Video games ought to be made.
The rating system out to be appropriate.
I love Mario and Donkey Kong.
They are like Twilight Zone and Happy Days.
When I criticize the effect of art on a culture
I say it mostly prescriptively for the audience to choose.
In that is their right to choose,
But we must be taught to choose right.
Otherwise, anything should be published.
But it ought to be clearly rated.
I say this,
Having seen the effect on culture
To ban all products that could cause trauma.
We, as parents—and as responsible adults—
Ought to censor ourselves.
Do not assent my political opinion
To want to ban video games or books
Or television shows.
Rather, we ought to simply
Raise a huge fuss about it
Like I’m prone to doing.
