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.

The Gun is good!

The Penis is evil!

The Penis shoots Seeds, and makes new Life to poison the Earth with a plague of men, as once it was. But the Gun shoots Death and purifies the Earth of the filth of Brutals...
Go forth, and kill!

I also endorse Cutters ideas about breeding permits.

There should be a test.

If you score a certain number of can have a goldfish.

A few more, rodents.

A few more than that, you can own a cat.

If you score 100%, a dog.

If you get all of that, and all the extra credit questions right...a kid.

For additional children, you have to take another test...and so do your existing kids.

Of course, we'd get out-bred by every other nation on earth, but IQs would go up by a lot in the meantime.

Yer agreed, the realism and interactivity will reach tipping point soon so they may as well start laying the foundations for future controls. As for freedom of speech, it's a fairytale, always was, always will be.

I also endorse Cutters ideas about breeding permits. - speculative psychosis in trilogy form

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?
