More People In U.S. Politics Are Getting It!

Recently the Democrats of the House have begun pushing for Federal money to be used to research the correlation, if any, between popular culture and violence in our country. Fox News being Fox News is pushing against it and calling out Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic minority leader, via Chris Wallace. Because, you know, he’s credible. “Go to your Hollywood friends and tell them to knock it off!”

Her response: "I understand what you are saying," Pelosi said. "I'm a mother, I'm a grandmother. But, they -- not Hollywood, but the evidence -- says that, in Japan, for example, they have the most violent games and the lowest death -- mortality -- from guns. I don't know what the explanation is for that except they may have good gun laws."

Someone is using logic and reasoning in Washington D.C. Stop everything! The world is going sane!

But seriously, it’s good to see that there are a few people on our side and taking a logical step in understanding that video games are not the source of violence. Neither is Hollywood or music. In countries and cultures with more violent and sexually graphic content, they experience some of the lowest crimes rates. There is something in their culture or their laws that curbs violence. That is what we should examine and attempt to replicate.
