We need to understand a few facts before we can even
start working towards correcting the current multimedia policy of
targeting children with violent programs/products. The way of
approaching the issue needs attention.
We need to consider:
In business everything is about making a deal: I have something you might want to possess, what will you pay to get it? The price depends on supply and demand.
Who creates such demand? It is the consumer. And who are these consumers? It is you and I.
Here is your Power Key:
It is time to look at some basics of economic theory and some forgotten words. Let us not forget what we are: apart from being parent/s we are consumers who generate economic activities. We work the whole week, receive our paycheck and plough back most of that money into buying what we need for consumption. Producers become wealthy by producing products that people would want and need. If they produce something that people reject, they will be stuck with worthless inventory and that is the last thing these producers want to happen.
Rejecting a product is the ultimate blow to any producer. The only culture any businessman recognizes is – money. He would avoid any business like a plague if it has no Return On Investment (ROI).
This is the mantra. The key is to disturb that ROI. Only you can exercise this power as a consumer. No law by the government or research material by medical association can match this power. A product can stay on the store shelves only because you want it to be there. It stays there only on your support. If you pull your support, it is history.
Let us use our consumer power and say NO to all Entertainment Violence products targeted at our children.
