I have been preaching this for 50 years. The entertainment/video game industries/ media are gigantic contributor for the violence in this country, possibly even more lethal than guns.
The people, mainly kids that are addicted to these brutal forms of entertainment, possibly can not separate reality from make-believe. These violent forms of so-called entertainment only incite the violent behavior in them. They kill thousands of people in video games, only to have them resurface 10 minutes later.
If they can’t separate the make-believe from reality, the boarder lines cases are pushed over the edge when they view such activity in video game, movies and other forms of what the industries likes to call entertainment. Folk$, is all about the money.
Unfortunately, the almighty dollars rules every facet of our lives.
If the baseball owner wanted to avoid injuries in their ball parks from foul balls or broken bats, they would have installed fencing long ago.
If the sports team owners wanted to eliminate drunks from their stadiums, they would not sell FIRE WATER.
If the entertainment industry wanted to do their part in eliminating violence, they would not make such horrific movies and videos games.
I do not believe that everyone is affected by the violence they see in videos It is the small minority of people that are pushed over the edge very easily and become very dangerous people.
If we would lock an alcoholic in a liquor, what would we expect them to do.
This is a list of video games considered controversial. Some of the video games on this list …. Sexual themes, drug use, racism, nudity, language, drunk driving, violence (against civilians and law enforcement officers). .… The game presents an ethical choice to players, whether to kill ‘Little Sisters’ for extra abilities or save
Jan 8, 2018 – Does watching violence on TV, in movies, or video games promote aggression? … These effects even exist in children, whether or not the gun is real or is … So can viewing violent media cause more aggression in children? … Does Media Violence Beget Real-LIfe Killings? is a reply by Susan Heitler Ph.D.
Aren’t some people mentally deranged enough, let alone the entertainment industrious contributing to their mental illness? PART OF THE SOLUTION is staring the big money people and the government right in the face. Are they doing anything about it?? Up until now. no and I expect it to change, it is all lip service tied into the big buck$$$.
Will the entertainment media ever capitulate and eliminate violent based movies and video?? Absolutely not. There is too much money at stake for them to do a turnaround.
When I make the statement that MANKIND IS DESTROYING ITSELF, this is just one example of it.
Along with my other recommendations that I laid out in a previous post; if these actions were implemented, it would make a tremendous difference in helping curtail the violence plaguing this country. BUTT, it will never happen and we can blame it all on power, greed and the almighty dollar$$$.
It has to be the responsibility of those close to these nutcases to turn them in when they see some out of the ordinary. So many times after the fact, I have heard that the cops were watching these people and they fell off the radar or someone close to them saw the signs , BUTT did not report them.
Number two: When these people are reported, the laws have to change so it gives the authorities the right to detain them for observation. Without both of these factors/actions working in unison, FA-GET-A-BOUT-IT, the mass murders are going to continue and get worse and worse.
Folks, we can not have our cake and eat it too. Either we take stronger/unpopular measures for correction or live with the consequences.
One positive/sick side to this deplorable scenario, the company that makes body bags, their business is really booming.
Not a very positive outlook. We are not safe anywhere we go these days. Now that school is starting shortly, we have to worry about the kids safety in the classrooms.
ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC AND VERY SAD
