    Seriously, you're right, it's only going to happen by changing the market for that stuff. Totally. It's not corny, it's really the only way it's going to happen in a way that both liberals and conservatives can deal with, ie, without censorship. IMO, the censorship thing is the common ground. True conservatives hate it (though they are a dying breed), and so do progressives.

    As far as local censorship is concerned, I'm not so sure it's a good idea. Love him or hate him, but John Waters suffered under it. There's still a town in New York State that has a warrant out for his arrest for obscenity! For years his films could not be shown in Baltimore. I suppose if local towns want to try something puritanical, OK, but what that does is make people against violent media look like prigs. Your public pressure approach is, alas, probably the only thing we've got because Hollywood, for the most part, only understands one thing: money.
