Question description

One viewer's realistic portrayal of life—including coarse language, violence, or sex - may be another's example of the decline of societal decency. No matter the interpretation, people keep watching film and TV, listening to music, and playing video games that push the standards of decency. Does artistic integrity or profit drive new pushes into bolder territory? What role does society play in what it sees, hears, and plays?
