I'm tempted to say that for fiction / 'art' there should be no line. I guess the question is - is the purpose of this form of censorship intended to protect peoples morals, or is the intent to protect people from 'copycat' actions?

So - does watching violent films cause more violence? Does reading/watching porn give kids an unrealistic impression of what a relationship 'should' be like? Is it any concern of the government what state my morals are in, as long as I don't break any laws?

(And if watching violent films doesn't cause violence, why is there so much advertising on TV...? Though personally I don't think it does, I do find that a fascinating question.)

[EDIT - missing 'I' - silly boy :)]

Advertising works, that is why companies do it. As to what effect prolonged exposure to violence on t.v., computer games etc. at what age, or level of understanding is something many psychologists are still puzzling over.

Tigger's Mum says:
My point wasn't exactly about censorship but when you are looking for something totally innocuous and something unexpected appears, its quite a shock. I was looking for a dog harness and to see a naked man in a few leather belts with studs was more than a surprise. I do see some very odd titles when browsing categories. I understand completely that in a list of childrens titles when an error occurs it can be upsetting for parents. There are some things that children should not be exposed to as children. Adults, of course, have the right to make their own minds up about what they read or do.

Garscadden says:
My point was that if advertising works, then *presumably* watching violent films is *likely* to have some effect. (Highlighted words, as I'm not saying it does, I'm purposefully proposing a very naive view, because it actually contradicts what I think).

Tigger's Mum says:
There was some research done on children watching violent cartoons, and depending on their ages and also the time of day that they were watching, their perception of what was real changed. There was also a very disturbing case recently of a french boy who killed his friend and all he could say afterwards was "Rewind the video" as if he thought his actions were reversible. I don't know the answer either but the phrase 'Monkey see - monkey do' often comes to mind.

I didn't know that existed, thanks for the pointer. There is an interesting review of it here:

I remember reading it years ago and finding it compelling reading. I'm a bit surprised it isn't still in print actually. I would like to read it again.

Was there also a review that basically concluded that we all have the capacity for wickedness/evil (or any other act/emotion) and that books & media are only the trigger to get us started or something like that ..... ?

I had a tear in me eye when I watched 'Love Story' so obviously movies have the power to affect us - I just better not watch 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' !

Brian, I've learned a valuable lesson today that's going to save me a lot of time and effort.

Rather than bother to read all of "Malcolm's" posts, to avoid repeating something he's said I'll simply not bother to comment in threads he posts to. I have a lot of reading to catch up on anyway and I know there are plenty of others who can answer questions better than me.

Am thoroughly enjoying Caught at the moment.
