Hidden Track

"'People worry about kids playing with guns, and teenagers watching violent videos; we are scared that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobodies worries about kids listening to thousands - literally thousands - of songs about broken hearts and rejection and pain and misery and loss.'

Nick Hornby (High Fidelity)"

  1. Apples and oranges...a completely false dichotomy. Restricting oneself (or one's children) to art that is "happy" would mean missing out on something like 75% of the art that's out there. And exposure to art that explores sadness and loss (almost universally associated with love) does not desensitise people to those emotions the way exposure to violence can desensitise people to violent behavior. It would appear that there's a very good reason why people worry about one and not the other.
