Today there is an excessive amount of violence, sexuality, and inappropriate ideas in our society. We see these things in movies, TV shows, commercials, at school, home, billboards, music, etc. I believe that these things should be put to a minimum because I do not want my generation, or even my kids’ generation to be exposed to these ideas.
An example of too much violence is the movie ‘Rambo.’ This movie is about a war in the Vietnam area. This movie features Sylvester Stallone who is extremely violent. There are many casualties in this film and it is very gory. The movie shows people being blown into two pieces, kids being thrown into fires, people dieing from genocide, soldiers being blown up by land mines, and innocent families being pulled apart. I think that it is important for the American people to be exposed to what is happening in the world around us, but I also believe that we don’t need every last detail of the gory images happening around the world. I think that an important message can get across without showing every last drop of blood that was put into the making.
In the past 100 years, our world has erupted suddenly. We have experienced everything from nudity on national television, to racial slurs being used in the everyday vocabulary. I know that I don’t want my children to be experiencing some of these everyday things, so I believe that we should tone down this violence being spread across America.
