Apocalípticos …

Xa o dicía Umberto Eco. Hainos apocalípticos e hainos integrados. Como non pode ser doutro xeito nesto das novas tecnoloxías ocorre o mesmo: redes P2P… piratería! – videoxogos… pornografía, destrución!

Velaquí algúns retazos dos apocalípticos…

Sobre as novelas

“The free access which many young people have to romances, novels, and plays has poisoned the mind and corrupted the morals of many a promising youth; and prevented others from improving their minds in useful knowledge. Parents take care to feed their children with wholesome diet; and yet how unconcerned about the provision for the mind, whether they are furnished with salutary food, or with trash, chaff, or poison?”

– Reverend Enos Hitchcock, Memoirs of the Bloomsgrove Family, 1790

Sobre as películas

“This new form of entertainment has gone far to blast maidenhood … Depraved adults with candies and pennies beguile children with the inevitable result. The Society has prosecuted many for leading girls astray through these picture shows, but GOD alone knows how many are leading dissolute lives begun at the ‘moving pictures.'”

– The Annual Report of the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, 1909

Sobre os videoxogos

“The disturbing material in Grand Theft Auto and other games like it is stealing the innocence of our children and it’s making the difficult job of being a parent even harder … I believe that the ability of our children to access pornographic and outrageously violent material on video games rated for adults is spiraling out of control.”

– US senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, 2005
