As a fan of movies, heavy metal music and a video gamer since the Atari 2600 days, it seems obvious that what we view/play will effect our views/perceptions. In today’s culture where actions are free from consequense, it’s also unsurprising that people feel free to act on impuls in a morality free way.
So what changed and why didn’t kids from the 40s-80s go psycho every week after all the ultraviolent gangster movies, loony tunes cartoons etc?
Well, first and foremost, PARENTS taught the concept of right and wrong...and they weren’t arrested or recipients of CPS ‘love’ for doing so. Kids went to church. Kids could act out their fantasies playing cops and robbers/cowboys and indians/army et all, without CPS and a team of teachers, psychologists-psychiatrists and the rest ‘reeducating’ them for simply playing childhood games.
Why are kids in front of the TV watching R movies and playing M rated games all day? Could it be that every time they go outside they have to navigate a PC world they have no clue of understanding (as it changes by the second), the EPA and ‘safety’ groups outlawed anything resembling ‘fun’ on public lands...
EVERY BIT of this issue is 100% the responsibility of liberalism. ALL OF IT. It all goes back to the same source.
I feel sorry for kids now - most of them never get to have a “kid life”. Gone are the days when you were just shooed out of the house on Saturday mornings to run around and play, make friends, fight, fall and scrape your knees, whatever.
Liberals closed the asylums and opened the prison doors. Their lawyers made everyone sue-happy and at the same time staunchly defended the thugs & creeps. Liberal parenting (I blame Dr. Spock) has led to a generation of spoiled brats. The liberal state has tried to replace fathers and religion.
