You can't show female nudity or say "fuck," but if you show people getting tortured, you can have the highest rated show on television. So, it gets me twisted up when people decide for me what is acceptable for children. That's bullshit.
It's my turn for a "Give me for a fucking break."

You've never been confused as to why sex is evil, but violence is okay in our entertainment society?

I watched one of the CSIs after Jericho earlier this year. The gore it displayed would have been appropriate for an R rated movie when I was growing up, not broadcast even at 1AM.

The problem is not standards but declining standards.

If people actually stopped giving crap shows good ratings it would force the networks to air good stuff, but instead of letting the market decide they (>>>>STUPIDLY<<<<) complain to some beaurocratic censorship board.

Same goes for this album, if the people in Poland didn't want it then they could show that through the sales charts, but intstead they get the government involved and ruin it for the few people who want it.

Bed times are only enforced in the house. I think it feels more Orwellian because it is basically a slap in the face....In most instances, alcohol, tobacco, sexual devices, and other age-restricted things are set aside at the stores, to more easily monitor who buys them. CDs are just "laid out there" for everyone to see, everyone to touch, any kid can pick it up, listen to samples, etc......But then once you get up there...

"Sorry Timmy, the government doesnt think you want to hear this."
"But why?"
"Well, they talk about things other than God, Jesus, consumption, and conformity. BOO!"

I do think the issue of why bands like this are 'considered' dangerous is not because THEY are Satanists (actually, I think they are Pagans, which is completely different).....In most cases, the bands are smart enough to think for themselves and implant their own genuine beliefs into their music. But havent we all heard the stories of the angst-filled teenagers, the loners, that listen to black metal or death metal, get involved in the scene, but are too fucking blind, ignorant, and misled to distinguish between reality and fantasy, right and wrong, normal and extreme. The actual belief system may be harmless, but some dumb soul takes it overboard and ruins it for everyone. At any rate, those cases are rare, and a widespread ban on these bands would do more harm to the fans than would benefit Poland.
