We have abandoned our own personal responsibility for what we find acceptable,
and our ownership of what those in our care can determine for themselves.
Instead we, who normally demand the government avoid doing anything for us,
demand the government protect us from stuff we can easily avoid. If we'd just
grow up a bit, we can get to a point where we're not all in a twist about stuff
we don't like. We'd just turn it off, and so would our kids. And that would be
the end of it.
I'm almost more worried about the content of many (most?) TV shows streaming
into our homes than I am about internet.The moral deterioration of
cable TV and now threats that network TV will follow suit, are totally
terrifying.This morning I caught a little of the Today Show on
Channel 5 that seemed to be pushing for relaxation of rules on broadcast TV.
(Honestly, I was only half listening.) But if even the broadcast TV become the
kind of sewer that now flows into our homes via cable, we're in big trouble.I really wonder what would happen if one of the major networks would
find the courage to stand up and say, "Enough. We are going to keep our
content safe and family friendly."Do you think there's a chance
that Americans might flock to watch their shows? Or are we so far gone that it
would fail?WE are the answer to that question, folks. Not only LDS,
but other denominations as well. What would happen if we all -- regardless of
differences -- joined together in a huge outcry?
My2cents: seriously? Your comment emphasizes just how naive people are. Taking
your child offline--impossible, no way no e. This is an online world. But what
parents can do is realize they might be naive, and become educated. What a great
conference, and three chers for the people who take the time and willingness to
attend and learn.
Why don't the parents just take their children off line? Or is that too simple
and parental?Next will be laws to prosecute parents for allowing
children to talk to predators on line. Twisted logic and twisted technology.
