    Lots of other countries have the same video games, music and movies that the US does, yet they are somehow less violent than us. These forms of media are not the issue. The violent American attitude is the issue.

    Such things are not rules which apply universally or not at all.

    I remember being in Tokyo in 1994 and seeing liquor, beer and wine machines all over the place. All you had to do was put in the money and you got what you wanted. I asked a Japanese friend how they could do such a thing and not have rampant teen abuse leading to worse problems. He looked at me with a weird expression on his face like I was asking where babies came from and explained that you had to be of adult age to use the machine. I asked him what prevented the teens from ignoring that and he looked even more puzzled and simply stated that they know they cannot do such things.

    Every culture is different. What flies in one may not in a different one.

    The fact that people can play violent video games in other cultures an have no ill effect upon society means nothing to its effects in other cultures.

    Not exactly. You post seemed more general and may have been targeted at other types of "normal" people, mine was targeted more towards people with mental problems ranging from DD to MI. There of course would be some crossover but not that much me thinks.

    Lets put it this way...for those that might be predisposed to commit acts of violence...exposure to violent media doesn't exactly help.

    No, not at all. There are other countries that play the same games and watch the same shows that don't have nearly as high of a homicide rate as us. Someone who's mentally abnormal, like Goshin said, can become fixated on anything.
