When is violence okay for kids? In the mind of the Motion Picture Association of America, violence without blood is a lesser form of violence that kids won't find disturbing. Films like G.I. Joe: Retaliation illustrate how bizarre that distinction is.
Violence and good stories have gone hand in hand for years. If we try to curb the level of violence in contemporary stories, we may lose something valuable. If we truly want to solve the issue of horrific acts of violence in society, we must get to the root of the problem.
