    I remember when that was a hot button issue in the 80s and 90s.Defense attorneys were blaming violence on TV for turning their juvenile clients into murderers. I never felt the question was ever decisively answered.

    Now it’s all about the violence in video games.

    “Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise…Then the God of peace will be with you.”St. Paul, Letter to Philippians.

    How boring is THAT ?!

    There are lots of ways of relieving tension, frustrations or anger – I did it in college with a piano – going from fist pounding to finger playing. Others pound tree stumps or physical exercise.

    Unfortunately, not all methods of relief target inanimate objects.

    Off subject, but I was just thinking about Calvin making snowmen/sculptures in snow buried Boston.

    Agree with Nab – but for the weekly Journal Editorial Report and an additional 5 minutes of Dennis Miller, I watch no television at all. Don’t need the drama in my life.

    They’ve done these tests. Violence doesn’t increase, but aggression does. Folks get more aggressive after interacting with violent media. But that doesn’t necessarily increase violent acts.

    @ leftwingpatriotShows how fast (not) our government works….a meeting for this and a meeting for that…a billion for this and a billion for that…However, I do not want to talk about government … That’s why I like to read C&H.

    Superbowl ad costs over $4 million for 30 seconds to influence your behavior. Watching violence for hours on end …

    Lots of violence on TV desensitizes us to violence … on TV. Ask any veteran if watching Looney Tunes desensitized him/her to warfare.

    “Cause”? Since when does any psychological event “cause” another, like they were billiard balls bouncing around? Calvin has it right: influence. And it goes back to the Iliad. At least. And the counterintuitive fact is that there is much less violence now than before there was TV. We will have to wait for Psychology to develop a theory.

    That’s all there ever is on TV now. Violence, Crime, Reality TV.

    YAWN!

    Alan Dean Foster, “Quozl”, a core theme that the aliens watch violent entertainment and play violent simulation games to DRAIN all of their violent impulses, to “get it out of the system” through non-real violence, precisely to PREVENT their tendency towards violence.
