Comment on the following statement:
| Violence on TV and crime in society are clearly related. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that violence on TV and crime are related whereas others don’t agree.
I think that violence on television and crime are connected indeed. First of all, if a person watches a lot of movies with violence scenes he starts thinking about it a lot. It’s a scientific fact that mind conceptions sooner or later turn into actions. Second, there is a saying, “similar attracts similar” so if one’s mind is merged with crime images, such a person tends to commit a crime in real life.
At the same time there are people who say watching valance scenes on TV doesn’t effect people’s real life. These are two separate processes without mutual influence.
In my opinion these people have a point. In many cases people separate what they watch and what they do. Nevertheless, it actually depends on the quantity of watching valence. If a person gets overdosed with such watching he will defiantly get have more chances to get involved in violence.
In conclusion I'd like to say that if we weigh all the facts that support that violence on TV creates violence in society against the ones that say, “they are separate processes”, we'll see that the facts that support the statement outweigh those against.
