Games "For nearly thirty years we've been having this discussion, asking the question: do violent movies, music or video games make people violent? Well according to Brad Bushman and Craig Anderson of Iowa State University, yes. Based on the results of their research they concluded in 2001 that video games and violent media can make people aggressive and violent. Based upon their data and their conclusions, however, it's safe to say that photos of snakes, crispy bacon, or a particularly rigorous game of chess can also make people aggressive and violent." And politicians?

I agree.

But saying all of them is a bit strong, there are always exceptions to the rule, Buddhism is the one in this case. The people fighting for a free Tibet rather burn themselves alive then use violence.

I guess Buddhism is the the copyleft license. ;-)

You can make it more general, it's believes. Believes is the biggest violence generator of them all.

Even killing gay people because they are gay. Which can be culture reasons, not just religious.
