The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artwork being shared by an acquaintance from here…
Diana B.: right. that’ll work!!! ppl who fight tribal wars, chop off heads and parts of babies, men, women and children need to see more pictures of dead people?! mmmk
Rayn: Jon Stewart is referring to America’s youth. It is impossible for the individuals you speak of “who fight tribal wars, chop off heads and parts of babies, men, women and children” to see war “as a video game where bodies quickly disappear leaving behind a shiny gold coin.”
Diana B.: yea, im not so sure most americans have that view of war, but i do think alot of kids have violent perceptions of the world due to whats on TV and in video games. thank Gd we cut our cable, best decision we ever made!
