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 do not agree. They think that they are not relevant.
I think that violence on television and crime have direct correlation. First of all, if a person watches a lot of movies with violence scenes he starts thinking about it a lot. It is 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 does not effect 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 a person and the quantity of watching valence scenes. If a not psychologically stable person gets overdosed with such watching, he has more chances to commit a crime.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there is an old and good saying, “Control your thoughts because one day they will turn into actions.” I believe that it is a true saying because my experience says the same. After watching too much violence I become more aggressive, which might in its turn cause some crime. Personally, I am sure that it is better to restrict yourself from such watching.
