American culture is about being young forever. Even when we grow older, we want to hide our wrinkles and color our grey hairs. That’s exactly what happened last month with MTV. This music television channel, a major cultural icon around the world, is trying to stay young by not mentioning its real age.

Associated Press says, “When your average viewer is 20 years old . . . perhaps it’s wise not to mention you’re 25. MTV wants to be the perpetual adolescent.”CNN mapped its 25 years and Washington Post repoted this landmark in the life of MTV.

Chuck Colson had kept close watch on MTV’s cultural impact on western culture and the world. Check out the most recent Breakpoint commentary on MTV culture.
