EA VP: Germany Should Drop USK "Censorship" quotes EA executive VP and GM of international publishing Gerhard Florin, who does not conceal his frustration in a conversation with German website SPIEGEL ONLINE over the German rating system that is exceptionally strict about video game violence. Florin calls the system "censorship" and demands Germany drop its USK system in favor of the Pan-European Game Information (PEGI) system used elsewhere. They also offer a counter-point from USK head Marek Brunner, who points out other regulations influence this situation, including German criminal law, and that the there are "no plans" to adopt the PEGI system.

Bullshit, when has history ever taught our species anything.

What moral compass? Who decides whose morals are RIGHT? If history has taught us anything it is that victors are the ones who write it.

If you believe that humanity is in control of its destiny, you are very naive. Our "human" nature is the only thing that has some kind of a semblence of control, and its not very pretty.
