Ten years ago, literally, exactly ten years ago right now, I watched the live stream of an invasion of a real country with real people by real soldiers.

The next time someone tells you that video games, books, movies, music--our FICTION--is the problem, remember this. We DO have a culture of violence.

But our fiction is a representation of our real culture, not the other way around.

You've seen real things, haven't you?

Damn...Can't say how much I share my empathy.

I don't think this is a rant because it's true.

Yeah, really unnecessary comment there Doug. That sort of ignorance is why you guys keep losing elections.

This is fact. Violence is very real, and out overly PC culture likes to pretend it isnt. Scapegoats are the order of the day and video games satisfy the masses and their need to quell their guilty conscience by being that very scapegoat.

Though to be fair, Mr. Starr wasn't known for his expertise at either economics or history.

Yep. PC sux to be sure. Much better simply to be yourself, for good or bad. At least there is transparency then.

Personally, I'm capable of enjoying things that lack religious references, nudity, violence, homosexuality, and profanity.

I mean, all those things have their place, but it's not like the absence of them makes something inherently worse.

I served in the military and did my time. I would highly suggest that every male at least enlists for 2 years minimum (which is less than what I served). So what were you saying again?
