What I meant by censoring is when they show a movie on a cable channel the movie is normally censored and violence and sex and bad words are edited out. Think FX when I mean by cable. Is that ok? Most do it because they fear backlash from the federal government because moralists who are radicals-and any extremist is a dangerous thing-would take up to arms on tv companies showing "bad" things that would harm the public.
And the thing about restricting. It is just as bad as censoring because when you restrict you have more people just doing it. Look at the illegal drugs, americans consume those drugs like crazy because they are illegal to a degree. Take the danger out of it and watch drug use go down. Same with videogames make a note of it that it is just entertainment and watch controversy go down. But then again, most americans cannot live without conflict. So that in it is a problem in itself and a very big problem.
