By the way, just in case you thing this is a personal issue with me, let me tell you that I hate video games and generally think they are a stupid waste of time. But I think everyone has the right to waste their time in the way that they see fit. Furthermore, I believe that all the emphasis on blaming videogames, blaming Hollywood, blaming music, etc. is worse than stupid and wrong, its harmful. Its harmful because it distracts society from dealing with the real problems facing kids and young adults. It is a way for parents to have someone else to point at, rather than taking a look at themselves and their lifestyles. Parents and politicians should switch the question from "What affect is this entertainment having on our children?" to "Why are our children so attracted to violent entertainment?" They are concentrating on the symptoms, not the causes.
Just as a reminder, the Reichwing morons love whining about what Hollywood is doing to the children. Hide the kids! Its Madonna!!
