People don't necessarily know that they're taking on a worldview, or absorbing ideas [while watching television]. It doesn't necessarily seem like [it's happening], but it definitely does. I find it very easy to get sucked in. It starts to affect the way you see the world.
Win Butler, 2007, Pitchfork

I feel like I've been living in a city with no children in it, a garden left for ruin by a millionaire inside a private prison.
Arcade Fire, City with no children

For death has crept in through our windows and has entered our mansions. It has killed off the flower of our youth: Children no longer play in the streets, and young men no longer gather in the squares.
Jeremiah 9:21, NLT

This is what the LORD Almighty says: Once again men and women of ripe old age will sit in the streets of Jerusalem, each of them with cane in hand because of their age. The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.
The Prophet Zechariah 8:4-6

Arcade Fire, City with no children

Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.
Jesus (author of the Sermon on the Mount) in John 14:1
