Good one LYsergic, Greenie.

I'm going to go one step further and simply blame our opressive society. I'm probably the only socialist Christian in existence...or at least that I know of anyway. My belief is this:

You do whatever you want as long as you don't hurt anyone but yourself, and it's up to *you* to decide what is morally correct and what is not. I can't tell you that Drugs are bad, or that sleeping with a different woman each night is immoral. That isn't my place to judge.

We wouldn't have so many "Ills" if we were more "Open". Take a country like Canada. Good example of a free-thinking society. You can shoot figures at me all day that attempt to dissprove it and I can shoot more back that back it up, but you can't deny the allure of that place.

We get too "Uppity" about little things like half naked women in a computer game or a movie where a kid kills himself. Big deal. If you keep acting like something is wrong, guess what? More kids will do it.

Give people a choice how to live, and let them deal with the consequences. Oppress people and try to make choices for them and soon you'll have a place like Taliban-controlled Afghanistan where you couldn't show a single inch of skin without being stoned.

i would definately partially agree with you...

self/other imposed guilt is a large part of the issue, in my opinion...
