We got a new law in my homecountry. According to this law, Killergames are now illigal to own
for minors. There's no exact definition of Killergames, but who cares. And since I'm no minor,
I can't be really bothered that it's now a little harder for me to get my Call of Duty's and
Halo's. I import anyways.

But what does bother me, is the fact that violent games are now essentially on the same level
as porn, guns, alcohol and smokes. And the "new media", like Websites and Blogs, can now
be shut down too, if they show "material that is harmfull to the youth". Good times.

And all for the sake of those damn politics, who just want to cop out of dealing with the real
issues we have with the youth in this country. Instead they say: "Once we locked away all
those evil video games everything will be fine."

So what next? Do I need to cover the new Call of Duty in a brown bag when I leave the store?
