I believe violence like sex is pretty much has been used in this country like Steve pointed out to sell products but the public is not bunch of bricks they do get influence. That is my essential point that violence is there under our skin but it does not have to manifest in civilized society unless it becomes a driving force to condition and brainwash public to flack their valets to buy the crap.
Unfortunate, but this is a age old reality human kind has faced over its existence, gradually and thru times concept of what old Greek idea of democracy had been manipulated over the times just like the holly books, but its a mystery however how human mind can develop and "progress" over times giving the total freedom, in this case the under the umbrella of "democracy" to thrive. Man kind intend to head just for the opposite direction, speaking of violence, and what or how much man kind is capable of, look thru the centuries of its existence and there is no shortage of "creativity"
I remember seeing “bowling for columbine” I wish this was made by someone else, however, attitude of its government does reflect the attitude of its people (in this case violence in USA). I ask you, do you think government and religious public figures like Jerry farTwell, who goes on 60 minutes and makes a statement such as “Islam is a religion of terror and Mohamed was a terrorist” is helping for a gentler Nation? Less violent Nation? Collective and organized Violence in the name of what? Humanity? God! And same can be said about radicals of every religion. That’s what it is, the good old God, Allah, Buddha, who has been used and God is continues to be used as a weapon, 70 million of evangelical Christians in this country are supportive of such a violent statement by this man, and you tell me if this has positive affect as far as reducing violence here in a USA, personally this kind of brainwashing makes me sick to my stomach!!! As long as those voices who oppose and needs to be heard are continue to be silenced. We are governed by natural law after all, when there is a matter then there must be always antimatter for human survival.
