"True for you but not for me."
The post-modern belief in relative morality is a significant part of the problem. As is the devaluing of human life.
The foundation of the problem is evil.
Video games are not the problem. I've been playing "shoot-em-up" games literally since they were invented and REAL violence still turns my stomach. Why? I know and understand the difference. I value human life. I know that it's wrong to murder people, always, everywhere.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.

He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
