There’s a menace out there afflicting our youth. Kids miss school and when they do bother to show their eyes are bloodshot and they appear as they are in a trance. What’s worse, some people claim this menace leads to youth violence. Oh sure I remember dabbling in the same sort of thing when I was younger, but the new stuff is far more powerful and far more addictive. Sure some people might be able to manage their habit, but many fall into addiction and become hopeless burnouts and losers living at home into their 30s spending all their time and money feeding their addiction. All the while, our complacent culture promotes this evil, glorifying it to those most vulnerable – our teenagers and even our pre-teens.
I am of course referring to video games. When will Harper curb this horrible scourge on our society?
