George - I agree with what you said. I said earlier that I don't approve of censorship. But I do find the preponderance of readily-accessible porn & violence sites a bit worrying.
how is it that a feature film full of brutal violence is said not to affect viewers behaviour, but a 15 second advert is intended to do just that - influence our behaviour?even if it`s only to buy a certain soap powder, the advertisers invest a lot of money with the specific idea that they can make some people do what they want.why doesn`t this apply to violence on the same media?
i share a deep concern about this subject, and it`s effects on individuals and sciety as a whole.in fact, i have stopped watching t.v altogether due to the vacuuous and usually irrelevant nature of the programming. after no t.v for 2 years or more, i can no longer sit and watch because i bacome so angry and disappointed in the world.
