"Once we assuage our conscience by calling something a "necessary evil," it begins to look more and more necessary and less and less evil."
- Sydney J. Harris
I think this saying is a good one for how desensitized people have become to violence and sex in life, especially in movies and TV shows. Just a few decades ago shows that are now PG-13 or even PG would have been rated R. There are even some G movies that I think should be rated higher.
It also is a good quote for how we do things we shouldn't and come up with excuses why we had to do it. Eventually we allow ourselves to do worse things and are able to convince ourselves that it is ok. It is very sad.
What are your thoughts on this?
