The monopoly of the MPAA - Opinion
| April 05, 2011If an unelected committee whose membership is a secret dictated to all parents what their children are allowed to know and see, would that worry you? Would you feel like your liberties are being infringed upon? Though this scenario might sound like a feat worthy of Communist Party of the Soviet Union, I am, in fact, talking about the Motion Picture Association of America’s current stranglehold over movie ratings. While the institutionalized exclusion of teenagers from the consumption of art is problematic in itself, I will argue that the MPAA’s peculiar choices of which content to restrict further exacerbate the issue.
