Violence

Good Essays
Some people say that violence on TV produces violence in real life, while others disagree. This is a question of social science that has been studied for a long time and quite extensively, eventhough the research was not satisfying. Nevertheless if you have or don't have an opinion of your own, read on so you might change it or not, but it will definetely give you some idea what to say next time the question comes up.
To start with the fact that there are many different types of media all around us, everywhere and every moment of the day, I wouldn't say that violence on TV has the only influence on the real life. So why wouldn't it affect real life, why wouldn't it cause violence both at home and abroad. There are many increasing reports of violence around the world.

To sum it up, media violence can make some people more aggressive in some and situations for some period of time, but it all depends how much distiction you make between real life and games or shows. It depends how much awareness we have about this problem. I will not deny the fact that TV violence has influence on us, but not on all of us. That's the point of everything, nothing will ever be 100%, nor we will ever be able to conclude something this big and say this is it.
