Man, sometimes you make good points and sometimes you just talk in circles. I showed objective (assuming acceptance of standard villian/hero archetype of entertainment) evidence to refute your two main claims and now you're talking about my perceptions (as if you know them) and quoting Charles Manson. Oh well, you can't have structured arguments with everyone.

Where you perceive a villain or a savior; I perceive another human being.

“Look down at me and you see a fool;
look up at me and you see a god;
look straight at me and you see yourself” - Charles Manson

“These children that come at you with knives, they are your children. You taught them. I didn't teach them. I just tried to help them stand up.” - Charles Manson

“I'm not your executioner. I'm not your devil and I'm not your God. I'm Charles Manson.”

Or you could agree with me that children's entertainment generally depicts a dichotomy of people. I have watched PPG episodes on youtube and was initially torn. I like the references, even the idea that Satan is a cross-dresser. Though I'm surprised that got aired. I just don't like the Good-Guy vs Bad-Guy schtick that characterizes pretty much all popular entertainment. E.g. Autobots vs Decepticons, Humans vs Machines, etc... None of it has anything to do with reality generally. That "Good people" do bad things is pretty well proven by Milgrim and Zimbardo's research. But people almost always overlook it as unimportant. Nevertheless, as adults we are killing each other, robbing each other and disregarding each other. I thinks it humorous that we poor all this idealism into children's entertainment in hopes of raising good little children, but then we aren't good so our idealism is problematic. Instead we project our evil onto a perceived bad person or bad type of person.

Speaking of consumption; who is being fed or what part of them is being fed? Maybe the whole culture is awash in gratuitous sentimentality with the consequence of not thinking clear enough.
