Op Ed

BitMob - Harmful Matter: Gaming's Freedom of Speech.
That, to me, is a clear violation of several personal freedoms, expression being one. Are there games minors should not be exposed to? Absolutely, and it's the parents' job to make the call, not the government's. In our nation's history, legislation censoring what books we can read, what film and TV shows we can watch, what music we listen to, or what games we can play has never been ruled constitutional. That could change less than a month from now.

If most parents were active, responsible, caring, intelligent, and wise than I'd agree, however, we know this isn't the case for the vast majority of them. Most parents and kids I see out there are proof positive that reproduction should be a state sanctioned event not available to most. If the parents are incapable, and most are, than Jr. grows up to be a problem for society and/or the world. It's the reason we're all fucked up one way or another. Everything else is, and has been, subject to control and censorship for a long time now so why should games be any different?
