Violent Video Games

I disagree; I think it's fine for kids to play "violent" video games. The tendency to learn to fight is built into each of us, and it's good to give it a release that doesn't harm any actual living creatures, I think. It's similar to pornography: there's good evidence that when it's available, people resort to sexual crimes less, not more, as some would claim.

However, the bottom line is that I agree with you, "that's between me and my child, not the state."
