media violence: images displaying disturbing images of violence, murder, rape, sex horror
media violence is very common in america to where we dont even recognize it anymore, i mean you turn on the tv the next thing you see are two cartoon characters fighting, may seem harmless to us, but not for a group of kids in oklahoma, they were watching japan anime and saw a guy kick someone right in the mouth so they tried fighting each other for fun, no one got hurt, but whats disturing about this is not only that it happens everyday in society, but what causes these actions? is it what we see on tv, since 2004 more teenagers spend 5/16 of their 7 days watching tv, who know what could they be seeing, you might be thinking v-chips will solve it. well most v-chips only block certain sohws rated something because it has more categories example something might be blocked for violence, sexual content, language, nudity, than blocking just a movie that has violence. even when the v-chip works, it blocks again regulated basic cabel channels, not hbo, cinemax, stars, etc. dr stouss says there is no real solution to solving this, because the human mind is capable of anything that it wants to accomplsh, meaning if a kid wants to watch pornography real bad, he will find a way, what causes this though? not only are these materials exploted through tv so not only are we trapped by our eyes, but by our ears. everyday we hear music and we nodd our heads and sing along to the beat. as were doing that the lyrics are typed in our head and we dont know what were saying it just sounds cool. one of the most common songs today is candyshop, i see people singing this song, and it disgust me to hear guys sing those lyrics. music is one of the most powerful forms of media, because it inspires us, it changes how we think about issues, what we want to be when we grow up, and it gives us a new life stlye, sure there are labels, but there are people who take off the labels, for instance in washington a kid was caught with theft of over 14 cds, most of which were rap, with parental advisroy, what do you think made this kid want to go out and risk his future just to hear 50 cent say your a pranksta because you never popped none? the only solution i think to this is read the lyrics to what your about to listen to, see if you like it, because if people see you listening to music descriptively describing sex, how to murder, gangs, rape, child abuse, it just shows who you are. another problem with media violence today are video games, i remember when i was 5 playing sonic the hedchog on sega genisis, 10 years later im glued to the screen watching aliens blow up picking out all sorts of weapons to easily defeat my enemy. why do we do this? the most popular game out to day is gta san adreas, its real fun you get to pick up prosttiutes kill anyone gamble, steal cars, beatup people, cuss people out, graffiti, destroy things, be in a criminal gang, murder, the unlimited list of guns you can choose, it so great...right? there have been 100,000 stolen copies of this game the question is why would peole want to steal something with this graphic material? there not so amny solutions to this, mine would be just be careful what you play.another from of media violence is one which slips by us without us even knowing, books. there some books out there that tae you away into another world, and escape from reality but there are some books out there that promote hate, racisim, violence, anti semeitcsm, such book as the turner diaries favored by neo nazis, and kkk members, this book is horrible, it gives details of things that will make your somach turn, to where if your racist, you will want to go out and kill, it is that serious, another book is the anarchist cookbook, this book is just a recipe book on how to make very lethal homemade bomsbs, nothing serious right? there might be some people who are not affected when they read this book, but did you know that on page 65 paragraph 3 is a recipe on how to make a bomd capable of blowing up massive buildings, dont believe me ask Timothy McVeigh oh wait you cant for he was excuted for commiting the oklahoma boming, the book was found on his shelf right next to his bibe, why would people publish such books? ive been asking why people do that, and do this the whole time, my theory is they see tv, music, games, books, as something that wont yell at them, be mean to them they escapse from the crap they go through in lives by killing megapixel characters, listening to something that wont yell at them and judge them but feel accepted, dont believe me? 2 boys there whole lives they were picked on for being different, which made a little spar, no one ever asked them if they wanted help, they felt alone, they felt cold, but inside there hearts they wanted revenge and they got there revenge april 20th 1999 they stepped into there high school columbine rebels and killed. some of us may know people like that all you can do for them and all they want is help, and love. my nimber one question is not to a person, but a system, why do doesnt the governement try to stop these things by taking action and getting rid of it? is it because its the of freedom press? but the law dosnet matter when it comes to war, because america went into iraq illeagally without the UN's permission and why to protect our freedom, our lives? arent those things on the line everyday because media violence is everywhere and the effects are follwed through everyday.why do i think the government hast tyed to really stop it, is because for every book, every game, that is bought there maing money off it, and why would they want to end a money supply,and why turn off all violent behavior shown on tv, because they know that violcence causes crime, and they know that when there is crime we are scared, and we are willing to doa nything to be safe again, and believe eveything they say just to convice that we are out of harms way again. my opinion on this listen to what you want to listen to, watch what you want to watch, read what you want to read, if your mature enough to control yourself.
