There are two universal human taboos in every functional society, variations in definition do not change this. They are 1) the Incest Taboo and 2) The Child Abuse Taboo. There is no where that you can go and yell out in the local dialect "Someone is hurting a child" without knowing that every adult within hearing is heading to your location. Yelling "Help Murder" or "Free Beer" will not do that. The callous inducement of fear in children, like the relentless sexualization of children by the same media groups, is clear child abuse.
