8. That was a huge victory in Regular People vs Cranky Old People

The older generation did the same thing to Comics in the 50's, in fact they won that once and comics were censored for 50 years, and Rock/Metal Music in the 80's when Dee Snider put the smack down on Tipper Gore. They are afraid of what they don't understand and what is different than what they did as kids.

P.S. I apologize, I know not all older folks are like this but it is easier to generalize in this situation because I've never heard a 20-30 year old with any sense in their head say that video game, comic books or Rock and Roll music causing kids to go on killing rampages.
