Violence is a growing problem that affects everyone. It has become worse over the last decade, and I believe that the cause of this is a growing acceptance of violence in society.
This acceptance is becoming more and more apparent, in school and at home, but especially in the media today. I believe that one reason this increase is occurring is because people have grown accustomed to it being a form of entertainment and people are generally more likely to watch something involving violence than something without it. Violence, in essence, is part of the human nature and will most likely always be considered entertainment to some, and it is this fascination with violence and the fact that many believe that violence solves everything that I believe is keeping the human race back from reaching a new step towards true peace. Violence has been portrayed by the media in many ways and it is the shows that have a lot of violence that usually have the highest ratings. One of the best examples of this is Wrestling.
Although the people responsible for these responsible for these wrestling matches do attempt to add an interesting story to how the events unfold, in essence, wrestling popularity derives from people wanting to see the violence in these wrestling matches. Even though most people know that everything that happens during these matches are fake, and that these moves are done in a way as to not significantly injure the other person, the felling of wanting to see someone get beaten up by another person drives them to want to see it again and again and again, sometimes completely refusing to believe that it is staged because of their need for the violence. One of the main problems with wrestling is that little kids see this on TV and start to believe that this is the normal way of acting.
WCW vs. WWF The World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling have been battling for the top rated television program for about three years. Some people think that there is a clear favorite and other think that it is too close to call. Some of the aspects of one program are not shown in the other program but both have very strong cases. The World Wrestling Federation is my favorite ...
These kids believe that when something is not going right or they are mad at someone, that other person should be slammed through a table or beaten senseless. These kids do not realize that the wrestlers they see on TV are acting and are not truly beating each other senseless. All these kids see are two grown men , or women, doing this a believing that this is okay. Then these kids attempt these wrestling moves that they have seen on their friends, and often this can cause serious injury, and even death. Also, in the news, it seems that all that is ever reported are the worst things that have happened. It is always about someone who has been brutally murdered or someone how has been mangled or killed in a gruesome way in an automobile accident. The reason for this is again because most people are captivated by the violence factor, and would rather hear about something horrible happening to someone than hear about the good things going on in the world.
The same concept applies during actual life. An example of this is that while driving and someone sees an accident, they will say to themselves that they hope no one was hurt and that there is nothing gruesome to see, but they will always slow down and look, because human nature makes them interested in the fact there may be a mangled body or some other sort of blood and/or guts.
