They goad us all our lives into becoming so numb that some of our number "tips" over the edge between reality and fantasy just enough to pick up a gun and murder as many people as they can. Thats by design you know.

Drug abuse works as a catalyst , too. Drug and none religious attitude helps those people feel more free , irresponsible and see they are free to pick a gun and kill other people.

Drug and irresponsibility works from inside.

Games , music , Movies , Porno and unstable family works from outside to motivate individuals toward a destructive behaviour.

I know some people have decided to torn America inside out.

But it is hard to teach American people. Because those elites have taught Americans that anyone is free to do anything.

And ruining a society is a part of anything.

Happy freedom.

If you think that movies and video games are responsible for the violent acts of a tiny minority of nut jobs then you really don't have a f**king clue about the world, life, people in general.

Your rant reminded me of the BS I used to hear in the 80's concerning Heavy Metal from the likes of Tipper Gore and the PMRC.

The blame game is always fitting for those who cannot fathom the complexities of this big scary world we live in.

You have as well as posting idiocy, have entirely missed the point of this thread.
Blame game?
Just ask why millions of human beings watch movies where human beings are butchered.
Go deep inside , see if you can find the answer.
Then you may understand , why this thread is valid.

It's called entertainment.

People watch violent films, listen to aggressive music, and play video games that simulate killing because they like to. And 99.9999999% of these people live normal lives and harm nobody intentionally. You theorise that we're somehow forced to watch films that contain violence? Utter rubbish.

Your idea that violent films are responsible for violent acts carried out by mentally unstable people is horsesh*t.

I made a thread or two on this issue but it would appear America loves the violence so much that they are in denial about the true causes of the rising violence. The media makes huge profits from it and most assuredly are secretly cheering it on to make more profits. America is glued to their TV sets so they can consume more and more of it. Like driving on the Interstate and there is a wreck on the other side, your side is clear, yet traffic stops due to gawkers that must see the tragedy. Hoping to see dismembered bodies first hand. The media is part and parcel of the problem as well as Hollywood but society puts them on a pedestal and ignores it.

You say in your last reply that people watch simulated violence in movies ect because they like it.
Then you go on to say that because 99.99 per cent of those people don't go out and kill in real life that , so therefore my argument is rubbish .
If you put your brain into gear , you may find something in your own words , that may reveal something to you.

Peace be with you.

It is good to read a sane post, in relation to this topic.
The German language contains a word for the act of gaining gratification from witnessing others misfortune.
I think violent tendencies are a part of most peoples genetic makeup.
But because we have souls, we choose to be peaceful on the whole.
I mean even Stalin the worst mass murderer of Christians in History, wasn't evil in his acts every second of every day.
LIke you say violent,depraved movies encourage , remind us , what we are all capable of.

They seed the souls minds.
Just as those who use religion to nurture suicide bombers do.
They deceive and make evil ......commonplace.
