Reader Input: We condition youth to kill

-A +A

Why do we have a violent society? Because we have a violent foreign policy.
We have an empire to maintain and expand. In order to have a large “volunteer” military we advertise to 10-year-olds in magazines and movie theaters — glorifying the military.
Then we use violent video games, movies and TV to condition the young to kill. We glorify violence. We kill men, women and children by remote control around the world.
We reap what we sow. That’s the inconvenient truth.
