It’s not just violent games, it’s the culture which encourages the idolatry of the grotesque and gruesome. Our society does not encourage the sane, the reasonable, the rational. Instead rudeness, loudness and hostility surround us and are deemed as robust normal qualities/virtues when in fact the idolatry of such behaviors encourage mental confusion and illness.

It strikes me as a little bit weird that those who so loudly defend the 2nd Amendment are so cavalier about the 1st Amendment.

Tampering with the 1st is an error. The way to handle violent video games and violent movies is to turn our backs to them and ignore them.

That means setting rules for what your children will watch.

Just remember:

If we do not wish to lose our freedom, we must learn to tolerate our
neighbor’s right to freedom even though he might express that freedom
in a manner we consider to be eccentric.

I recall reading about the tribe that was introduced to television and after being exposed to it for a few weeks they
Removed them because they were causing unrest and unhappiness !
They are way wiser than us !
Being exposed to constant violent videos , tv , music have a subliminal impact that goes undetected .
We canceled our cable and have not missed it .
