5 Words: The medium is the message.

No, I think it is the other way around.

In my opinion, violence in our society does not reflect violence in the media. In fact, it is the opposite. Violence in the media reflects the violence that already exists in our society. Someone has to create the video games we play, for example, so it goes without saying that the person creating them makes them violent and aggressive based on their own perceptions and views of brutality. Even without the violent video games, society would still continue to get more and more violent because the problem of violence does not lie in the games we play, but in the people that we are.

Exactly

I don't think the media causes violence, but we have come to a point now where it seems to make the next young generation believe that violence is acceptable in our society, and that is troubling. I don't have a problem with watching a program with violence as long as someone is explaining to the teenager etc. that the violence shown in the program is in no way acceptable behaviour. Letting children loose to watch and absorb the information from the media alone without meaningful discussion is the real problem.

Violence we encounter is because because people are a$$holes. Plain and simple.

Correlation does not imply causation

Actuallyte point of Bowling for Columbine was that consantly showing real violence in newscasts makes people fearful and paranoid, not violent. The correlation is supposed to be that fearful and paranoid people are more likely to do stupid things - including using violence when it isn't necessary.

No, I think it goes the other way. We are violent people who bring violence to the media.
