Nonetheless, I find your lack of open-mindedness disturbing.

I'm actually a very open minded person, but that does not mean that one should accept anything in silence. I think you need to examine the video and its merits more closely, and think about why in the world some people are free and some are not. The foundation of civil society is for individuals to understand their base instincts and if necessary keep them in check. It is in our individual interests to do that. Letting our impulses run free is the road to tyranny. If others need to control us we cannot be free. If we can control ourselves, we at least have a shot at it.

Plus, not a ad hominem argument here, but looking down on people is usually a sign there is something wrong within yourself. For some, publicly judging something or someone else as valueless helps them feel more valuable because they suffer from such a horrible opinion of themselves. Moreover, their view gaining public approval is a sign they fit in better than they thought an helps how they feel about themselves.

Actually, I'm finding that I'm one of two sane people on the DF forums. Ha!

What a desensitized lot we have around here. Maybe I need to chop some people up so I can be a hit with the ladies like Prosnorkulus. Women love a man who needs no boundaries. I don't have to go to bed at 9:00 on a school night! I shall stay up past 10!

Cannot tell if troll, or bad humour.

Cephalo - the fact remains is that you know crap about the person who made the flash movie - for all we know, it could have been some sociology student writing his thesis on the subject of "Trolling clueless internet denizens with overblown graphic violence - part 1". He may be quite a cool guy who loves pulling people's legs, or he might be a neurotic wreck waiting to happen.

All your "analysis" here is just a bunch of your projections, you just need some mook to show your self-righteous moral kung fu on. The interesting question is - why do you need to? What drives you, what inner fear, wish, or hidden minervertichaikomplex? Lie on the sofa here, relax, and close your eyes. I will slowly count to ten, and when I am done, you will fall asleep...

The entire content consists of senseless murder, a pile of faceless naked women and zero regard for human life in general, all in the service of the protagonist's base impulses. It is clearly a cry for help from a neglected, self absorbed and disempowered juvenile badly in need of affectionate guidance. What a sad, sad display.

Damn, you're right.
This topic won't go any further without contacting the guy who made the animation.
There are people who apparently think violence is to ban from the media.
There are people who think that seeing violence in the media isn't all that shocking.
There are people who see second degree and enjoy it.

Now, after supporting violence, second degree and catharsis, I'm going to go watch my second episode of My Little Pony.

I am quite a bit thankful for the post that told me the contents of that flash.

I think this kind of flash is stupid anyway.

That's a fair question. I was just taking a break at work, and I ran across this filth. When this sort of thing comes up, somebody needs to get on the high horse and be the adult in the room. I just volunteered.

I don't hear a thank you!

EDIT: Gah! the post above this is a thank you. I uh... missed that. And thanks for the thanks.

So you justify your position with an argument of authority ("Clearly I am an adult, therefore I am right") and deny that anybody else might have a different yet valuable opinion ("Clearly I'm right, therefore your opinions are pointless").
What a wonderful parent you'll be.

This discussion is going nowhere. We might want to lock the thread before the flaming starts.
