First is government intervention, reduce the content of media violence. From the origin of the media to eliminate negative information, government should make legal view by relevant policies and laws and forcibly remove violence in the media. For example, the Sweden government has the media violence committee, on film, television, video, computer games and computer networks and other media for violence and show any negative effects to pay close attention. Second is Parents ' supervision and guidance, some parents complain that full control over what their children watch and do what is impossible. Although it is difficult to control the child 's media habits, but this does not mean to give up work.
They would watch gladiators fight and kill each other before they could find their violent entertainment in television. Most people won’t admit that they like violence in television, movies, and video games, but I think that they offer a way to see the violence without actually hurting anyone. If we censor or ban it, we will be forced to find our violence elsew... ... middle of paper ... ... is engulfed with opinion and restrictions on studies that are looking for a single answer, in most cases one that points the finger at violent media. But, if we can properly make parents and people aware with good information, we can start paying attention to the real problems, rather than television, movies, or video games. Our society would become much better overall as well.
To start censorship on Network television may seem like a small threat to our rights, but will become so much more. With censorship television shows and producers would not be able to freely show what they want their viewers to see. It in turn is the exact same as telling someone they can not say something they wish to say. Censorship may stop our children from seeing violent acts on t.v., but in return will take away one of our most precious rights as Americans. In addition to loss of one of our basic rights, it seems unlogical to censor network t...
As a result, when adults are exposed to programs including offensive language and behavior, they do not take it serious and perhaps feel more relaxed. Moreover, in a democratic country, individuals have the right to choose what they love to see as long as they do not breach the law. To sum up, to set a single standard in the censorship of all programs is inappropriate and irrational. It is better to use different criterions to censor broadcast media according to different groups of audience. Government should rigorously censor programs provided for children while do l... ... middle of paper ... ... On the other hand, censorship on adult programs that broadcasted mainly at night could be less or even none.
With the increase in society taking a stance against violence by many people, sports has become an area where some feel that the violent acts such as the hitting and fighting that occurs should be eliminated. You can not change something that has been around for so long because it would change the aspect of the game to something completely different. The elimination of violence should not be done in sport because the violence is a part of the game which would only hurt its popularity. The reasons that the violence is occurring in sport is due to six theories according to John Schneider. "The violence in sport mirrors the violence found in society, violence as the result of economic incentives, the influence of crowd behavior on player violence, genetic causation for player aggression, learning theory and player aggression, and psychological stress and player violence" (Lapchick 230).
Stopping the flow of ideas for any reason is detrimental to our growth as a society, and political correctness does just that. I would also like to discuss the aspect of possible danger because of political correctness. There may come times where people’s very lives could be at stake. Also, political powers often use the excuse of political correctness to inhibit and prevent certain ideas they may not agree with from being debated. We must also consider hate crimes, and whether a person’s beliefs and associations should be considered sufficient to secure a criminal
It is the use of excessive physical force, which causes or has obvious potential to cause harm or destruction. Violence in sports is not limited to men. When women do violence in sport, it may be seen as a sign of commitment or skill, but it’s not seen as proof of femininity. But athletes learn to use violence as a strategy, even though it may cause pain or injury. Violence in sports is not new to our society, but the violence of the spectators has increased.
Then there is a range of contact sports, particularly the football codes, where there is punishing body contact within the rules but also the scope for borderline or unintentional "violence" such as late tackles, high tackles and tackles on players without the ball. These tactics can be, and are also, used intentionally. However, the use of video replays over recent years has made these tactics more risky for the perpetrators, especially in professional sports where suspension can lead to a significant loss of income. As we enter the year the beginning stages of 2005, one has to wonder if this violence is going to continue or if the leagues, sports and the people themselves will start to gain some kind of control and realize this is sprot and such violence cannot continue. The fans are even getting themselves invovled.
The reality is mixed martial arts happens to be one of the safest sports in its genre of Contact Sports because of strict safety standards. In 1993 an idea was born; the idea was to figure out what the most effective form of martial arts was. This idea was called the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). It was a tournament in which fighters from various disciplines would face each other in an octagon shaped ring with a fence around it, which is referred to as the cage. There was no time limit and the only rule was in order to win you must knock out your opponent or he must submit; this might seem familiar due to the Hollywood film “Fight Club” which involved a group of individuals competing in no holds barred bare knuckle fights.
The first theory suggests that humans are "inherently violent and sport is a relatively safe and controlled way to discharge aggression." The psychological theory says that violence is caused by frustration as one's efforts to reach a goal are blocked. The social learning theory explains that violence might be officially condemned and penalized but unofficially coaches, teammates, fans, and the media praise it. All three of these theories are accurate and can be used to explain the need for violent sports in our society. Smith feels that violence in sports can be either reduced or eliminated by doing a few simple things.
