I have seen many movies that have been very violent, involved pornography, or had extremely ruthless behavior. I just want to hear the thoughts on other people and if they agree that Hollywood is not good for our society and if you disagree say why.
Everything is going according to my plan.

Did the movies cause you to go out and be violent, ruthless and sexually promiscuous?

Hollywood has both positive and negative impacts. On one hand, it definitely promotes nonsensical behavior and reinforces stereotypes, and I think we allow it to have a great deal of undeserved influence in our culture. My favorite actress, Jennifer Lawrence, admits that this is a problem; she actually did an interview a few weeks ago in which she said that the general public should not glamorize uneducated people like her. On the other hand, it can be a force for change and can highlight social problems. It's not wholly good or wholly bad.

Free speech, just like every other right we enjoy, has side effects. You don't like it? Move to The USSR, you pinko-commie-fascist.
