I do think that Hollywood could tone the violence down in movies. I think ultimately the responsibility lies with the parents. It is their responsibility to decide what is acceptable for their kids to watch. I don’t think passing a new law is the answer. We need to change the attitudes of parents, adults, and children in our society so they don’t think that violence is acceptable. Violence is an unacceptable means to achieve a desire, a want, or a need. We need to change hearts and minds on this issue. Laws can help achieve this, to guide a person in one direction or another, but in the end it is up to the individual to choose good or evil, violence or peaceful means to achieve their goals. While I am not for laws to limit violence in Hollywood I ask how can we educate our youth when the parents fail? How do we reduce the violence in our society?
