Roll Safe Think About It Meme | MPAA RATINGS AREN'T AGE-BASED. THEY ARE GUIDES FOR PARENTS TO BE AWARE OF BEFORE TAKING THEIR CHILDREN TO THE MOVIES. | image tagged in memes,roll safe think about it | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
In the past few years there have been more PG-13 rated domestic films than any other rating. Up until about 5 years or so ago, an R rating was a kiss of death to big budget studio movies.

It is for the benefit of parents to know what movies are appropriate for their little ones, hence, it is age-based.

However, I'm in agreement with you that there have been more PG-13's than R rated but that's beside the point. We have more movies with the two ratings than we do with G and PG. That, you cannot deny.

We in the West prided ourselves in the fact that we are more enlightened and evolved than the generations before us.

We are more learned and more humane; we possess greater tolerance for others than ever before, and we have governances that answers to the people, rather than the other way around.

And yet it seemed that we've also are going the way of the Roman Empire as we are so driven by our desire to see the gore, suffering of others, and the bodies of the opposite sex.

What's more alarming is that we do not have the same reverence and respect for law and authority anymore in how we see our parents and law enforcement.

In addition, we are increasingly calling bad "Good" and good "Bad". The rise of the "Anti-Heroes" is an indicator as well as too many of us loving Gangster Rap which glorifies gang lifestyle and the objectifying of the female gender.

And at the same time, we jeer the older generation who have a low view of Millenials (not all fit the image and yet you can't deny that there's enough of to create a reputation) and moralist groups as we look for any signs moral failings as an excuse to not listen to them.

Are we going the way of the Roman Empire?

If things continue the way they are, then we will.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION:
While "G" is for all and yet we have far more movies for the "PG-13's" & "R's". While I know the ratings are age-based, the fact that we have a myriad of sadistic and sexualized movies is revealing. Let's see the current movie ratings we have today: "G" is for the General Audience; "PG" are for kids needing Parental Guidance; "PG-13" is for the more mature audience; & "R" is for... huh.... What does that say then, about us?
