This is it. I'm actually from Europe, but from that part where there no so much censorship.Mary Hatch Bailey wrote:Believe me, ethics have nothing to do with it...IOP wrote:Mary Hatch Bailey wrote:As an American, brought up by fairly strict or at least conventional Catholic parents in the 70s ~ I am still shocked at the amount of swearing in Singapore.

Yeap, I think here they copy too much form Hollywood productions...
In reality, I have heard that US is more ethical then it seems to be for outsiders.
I will say, the US is a lot more puritanical than most people realize. Europeans can't understand why we get all kerfluffled about sex on TV, or swearing but our collective cultural experience is different and in a lot of ways, more uptight and rigid.
I remember the boom of American movies. So many people started to copy from those movies: swearing, criminal, offence, sex.
No if you come to my country, we have everything on TV, and youth absorbs it.
When gov. trys to ban it, young people starts to shout that we do not have democracy in the country and should take examples from more civilized western countries like US.
We don't have special signs on TV which indicate that this program for adults only, like in US. And youth thinks that it's right and US has the same standards.
Anyway, it's not about US or Hollywood, it's about spreading bad things - bad is always easier to spread.
