Australian film critic says Aussie ratings are turning people into criminals


During a video interview with Byteside, Australian film critic Margaret Pomeranz has said that the current Australia’s classification system is turning middle class citizens into criminals.

Speaking out regarding South Australia's Attorney General Michael Atkinson, she stated:

"You have one AG calling the shots for all of Australia. It must be very frustrating for videogame players who do want to play R rated games.

“It’s the start of danger, where you have a government effectively saying this is what we will allow you to see. Fortunately, they have very little power these days because we can see anything we want, as long as we are prepared to break the law.

"What you are doing is turning middle class people into criminals.”
