I deeply respect your personal opinion. OTOH, if it becomes to be fundamentalistic in any sense, I'm getting sensitive. Most things which are adopted by young people arround the World comes from the USA. But those things are not attracive because its highly ethical values (with Guantanamo, Abu Graib etc. George W. has destroyed that part of your reputation and - sorry, a Big Mac has no ethical value at all), the game is about US Global Players, trying to make money. Back to the point - if foul language wouldn't bother anyone - there would be no discussion/dispute about it. No media focus. No money. Panem et circenses. You've to blame your own environment/system. A difference: "the old europeans" aren't less two-faced when it comes to things like that. What AGU already mentioned. Beeping f-words in MTV (and its equivalents) is counterproductive. You might know the Pavlovian conditioning.
50Cent earns 39 Million dollars a year. He has to serve his customers. While Garth Brooks, Shania Twain (I guess you like their way to express their emotions) etc. are responsible to squeze out the dollars from the other part of the community.
In Germany, TV channels have been forced (from people like you) to preset a note about a following broadcast. Perfect, now children knows that this will be interesting as its approved only for an age level above their own. :roll:. The same principle as if to label records with "explicit lyrics". The perfect marketing thing. HowTo attract people on things they wouldn't be attracted if not advised that way. Whoopeee (und sie tanzten um ein goldenes Kalb ...) :lol:
And btw. children are less numb as adults might think. They know how to differentiate, as long they are not influenced by adults (in whatever direction). Translate "Kindersoldaten" and you might know what I mean.
btw: I like the Brits (and their sense of humor) :wink: [History Of The F' Word]
AFAIK the USA have the biggest Porn Industry on this planet. Ding dingeding deng ding deng ding deng dingeding ... Moneeey ... (Pink Floyd - Dark side of the Moon).
