A Specter is Haunting America 
A radical shift in the zeitgeist: The petition (see below) to kill off the Kardashian franchise on E! is a collective response, a significant historical shift away from idiots who have epitomized the banal culture of selfishness, greed, commodity fetishism, and conspicuous consumption. Sadly, a generation of young people have embraced these vapid, gluttonous people as role models. Parents have felt powerless to fight the nonsense pumped into kids' brains since Paris Hilton dominated the news. But there's a blast  fresh air wafting through America, clearing out all that is rotted and rancid---a specter is haunting America, it's a call for economic equality, social responsibility, accountability, meaningful culture, full participation, and authenticity.
