Lets face it we live in a violent world We can see it in many aspects of our surroundings and if we miss it we have a chance to see it played out again and again in the media There have been countless books and studies on violence in our society and on how to prevent it and what it all means there will no doubt be countless more But this book is about how that violence as it is dramatized on-screen in all its various forms affects our children and conditions them to be more violent than they would naturally become without being exposed to it Many have reduced this issue to a chicken-and-egg question does violence on-screen make people violent or is that violence merely mirroring what is actually taking place every day on our streets and around the world We think the former and we have the evidence to prove it The point is that kids are not naturally violent they are not born that way despite what we may think There are many factors in what makes anyone violent but the overwhelming proof says that the entertainment industry through violent programming and video games is complicit in conditioning our youth to mirror the violence they see on-screen Much like soldiers children can and do become learned in this behavior not by drill sergeants and trained military professionals but by what they see around them It seems logical to most of us but is still hotly contested by certain interest groups and especially in the many levels of the But before we present the facts on the negative effects of screen violence on children--how and why it is making them violent--we need to first look at the overall trends of violence at home and abroad--our culture of violence Essentially around the world there has been an explosion of violent crime Experts may disagree
