    Do you have a fascination with violence?

    Studying significant violent events through the modern days and consider issues such as political violence, terrorism and representation of violence in art, literature and films one has to admit: 'we are bloodthirsty lot'. Violence is not only a fundamental part of our history but also of our modern time. What is your attitude towards violence?

    Recently I had some time in hand, and I would be sitting around with my parents in the early evening, sharing a cup of tea and watching their favorite television programs. All of a sudden, we all three of us began to feel that it was getting pretty depressing and suffocating to view the soaps in the prime time slots, with the gruesome family violence and pessimistic melodrama. I think we are all developing this taste for blood- thanks to media and entertainment too, where the ugly and oppressing are now served as engrossing, and people of all age are watching this and gradually developing first an ability to bear with violence and then an unconscious affinity to it. Unless we consciously switch ourselves off from all such violent entertainment, and bar our children from the violent news, without stopping from being alert and defensive and oppose violence within our individual and social abilities - the trend to violence will be on the rise. We are gradually immunizing our children from feeling any pain  and rather enabling them to enjoy violence.

    I try to avoid violence in all aspects of my life, but it is becoming more and more difficult to do so. You open newspaper, headlines scream at you informing you about the violent acts across the world in the last 24 hours. Switch on the TV; again, it is the same. New channels thrive on violence. I admit that they can't change what is happening in the world, but they can always use their sense of propriety in reporting the events. Movies, sit-coms and even kid's channels are full of violence. Most often, I end up watching cookery shows, because they do not show violence. Though I am not much interested in cooking itself!

    I can be violent. Anybody can. Most of us keep it inside us and blow their gaff suddenly for no reason anybody can work out. Some violence is necessary to ease the pressure. My violence is limited, some involve others and before long the population gets thinned out here, there and everywhere. That's called war. It's institutionalL "You're inferior, we're going to prove it", or "We were here first, s*d off back where you came from!"
    There's another kind of violence that's institutional, it's called the VAT man,
    "You owe us, cough up or we'll send in the boys in black".
    And then there's another kind,
    "If you want us to be your friends, buy the numbers". That's a protection racket. Does it sound any different to this:
    "If you vote for me, I'll make sure your wallet will stay in your pocket".
    That's politics.

    Not since I sold my TV four years ago, now it rarely makes an appearance in my life. Just what I see on the computer and in various News stories on the Web, take for instance the soldier that massacred all those folks in Afghanistan.

    Their is more to that story than anyone will ever know, sure folks are capable of pure evil but that takes some sort of mind control.
