I voted for "The morals the internet is pushing on our kids "...seriously.
I think it's an important issue only in the negative sense, ie. any politician that blames the internet for the 'moral decline' of America immediately earns my contempt.
I'm tired of pol's scapegoating the internet (or the media for that matter) rather than addressing the real issues.
Has America declined, morally, in the last dozen years? The last fifty? I don't know, but my sense is that it has not. It seems that many a pol who longs for the "good old days" convientiently forgets things like the relative unequality of women in the workforce (as well as society in general) widespread poverty, institutional racism, etc...
Either way, I think the 'net is more of a mirror to morality that a causal factor, but it's always easier to blame something when most of the population doesn't really understand it.
