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'm sorry, I'm still laughting with yout post title:

"People take this stuff too lightly"

Well, OF COURSE we do. Why? Because this stuff is just the BIGGEST FOOLISHNESS on the human history.

Must I remember you that it was "normal" to sell your childs, abandon them to their luck, starve to death and having to kill for eat, etc. a century back? (I know that also happens nowadays)

If you say "seeing/reading" (movies, books) or "interacting" (games) just make them violent, oh, wait, actually DOING WORST THINGS would have made the humanity not humans but MONSTERS.

Seriously, you should LIVE more and LET LIVE the others. Stop being ignorants.

Should I remember you that who wanted to rip Snow White's heart out of her chest was HER MOTHER?
