Do you think that our world has become more violent than ever before?

+2 votes

As the world progresses, I find that our world has definitely become a lot more violent in any type of domestic/ international conflicts (e.g. wars), and in terms of the level of violence that is seen in popular media (e.g. cartoons, TV shows, movies, video games, computer games, comic books, books, music, etc).

Violence is inevitable and almost mandatory in our modern day world, as it has always somehow been a natural part of who we are human beings.

The violence in the media has gotten much more worse and much more graphic, with much more violent action scenes being included in any well-known popular cartoons, TV shows, movies, video games, computer games, comic books, books, etc).

When people are subjected to violence in the media on a regular basis, their tolerance and threshold is certainly going to increase even further than before, and they will want to and need to watch and experience even more violence in the media to become happy, satisfied and fulfilled.

Therefore, the producers of any violent media is going to have to increase the level of violence in their own media to an even greater amount and extent, in order to keep their viewers and fans happy, satisfied and fulfilled.

The most violent media usually is able to generate the highest amount of revenue and profits than other low or non-violent media, given the fact that the average viewer prefers to watch violent entertainment than non-violent entertainment for their own personal enjoyment and recreation.

Probably everybody hates everybody nowadays in ten years we're predicted to not even form intimate relationships having a more perfect virtual mate.

No. History repeats itself.  Try living during WW1 or WW2.. Or even way before that.  Human beings will always be violent. My father who is 81 has lived through a lot tells me, nothing is shocking to him because he's seen it before.

The world will progress and change.  People however will not.

What EJ said.   No.

No, I don't think it has grown more violent. Civilization has become more desensitized to it because of its accessibility...

No, it's actually safer.

But hate groups like the BLM are trying to change that.

Hmm not sure, it does seems so.  One thing for sure, it will get worse with racist Trump and his KKK buddies.

Anyone with a basic knowledge of world history knows that what is happening today is nothing compared to the past.

I don't think it's more violent. The violence is just different. The violence is random and so you have less spaces you feel safe in. Before you could select a warzone and stays thousands of miles away, unaffected. Now the violence finds you. In movie theaters, concerts, restaurants. In your sleepy home town. The violence comes looking. The battlefields are migratory.

As for violence in my TV shows and the like... I don't know. Seeing it is one thing, even if it makes me cringe, but I don't think that could ever stop the shock or repulsion I'd feel if I'd seen a real person treated similarly. I do think we should stop trying to out-gore each other in all things.
