Over the years media violence has increased dramatically in our society and aspects of media like newspapers TV films videos Internet Violence along with sex and drugs are examples of moral panics Moral panics are when society cannot accept or adjust to vast changes or when groups of people or a new type of behaviour is seen as threat to society In these circumstances single issues can quickly become the focus of panic Recent moral panics in the media include explicit sex video-nasties drugs and violence and have raised many moral panics amongst society and voiced mainly by parents the government and individual pressure groups For this essay I will use media violence and its moral panics On the front page of the Southend Standard a freely distributed newspaper for Southend residents published on the 11th of February was an article about a comic book series that is widely available in Southend Library The comic contains detailed drawings of deviant sex drug abuse extreme violence and gore Local politicians are urging the boss of the Southend Library to remove this and other comic series similar in taste because this kind of material is not acceptable in our society especially for 12 year-old children The article appeals to pressure groups the Southend Bourgh Council and parents informing them of the negative effects on child behaviour that may arise from reading these images Voices should be welcomed in our society because it shows our concerns in that we as an audience decide on what is decent and acceptable to everyone The voices are there as guidance and as a sense of direction to prevent dishonesty in society that may effect it in negative behaviour I believe that children are most vulnerable to the effects of explicit material for they are young innocent and trustful towards the media because they cannot easily define by themselves the difference between right and wrong or how to act in society
