No they don t slip out of bed to watch tv(boy you are in a different century!) They take their electronics, hide under the covers and stream. Therefore take away electonics before bed. You are over monitoring what is part of life, whether the govt or parents can't monitor kids 24/7. They lie, sneak and manipulate at every chance Parents are dealing with far more than naked tv. Starting at 10 y.o. suicides are the second leading cause of death. Gang violence mass murders in school, sex, alcohol, drugs. Raising two kids I don't give a damn about nudity on tv, non issue.



Streaming is one reason why pixelization would work better than any safeguards placed on TVs. It wouldn't matter if they streamed HBO shows etc. They still wouldn't be able to see uncensored nudity.

And even if you don't care about young kids being exposed to nudity other people are concerned about it. If this society truly wanted to prevent it in a way consistent with Supreme Court rulings pixelization of nudity in films and TV shows would be one easy way to do that.

I agree that there are other things to worry about too but exposing kids to nudity and sexually explicit material when they are a little too young is still not something which should be ignored by parents.

Perhaps some. I like the idea of a strong Federal government imposing moral standards on a society. I just don't want those moral standards to be ones which don't make sense like we see in our "war on drugs."

But at the same time I challenge your idea that I'm more interested in authoritarianism than people on the left assuming you truly believe that. Don't people on the left want our Federal government to tell people what to do? It's just a question of what specifically they want that to be.

I'm not really one of those hard core authoritarians. Not only that but I don't agree that authoritarianism is what separates the right and left wings in this country. What does that is a different sense of morality. Even people on the right do not always believe in strict obedience to government authority. They tend to be suspicious of government authority especially when it comes to things like gun control.

The kind of government I want to see is one which truly cares about those it seeks to govern. A government that wants the best for them. I expect a government like that to exert power as all governments do but at least it will be doing so in the public's best interest when it does, provided of course that it is a government operated by competent and qualified people.

So you just want the federal government to impose your moral standards on everyone.

Why do you want to live in a totalitarian state?

Guns every where is far nastier than seeing a few naked breasts and genitals on a movie or tv show.

Better my moral standards than the ones it is currently imposing. Those include the "war on drugs," a holier than thou crusade against people who aren't doing anything worse than drinking booze.

I loathe even the idea of a totalitarian state. That's one reason why I oppose the "war on drugs." That particular effort moves our government as close to being a totalitarian government as it gets. It even involves jackbooted "thugs" kicking down peoples' doors and sometimes shooting them over their choice of drug used recreationally.

Yeah, of the fact that when liberals and conservatives agree about something they're probably going to be wrong. Liberals and conservatives in our government agreed about the "war on drugs" and that turned out to be a fiasco depriving people of their liberty and sometimes even their lives over their choice of what drug to use for fun.

Perhaps but that doesn't change the fact that this society could prevent young children from being exposed to nudity and explicit sexual scenes in films and TV programs if it really wanted to do so. That obviously isn't as high a priority as it once was.

First has to be defined what is explicit as mine and yours are a very wide berth. Children are exposed to nudity long before evening tv. Young kids if you haven't noticed see naked as normal it is certain adults ones usually that mistakenly tie nudity with sex as tjey do with nteast feeding. Kids wouldn't think it a big deal until adults with their personal hang ups step in, just like race kids are colour blind, adults screw up lots of stuff up with their prejudices.
