I am sure that sexual po*nography in the Internet is something that everyone knows exists but now, there is something new and equally, if not, more horrifying - violence po*nography. This is the latest degradation of the human culture, which shows horrifying and gruesome executions, murders, suicides, genocides, etc.

This is from readers digest thats iam quoting

' The internet is full of such fare. Another website boasts that it "collects images and information....to present the viewer with a truly unpleasant experience." True enough, since among the site's recent photographs was one of a man being hit by a car, and another of the grotesque remains of a person killed by a shotgun blast.' Reader's Digest.

What has happened to the human sense of respecting the dead or dying and their family members? And what has happened to the good sense of protecting children from violence?

Internet connections and PCs are so easily available,  so it is definitely equally easy for minors to gain access to such horryfying sites. Children are so impressionable that they may think that such violence is a normal part of our lives, therefore, desensitising them towards it. This will ultimately create violent young adults in the future.This could only make young children feel that violence is a most enjoyable thing and that violence is, well, cool.
I think that such websites should be boycotted. Parents MUST stop their children from viewing such sites to protect their children from such evil. Children's minds are very easily shaped by the environment. Do we want this evil to seep into their little minds which will turn them into violent adults in future?

Please give your suggestions on how this can be curbed

I am often amazed as how do people stomach gruesome stomach , but they not just stomach it , they indulge in it , enjoy it and our fascinated by it . I am grossed out by films that depict violence , music that speaks of violence( goth music sort) ,Video games that shoot down cops and show bizzarely gruesome pictures of these deaths .

How the human race came to enjoy and get fascinated with these things is beyond me .

Now what can we do about it ?????? Thats a tough one ,
parents banning their kids from watching this stuff will not help as these things will go underground and people will make illegal copies of these things and sell them from places like Palika Bazaar ( as it happened with grand theft auto video game ....last year).

As of now i am unable to think of a suggestion let me get back . Smile

As to how it can be prevented, on a small scale, identify these sites, trace the owners and try them for illiciting violence. On a larger scale iam in loss of words Confused , donot know.

the govt. must intervene...the sites must be blocked and the ppl prosecuted. they have to tackle it like they do for 'child po*nography'.

we liked reel violence but next gen. could, God forbid, like real one.

as we move away from God's path, we turn into sadistic (ppl to enjoy seeing others in sorrow) as the history is evident..sadly!! Cry

All the ancient civilisations, Mayan, Roman, you name it, indulged in extreme, unimaginable and gruesome violence for sport and pleasure (remember the colosseum?).

Today, we have sport like boxing and fencing in which the violence has been toned down to make it acceptable to the general masses as it is no longer "fashionable" to watch gladiator sport.

Man is an extremely violent animal. No other species kills for sport or pleasure. The violence you see on TV is just the result of someone trying to commercially exploit our basic instinct.

what u r saying is one aspect and not the whole picture.Iam talking about how they glorify on the net.Our kids can learn bad things on the Internet -- things that are too early for them to be exposed to and that are detrimental to normal development.Aggression could be taught and encouraged on-line. One of the ways children are exposed to aggression on-line is viewing hard-core po*nography.

Can you imagine your realatives or siblings or friends or family ending up in these websites? Wouldn't you feel infuriated by the thought that they were not given proper respect due even after their deaths? One family posted a message on a website claiming that a photograph of their nephew, who commited suicide by getting into the path of a train was publisiced on the website. The website posted this cruel response,"We ask that, in the future, this family conduct their suicide in a less public manner."

An Example of Violence being Encouraged through the Internet: Columbine Shooting.
On April 20, 1999, two students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, walked teacher before committing suicide. Questions "why?" followed, and, sadly enough, it was very obvious that the clues were everywhere, but there was no one to pay attention to the two boys. As it is now explained, the important influences were their obsessions with weapons, war, and death, that were bolstered by violent videos they made, violent essays and poems they wrote in their creative science class, endless rounds of bloody computer games, and their vicious rantings on the Internet, in their Web site. In everyday life Eric looked just like an average boy; on the Internet his veneer of normalcy fell away.


In one of the middle schools of Maryland, middle school children found a recipe on how to make pipe bombs on-line, and brought one to their school. Everyone had to be evacuated and, fortunately, nobody was hurt.

Scary, isn't it? Parents, do everything possible to make sure your child doesn't fall victim to one of these sites, because it might turn out to be a tragedy for a lot of people

Your point is well noted. Mine probably wasn't Man is an extremely violent animal

point taken

Man is different than an animal. An animal's existence is purely instinctual. His reality is subservient to his instinctual desires. An animal's existence is totally contained within the realm of the physical. An animal does not contemplate how long it is going to live.Man however, is a complex creature. Man's nature is perennially the source of conflict. The instinctual desires of man are constantly in conflict with the intellectual.However, man is doomed to extinction when violence prevailed. Man is no longer functioning in the world of reality. He is no longer using his mind in the pursuit of his physical pleasures. He is involved in violent, self-destructive behavior.

His self-destructive behavior manifests the abandonment of the intellectual, even as a means for the pursuit of physical pleasures. Violence epitomizes the state of the domination of the instincts.

 

So in short where are we all going??
