For parents, Scylla and Charybdis never seemed so large

I've been surfing assorted articles about "the pornification" of America (and Britain). Yes, steering children away from stuff like this is the parents' responsibility. However, parents used to be able to count on at least some support from the surrounding society. Instead, their values are mocked, their children's souls (& money) are angled for, and pop culture answers their objections with a brazen smirk. It's a lonely struggle, when you're outnumbered & out-gunned by greedy, sybaritic nihilists, for whom anything goes & therefore nothing matters except their own enrichment.
