When does it stop?

One of the questions that I ask in my book is, "When, or at what point does the increasing depravity of the world stop?" A new example is the new kiddie porn movie shown at the Toronto film festival. While, the actress was 18 at the time of the filming, she depicted a 13 year old that was being abused by her adult neighbor, her father and engaged in sexual relations with her boyfriend all in graphic detail. One of the actors, Aaron Eckhart, rationalized his part in the movie by saying that it brought attention to child abuse. I think that you can make people aware of abuse without acting it out in great detail on the screen. While many who watched it walked out, many stayed and continued watching the film. How much longer will it be before no one walks out on filth like this movie? Our consciences and our sensibilities are being worn down by popular culture.
