Is television the leading cause of violence?

Post by Krisi » Sat Mar 01, 2008 1:21 am

Television is the leading cause of violence in today's society.

This was raised for debate in one gathering I attended a few years back and I find it interesting. You might want to share your idea on this.

What do you think? Agree or disagree. Why?

You have a point here Uncle B. But, the way I see it, it's more like an eye opener for me to know what's happening in other parts of the world. And aids my mind to learn what's good and evil, right or wrong, cruelties of man, etc.... and makes me think (and be cautious) that the world is one big jungle with a lot of snakes... :P

TV could make people short-minded, bad tempered, thick skinned, and idiotic. Watch gossip programs, then you'll experience one of them at least.

No people with guns are. If every person in the world carried a semi attmatic weapon people would be a little nervous about pulling out there gun.

Yes you're right. They are the one's that would cause violence if ever. The more dangerous it would be if the one holding a gun has no control.


( I made a mistake) :oops:

Not only TV Uncle B if that's what you want to express. :P Don't you think even the people around us are capable of making us appear in this way? :roll: :mrgreen:
