GROUP INTERACTION SKILLS 153Jerry: Hey, hold on. You saw how full the cinema was. Obviously, people love such movies. You canÂt impose your views. If you do not like such movies, you should stay at home. May: I should have. How was I to know that the movie would be so violent? Sue: I donÊt think there should be total censorship ... not for adults anyway. But I read somewhere that there may be a connection between watching violent films and acting violently. Jerry: Yes, there may be. But not all of us act violently after seeing such films. If people do so, then there is something seriously wrong with the person in the first place. May: But what about all those children and teenagers watching the film? This was a PG-rated movie. (PG = parental guidance) Jerry: You have a point there, May. Parents should supervise their children better and the cinema authorities should enforce such ratings. They should not have allowed children in without their parents. But this is different from total censorship which was what you were talking about, May. May: Okay, Jerry, you win. No total censorship. But next time, we shall see a comedy.
