Perhaps they should of concerned themselves more with children spending hours of the day in dimly lit arcades and bars. There was always someone there to sell drugs.

>slippery slope
I never understood why that's considered a fallacy. Modern American "society" is a result of an endless series of slippery slopes, and it's guaranteed to get worse because there's always someone whose purpose is to push the boundaries and see what they can get away with, and they always eventually get away with it when they're persistent. There is no end to it.

>> No.7851768 [DELETED] 

You're being far too kind

>There is no end to it.
Of course there is. Give it a few more years and China will take over America without firing a single shot. Simply march down the streets shouting "boys can't be girls" and watch the US soldiers shriek in horror and flee to the closest ball pit.

>I never understood why that's considered a fallacy
its not, the fallacy is slippery slope being a fallacy

>> No.7851785

it is as you say. taking advantage of the slippery slope is actually someone's tactics. so it stands to reason that a supporting tactic is to convince people the slippery slope isn't real.

>> No.7851834 [DELETED] 

Of course it's not a fallacy.
There's two other versions of "slippery slope"-
>foot in the door
>give an inch, take a mile
Our ancestors dealt with these problems and called it out. Once the path is started down, it manifests itself. It's the nature of dopamine. Once people WIN, they crave more wins. Pushing further and further. This is why the ESRB was created willingly. Better the industry take control than the government.

Christians are mongoloids, and Americans are even bigger mongoloids for allowing this kind of broken system to come to fruition in the first place, then again its just as bad here in Europe so I guess we're the biggest mongoloids for letting that shit pass here too.

Look at games before the rating system and after, and really pay attention to just how much the rating system stifles artistic exploration.
Ever wondered why we got so much tropey garbage in video games? Its because devs will walk a fine line of what is and what isnt acceptable, and because in a sense, devs have to appease a bunch of people with a strange set of demands for games to be able to pass a certain age rating based on outdated American values and stuff your average American kid or teen has already been seeing every single day, its basically making these comittees feel good about saving the poor minds of the American youth when probably have been watching porn since they were 12.

The only thing any dev should not be allowed to put in their games is absolutely nothing at all, they should get to make it and we should be able to buy it, its not up to the government or any comittee to decide what we consume or not consume.

Caused unrionically by the American occupation, the US gave Japan to MacArthur, a staunch conservative military general that introduced several social reforms similar to the US post-ww2 conservative 50s white picket fence era, especially when the red scare turned into the beginnings of the cold war.

Roosevelt's reforms based on the gained riches from the 20s were pretty much blocked off from Japan,and you could argue Japan became a practice ground for the US to try out a conservative approach.

Japanese culture and traditions have always been more loose compared to western values when it comes to sex, blood, gore, and the depiction of it.
Even today Japanese culture is somewhat troubled because their post-ww2 Japan-US cultural values clash with their religious and historical values a lot, leaving a lot of Japanese people Atheist yet religious at the same time.
