  1. Hello and thank you for the important work you do. 🙂

    My name is Heidi Tilney Kramer and I’ve written a book entitled Media Monsters: Militarism, Violence, and Cruelty in Children’s Culture (exposing how kids are made to be addicted to war video games and how torture and other militaristic tropes now appear in kids’ films). I would love to send you a non-gratis copy in hopes it will help you with your work. 🙂 Please tell me the best address to use.

    To get a sense of what I focus on as a children’s studies/U.S. media scholar, I was on the Ralph Nader Radio Hour/podcast on Feb. 1, 2017 (40 or so mins in & about 10 mins long): https://ralphnaderradiohour.com/what-do-we-do-now-w-robert-reich/

    Or you could read my letter reprinted from countercurrents.org at the Hampton Institute: A Working-Class Think Tank at: http://www.hamptoninstitution.org/violence-childrens-culture.html#.WL9F6Yl5mc0

    Please note that I am the only one trying to bring attention to this in hopes of saving children worldwide.

    Thank you, Heidi
