    Does any of it register or do you just go with flow as the old saying goes.

    In conversation do you support women's rights yet enjoy watching a movie where a woman is coerced into sex or tratedly roughly until submission. Is that stuff entertainment to you? Is endless killing with guns entertainment wjile mass shootings grow?
    Do you/we sing the national anthem and revel in our militarism and slaughter across the globe? Do you/we beam with pride, chest trust outwardly to meet the hand over your/our heart(s) when you/we think of all our endless wars as you/we recite the Pledge of Allegiance?
    You tend to be even more of a one note pony than Half-Life. Is everything okay at home?

    And you continually behave like he does via obfuscation and dodging, as demonstrated yet again, here. Why can't america invest in its own society and peoples like advanced 21st century nations?

    We would rather fund endless wars of profit, resource control, aggression and empire across the globe. You will note your corporate state media never mentions this insanity. Well of course not, look at the advertisers; it's the for profit war industry.

    Yeah, the mindless violence films give me the willies and I fear they socialise youngsters to emulation, to some degree.

    OTOH, I worry about the argument than any portrayal of a wrong action should be suppressed. The portrayal of bad behaviour can be the best argument against it, and the film doesn't have to be overtly moralistic to achieve that.

    It largely depends on the culture in which it is viewed.

    But yeah. I try to feed my head more spinach than potato cakes.
    What about the mindless violence of a warlike nation?
