Does the glorification of violence in Hollywood encourage the daily mass shootings in the US.


Hollywood loves violence because it sells. Assassinations, war, gang fights, Westerns. There are thousands of movies made by Hollywood where violence is the main theme. Thousands of people are shot dead in movies, without consequences. The law does not exist in movies. Do you think this violence has an impact on the society as a whole? You are not allowed to buy porn under the age of 18 in the US, but it's no problem to buy a first person shooter game or watch The Terminator as a kid.

    True, instead of pointing fingers we should have a look what causes the violence and aggression in a society and how to reduce it.

    I don't think it's the prime cause. Def not. but it doesn't help. tele, movies,games are so full of violence it detaches itself from the real world. In a movie you never see a funeral. Bad guys have family too! Take Darth Vader for instance ;-)

    Agree, it's the exposure. Human Beings are sadly enough cruel beings, but we have the brains to correct ourselves.

    Pers. I found lot's of Walt Disney far to violent for kids. It is the role from the parent, but the media also has a responsibility.

    In a way you're right. People do need a way to release there stress and tension. Going for a walk with the dog helps as well.

    I think though that everything you see and hear in your life has an influence. More so if you're a kid. Images have impact.
