No sarcasm or hypocrisy please

I request the authors and editors of all electronic and print medium companies including the blogs to publicly endorse the following proposal.

Everyday we see news people deprecating each other in personal, professional, political and religious dimensions.

There is a scientific evidence that this is doing an irreparable harm to the welfare of our children and our future generations.

"To live in society, people have to have an inner mechanism that regulates their behaviour. Rejection defeats the purpose of this, and people become impulsive and self-destructive. You have to use self-control to analyse a problem in an IQ test, for example - and instead, you behave impulsively."

"There's no such thing as Intrinsic Motivation."

We can prevent this from happening by publicly putting off broadcasting such news and analysis.

I propose a 50 year moratorium on individuals and institutions publicly denouncing or demoralizing somebody in electronic and print medium.
