Blaming society is a cop out, and a rather pathetic one at that.

When I was a kid in the 80s, I was never allowed to watch Miami Vice. My parents were liberals, but they understood what responsible parenting was all about.

Jeremy,

How involved are you with youth?

As a former youth pastor, society is one of the major issues. Not the major one, but one of them. It is what forms the structure which youth rebel against or accept, it helps define every aspect of life.

Your parents didn't let you watch miami vice... that is where the parents have responsibility. good for them. did they also check every radio station you listened to?

When you sexualize a culture, you will get sexualized people at a younger and younger age.

After all... what is culture and society, but a collective snapshot of individuals. The individuals create the society, which then creates it own momentum... internal inertia, which is then empowered by other individuals driving boundaries further.

and youth are still impressionable enough to get caught up in the inertia, yet they are also old enough to see through it... with parental help... which is why it is EVERYONE's fault... including the youth and society and parents.

I have three children. I cannot concieve a situation where I would blame society for the behavior of my children.

Good.

Don't forget. I am speaking at the corporate level, not at the individual level.

I am glad you think the way you do.

In doing so, you protect your children from things on TV, radio, etc. etc. right? Why? Because they are things that can lead a child astray.

There is blame in that as well. No one gets a free pass.

i am like you HTG... my daughter is 9 and keeps asking me for her own computer with internet in her room.. i keep telling her no. i like it where i can see what she is doing on the internet, so my computer is in my family room where we spend most of our time.

i am not one to shield my children from most stuff. if she has a question i try to answer it or find someone that can. but in the sense of sexual content, i do draw the line.

This kind of OT, but things like that remind me a lot of the early Nazi rhetoric.

Reductio ad Nazium arguments really don't work.

I did not call anyone a Nazi. But blaming the decadence of society is a strategy that's been used since the beginning of time.

The most recent uses have been in the former Yugoslavia to justify ethnic cleansing and in Nazi Germany to justify the extermination of the Jews.

I did not blame the decadence of society, but argued that society as a whole is driven by the individuals in it and thus, is part and parcel to the entire debate.
