Assassination Simulation Game

Anyone hear about this? Isn't this the most tasteless and crude attempt to get young people into history? What do you think? Are kids today so jaded and de-sensitized that this would be fun?

I can't stand this. Am I over-reacting? Such a shame....

I know. What next? "Terror: 9/11? Be the pilot that crashes into the first tower! Race against your friends online to be the first to destroy both!"

I am appalled at the lack of compassion and integrity of people sometimes.

I do not think you are over reacting. I'm bothered by the political implications of this. Any game that makes any political leader the target of an assassination makes that act less intolerable. As a rule I am not in favor of censorship, but in this case I might be willing to consider an exception. This game steps over the line.

It just makes me wonder how desensitized we've become .... that an assassination could be considered good "entertainment" material. Rolling Eyes

I read about it in Newsweek and I couldn't think of anything more appalling.

....until I came to the article a few pages later about white power rock and the Schoolyard Project.....

If you have the current issue of Newsweek its on page 32, if not you can read the article here... http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6542890/site/newsweek/

It seems that some man is recording "white power rock" and giving away free CDs at junior high schools.

Sick and sicker.

Ok, so I read the article....what the hell is wrong with people? It is times like this that I am almost embarrassed to be white. Embarrassed I just can't believe people really think like this.

I know that everyone has their prejudices...we are human and can't possibly have been exposed to everything this world has to offer...but there is a difference between ignorance and hate. Most people are prejudice because they don't understand something and usually don't even realize they are being prejudice. But these people are really truly hateful.
Sheesh....what are we coming to??? Question Question

I hear you, Kristie.

Match skills with Lee Harvey Oswald then go listen to your hate music! Happy holidays, kids!

The thing that really annoys me is that everyone complains about "kids today" without thinking about how they got this way. The adults that create and finance this stuff are poison.

I hate to be a fly in the ointment...but these kids parents have a responsibility in knowing what their kids are listening to...and to counteract hate with education and dialogue...I don't agree with the message these people are sending...but i believe they have a right to send it...hopefully parents will be diligent in what their youngsters listen to and read...I have this same arguement with my play mother (who is black) about rap lyrics that degrade women...but believe it is the parents who need to step in...My roomie gets frustrated with me because i am always watching shows of this nature to keep myself informed...I live in Kansas where Fred Phelps has his church of hate and have been involved in demonstrating on the other side of the street from him...so i say ...get educated and stay involved...

I agree that they have a right to produce it.

I don't think they have a right to pass it out on school property.

I completely agree with you about a parent's responsiblity to be aware of what their kids are seeing/listening to, etc.

I agree too, willow. But I don't think a parent's responsibility to monitor their kids' influences absolves the makers of this game from producing and marketing such a sick, twisted, sadistic "game."

BTW, I talked to my 10-yr-old son about it just today, and he thought it was sick, too. Then he said the Kennedy family should sue. (Pretty smart, huh?)

someone's raising a financially savvy kid... :wink:

but yes, I do believe that the brunt of the responsibility is put on the parents as it should be. However, makers of this game and these CD's are marketing them to kids. And even if you try your damndest, kids will get into what kids get into. I guess you just hope that by that time, you've raised them with a sense of social responsibilty and the understanding of right and wrong.
