    For children? To the full extent. My child would have to be at least 14 before they would be allowed to watch PG movies. There are just things children should not be exposed to. They will have to face adult problems soon enough. Let them be young and innocent for as long as possible.

      Glad you're an active parent, JThomp! I think over exposure to what's not right on film these days causes many of society's problems. Right on the button there!

    Well, with a rating system censorship really shouldn't be necessary. However, we have de facto censorship in a sense, since most theaters won't show NC-17 or unrated movies. So directors will often have to tone down their films if they hope to actually make any money in theaters.

      Indeed, with a rating system, used properly, there really shouldn't be an issue with censorship! Glad that theaters are discriminating!

    All the Way.  And this is because nowadays  people seem to have no sense of discrimination.  Many years ago we were told that TV will not alter peoples' sense of, for instance, right and wrong!  Then when criticised they said they are only holding a mirror up to life!  But it was usually the lowest in life which attracted the most attention - presented as 'life as it is'!   Well it wasn't then  -  but it is now!
    The young tend to follow behaviour patterns presented to them as glamorous, as interesting.  Behaving well is not presented to them as either! 
    Actually, I feel that Libraries too should become more responsible for the material they are making available to people who perhaps lack discrimination.  Libraries should shoulder their responsibilties and discriminate!   They are qualfied to do so.  They should do a better job!

      Agree with you ....moral uprightness is not portrayed as "cool" but played down instead! And rating systems should be implemented in all areas, like libraries and theaters!

    I don't by anyone except the people paying to see the movies. I believe in censoring bad language, sex and violence by not going to see those kind of movies. I believe in parents not letting children see them.
