This show is old [1981, I believe]…As such, the political and social landscape has changed tremendously…Some of the things they say, really are no longer true…Like the way they claim law enforcement is oblivious, and nobody is doing anything…
…At this point in time , some thirty years later…we have seen a dizzying, nightmarish flip-flop, going from one apparent extreme to an opposite and undeniable, obsessive extreme, in which hatred of sexual minorities is allowed to hide and thrive under the guise of “saving children”.
All the same…extremely bad things do happen in this world…And we serve nobody well [including ourselves], by denying the problems of the world we live in.
Many of the things talked about on this show, are behind why I do not support or endorse child prostitution.
It is hard to go through this, and clearly separate the propaganda from sound fact and statistics…yet, I believe it is wrong to ignore these kinds of issues.
Just keep in mind while watching…there is normally some amount of truth and some amount of skewed exaggeration, in these kinds of shows. The setting and structure is big city, with “government involvement”…not at all common.
To my mind…the issues discussed here, are far more about the continued lack of child and youth empowerment, than anything else. These kids were abandoned, as disenfranchised parts of our society.
