Sundays- in the Studios and produced for the  Maradonia Movie the Music & Sound Track with over six hours.

 The Maradonia  Theme Song  is produced.

 I believe the Maradonia Theme Song is indeed a first class production! We will use a contemporary version of the Maradonia Song for my first AUDIO BOOK, which was also produced and finished last week.     I am so thankful that I am able to present my first AUDIO BOOK with the title: Maradonia and the Seven Bridges to an audience of middle readers and young adults.

   The AUDIO BOOK will be offered on 10 CD’s (11 Hours and 20 Minutes) and this audio version is a completely new edited version of my first novel which I began writing at the age of ten years. Soon we will have specific information on our own website, Maradonia.com, how to purchase and download the new  Audio Book (1).

  The Maradonia Saga starts basically as an everyday story. A girl called Maya and a boy called Joey found a mysterious place in a forbidden area which opened the way to a World between the Worlds. The Land of Maradonia!

   With their arrival in Maradonia a prophecy is fulfilled and overnight their simple life in the small city of Oceanside has changed completely because they are thrust into a strange and perilous world.
