What to do about Violence in Mass Media Does violence on television translate to violence in real life Does music influence our thoughts and actions to the point of criminal activity Did the Columbine tragedy result from violent video games My answer to all of these questions is a resounding no It is ludicrous to think listening to Eminem rap about killing somebody will actually make any sane person go out and commit such an act People just dont kill somebody because they hear it in a song Having said all that I do believe that there is a problem with violence and mass media when it comes to young and irrational people I dont think eliminating these pieces of expression is the answer to all our problems The best solution that I see is to tighten up our laws concerning graphic outlets of mass media Basically what I am saying is we need to make it tougher for kids to get there hands on this stuff Most of us agree that mass media violence should be excluded from children but we run into several debates thereafter First off How do we define who is and is not a child At what age does a child become an adult I could write a whole paper on this subject but to make it short I feel 18 is a solid age If you are old enough to die for your country then you should be old enough to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer Okay your thinking this sounds all good and well but there is no way to stop kids from getting their hands on these violent products While I agree that there are always people who will find ways around these rules I think we can tighten things up What I propose we do is make buying a explicit cd or getting in to see an r rated movie as hard as buying alcohol
