Modern, violent entertainment is proof of humanities current civility. Yes, our violent media is a good
Human history is replete with examples of our desires to view violence. The difference between today and historical examples is the fact that, if we
were to watch two gladiators fight to the death, those fighters would most likely be Hollywood actors. So the entire enactment would be fake.
Unlike the Romans who would have taken the whole family to the Colosseum to watch the real-life bloodsport.
And don't forget that our ancestors loved public executions. They were wholesome family entertainment as well.
Our attitudes have changed for the better, and our current forms of entertainment reflect that. The majority would never tolerate that sort of
treatment of their fellow man.
