> So we need to shift the blame on movies, computer games, music, you name it.
This has been going for on for at least the past 100 years. Americans historically love to play the blame game. Some made up bullshit excuse instead of finding & treating the root problem. One small set (or sect/group/cult) of society tries to blame an inanimate object for all of society's woes and spreads their propaganda to anyone who will listen.
Every "next technology" is always scapegoated.
1920 Prohibition (Alcohol), Phonographs
1930 Jazz, Movies
1960 Psychedelic Drugs, Sex
1970 Rock n Roll, Movies (again)
1980 MTV, DnD, Heavy Metal
1990 Computer Games
As they say in Japan/China:
"The nail that sticks up gets pounded down"
Shoot the messenger instead of listening to the message! Sarcasm: Yeah let's ignore the problem hoping it will go away!
What a sad, dysfunctional, and completely fucked up society we live in.
