I understand your point, but it's very much a "chicken or the egg" or "nature versus nurture" situation isn't it? I think the only way to
"remedy" any such cycle, is to consider both chicken-and-egg as two aspects of the same cycle and see it for what it is..
Make certain Information taboo? people fetishize it all-the-more..
just like sexuality, when one is raised in a very restrictive environment where certain taboos are forbidden.. but spoken-of constantly haha. (I
think a few Christians sects come to mind........)
Fetishes are a way for people to provide an outlet to certain types of emotional energy that isn't being resolved in other ways.. Violence is not
We are told (at least
by our laws, if not our family and friends) that violence, sex, and drugs, are to be avoided all-together if possible,
and all of us "sinners" who "succumb to temptation" have to just do our best to only do what we must and stick to "lesser evils"..
I'm not trying to bring religion into it, but pointing out how the mentality of religion
is still imprinted onto most of us in America (and
most westernized countries it seems..) and if we were to become aware of it, people would be too in-tune with their environment and colleagues to be
SURPRISED when these people move towards an extreme like the kid in the OP.
