-Male depression and suicide rates are up yet society doesn't care (Media never even speaks of male mental health issues.) -We always see all the time that trash like Chris Brown who beats his woman is rewarded by society with even more women , fame and cash. -Lack of stable families. No real role model for young men anymore. -Young boys in general receive far less affection than girls. -American society doesn't motivate us to do good. -Bullying. -Excessive greed. -Misandry in America (Divorce courts sucking my dry of cash, media shows no interest in men's mental health, abuse against men is ignored.) At this point society is asking some men to snap and kill somebody. -Lack of direction for young people. -Corrupt politicians. -Nobody cares about prostate cancer........yet breast cancer study has made millions. If anything this is a red flag for society viewing men as expendable.
Some how I don't think guns and video games donate to why society is screwed up. Society we live in are creating groups of young men with no hope, no motivation and no direction in life. Why be the good guy when that jerk gets all the women and society respects the greedy corrupt man?
Well, playing devil's advocate for a bit, I don't think having other problems that contribute to violence should sway ourselves from seeing how video games might be a reflection of our society. That being said, yes, I think it's very lazy and stupid for ppl and lawmakers to try and look for that ONE thing that may be the root cause for violence, when our problems are complex, and for that we need complex solutions. And that should NOT include banning media.
