  1. Sooner or later kids will see what we are saving them from. The censorship will not work when they grow up and are no longer living in a protected environment we create for them. Should we censor all sort of exposure to guns for our kids or should we spend time in instilling virtues like non-violence, patience and tolerance? Should we repeat every time someone smokes on screen that smoking is injurious to health or should we teach our kids the harmful effects of tobacco and ensure they are not negatively influenced by so called “role models”?
    What is a better solution in the long term? Protecting kids by censoring things like tobacco, alcohol, guns, violence and then hoping they will not be exposed to them even when they grow up and are no longer living in an environment controlled by us or educating them and giving them good values, knowledge and wisdom to ensure they are able to choose wisely between good and bad?
