    Default Is there a line to be crossed in the territory of acceptable?

    Do you believe one can take things too far with what they say or create? Do you believe some things simply shouldn't be allowed to be said or created in this world?

    The video on YouTube of a brick flying through a windshield and killing a woman. That video still haunts me 3 years after I watched it. It should be removed from every corner of the Internet. I never understood people's obsession with "death tapes". I've seen a few, and I just don't get why they stay up. Horrible.

    Yeah, this subject has been on my mind because of the uproar about the game 'Hatred.' Check this out if you haven't seen it:

    I do believe that there are lines that just should never be crossed, if we are to keep our humanity about us and our world, but I do believe that before our time is over, all lines will be crossed and we will lose all humanity.

    I think any type of censorship is bad, we should be able to talk about anything, but I also believe in being respectful. If you know that a video or a subject annoys you too much, simply stay away.
    What?

    Some humans are very primitive, they really don't understand that everything we do/say always have some kind of consequence, it's pure logic!

    You ask..... can we take things too far?! - Sure we can, unless we have a death wish!

    A certain voyeurism comes with being human and looking for the forbidden in order to reflect upon ourselves. Other than that, our "natural" voyeurism makes us vulnerable to instrumentalization from outside. Therefore, I think that it is somehow important to boykott the yellow press and the immense craving for recognition on the social media, for it does not only violate the portrayed, but also the watcher, as his/her empathy is gradually blunted.

    That game looks fucking badass! I will definitely be checking out "Hatred" when it comes out. Thank you for introducing me to it.

    My basic philosophy is this: Never go out of your way to piss anyone off or to avoid pissing anyone off. Unless they're radical Muslims, in which case maybe avoid pissing them off too much unless you have damn good bodyguards. Like Manson said, that's purely out of pragmatism and common sense.

    The only time I've ever been truly disgusting by someone's use of their freedom of expression was when I first heard about the Westboro Baptist Church. Protesting a funeral is to good taste what creationism is to science. Besides, a funeral is a form of expression. It's about expressing love and respect for someone who's passed on. Saying that you should be allowed to protest a funeral is like saying that you should be allowed to protest a film by holding your signs in front of the cameras while it's being shot.

    I suppose so. If people could go too far with physical violence, people could also go too far with their words as well. The power of words should never be underestimated or taken for granted. I'm unfortunately guilty of that myself though, but I could always use a reminder whenever it comes to matters and questions such as this one.

    Oh yes, and then there's also the fact that what you say wrong and what you do wrong could also come back to haunt you and hurt yourself, if not hurt others, or even both. Like most things, it's still easier said than done sometimes though, but it certainly just goes to show that you can never be too careful at all times yet again, and why I should take this topic a lot more seriously.
