Mind the Gap: Does watching violent movies inspire violence in the real world?
My answer is yes, violence begets violence, fictional or otherwise.
Hear my thoughts anyway, if you don’t mind…
Children are vulnerable to environment. If you teach them godly attitude towards life and people around them, there is a high chances that they will grow-up respectful, responsible and compassionate. But if you teach them or the environment around them bad attitudes or negative vibes, then there is a higher risk of growing-up as thug, unlawful and vicious. I’m not taking it as general because there are some lucky children who by their immature stage learned to be responsible enough to know what’s right and wrong.
Watching movies is a form of environment. As young as they are, they cannot distinct which is fictional and which is reality. And let’s face the truth; we were amazed by the stories and effects of these movies that sometimes we duplicate them. It inspires us, in good or bad way.
So if you ask me again, does watching movies inspire violence, yes.
