The oft stated/implied message: average people want this,

i.e. to rape and murder their fellows, is corrosive, dehumanizing--- for the viewer, Chris. Not all, most, or many rich-and-powerful people are rapists/murders. Insensitive to those beneath them, supporters of cruel social policies, yes; active participants in cruel slaughter? No. The armed forces learned long ago that for GIs to participate in actual combat killing, they had to be "programmed" by rigorous psychological conditioning--- and even so, in battle, many fired not at the enemy, but at the general vicinity (reported and supported in "The Mask of Command," by a fellow (John Keegan) who long taught at England's most prestigious officer training college).

There is NO artistic, philosophical, or moral purpose to showing such repeated, graphic, gruesome, and sadistic behavior--- it is, to be blunt, voyeuristic and extremely violent pornography. It isn't the mere depiction of said acts, it is their exceptionally (and I mean that, exactly) graphic, repeated, and casual use: this is textbook gratuitousness.
