Violence on screen
How often have you heard elderly newspeople talk about how they would never show so much carnage on the TV newsshow? Come to think of it, rather than start with the dead horse, that is cinema; we need to start flogging prime-time television for bringing in violence uncensored into our lives. Film now, cannot be considered a �family medium�. If I am not wrong, families hardly go to the cinemas. Down here, they have VCD and KTV. (It is another topic for discussion that this demographic certainty prompts a revision of our certification and censorship norms)
When hordes of rightwingers fight tooth and nail against perceived �alien vulgarity�, they are part of, and therefore do not condemn the impact violent imagery has on impressionable people. With increasing intolerance in our world, this is what needs to be addressed.
