More thoughts on the knife ban

If society wishes to sublimate base desires and violent ways, I think abstracting those things into games and books might actually have a healthy effect. This may seem counter-intuitive, but I think there is something to it. If we are to live in a society that wont trust it's people with any sharp or dangerous implements (what about cars?), then I think a virtual space might be the best place for people to vent and play. Until we live in a padded, rubber world, this might offer the best transition.
