Have you even played the game? If you did, then you would know that there are other ways to defend yourself. Sure, let's go out an teach our kids to run from every danger. THAT will teach survival skills! While we're at it let's also keep them from hunting (in real life or in a game) because that might possibly MAYBE given our tender little angels violent tendencies. there is a reason that mode of the game is called SURVIVAL mode. What will happen if our kids are stuck in a disaster situation, without parents or loved ones to help them? Sure, this won't teach the details or survival but it covers the basics: find shelter, fire, food. If you are threatened, have a means to protect yourself. Those basic skills are something kids can use in the real world, and doesn't promote violence. Hell, the local science museum here has a Minecraft exhibit! Do you seriously think they would subject our kids to senseless violence? No. It's a teaching game and that is that. Don't try to make it something it isn't.
