I have heard and read a lot about television really playing a major role in the violence of today's world. So do you agree to it or do you feel its kinda overrated?

Is television the leading cause of violence in today's society afterall?

i can make an argument form both sides...

1. movies usually show terrorism and lots of violence, which if is seen by a kid at a young age can effect  them, but on the other hand...
 
if ur so againes violence then just turn off the TV and dont watch it.

Can't really say about the soaps and shows in the other parts of the world...but as far as Indian soaps are concerned, they did help in creating more violence...but now, after the K saga had been over, I think the soaps are now way milder\ than before.
dunno much about K saga, but weren't they saas bahu types? or criminal shows?LOL

well , in india, i guess yeah, there are shows other than soaps which are creating more havoc. But in foreign countries, from what i have heard, such soaps also form an integral part of "violent shows"

actually ur rite, its not that easy to leave an addiction.
but im not talking abt someone who has an addiction to TV, im saying that if someone thinks that TV is promoting violence then it would be better for them to not watch it.

well , you mean to say that the person who feels that way shouldn't watch it, but he shouldn't go around the world shouting that other shouldn't watch it also>?
