In 1996 Telecommunications Act Congress ACKNOWLEDGES TV VIOLENCE INCREASES REAL LIFE VIOLENCE IN CHILDREN

Hollywood and Congress are both partially to blame for the increased violence we are seeing.
AND THE ACTIONS CURRENTLY SEEN SPEAK LOUDER THAN THE WORDS THAT MAY BE USED TO DENY THIS.

People just don’t want to hear it.
 
Hollywood CREATES IT with increasing depravity.
Congress ALLOWS IT while knowing it’s IMPACT on people.
ALL of these Violent Actions are the FRUIT of Their upbringing.
REPETITIVELY VIEWED VIOLENCE RESULTS IN A VIOLENT CHILD/ADULT
Read The Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996
It SHOWS Congress AWARE of TV Violence IMPACTING CHILDREN.
And Yet TV and Media have gotten much worse.
Old TV shows didn’t have mass killings and in those times neither did we.
EVERYTHING YOU SEE FORMS an image, a feeling and a memory in your Brain.
Even if you don’t understand the impact fully.
HOLLYWOOD GLAMORIZES SHOOTINGS.
Over and Over and Over again.

Zombie movies that require headshots to kill the zombies.
John Wick 2 had 126 killings.
The first time you kill anything it is an eye opening experience.
Numerous feeling flood thru you.
By the time you do it 10 times not so much.
By the time you do it 100 times it has become second nature.
And that same logic applies to seeing it.
As a kid when you first see something it is unique.
But the same thing seen over and over again it is boring.
And that is exactly what is happening with these shootings.
And in many cases people copy what they see other people do.
COPYCATS
Monkey see Monkey do.
CONGRESS SHOWS THEIR AWARENESS of the VIOLENCE INCREASE PREDICTION in the FEDERAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS ACT OF 1996

SUBTITLE B–VIOLENCE
SEC. 551. PARENTAL CHOICE IN TELEVISION PROGRAMMING.
(a) FINDINGS- The Congress makes the following findings:
(1) Television influences children’s perception of the values
and behavior that are common and acceptable in society.

(2) Television station operators, cable television system
operators, and video programmers should follow practices in
connection with video programming that take into consideration
that television broadcast and cable programming has established
a uniquely pervasive presence in the lives of American children.

(3) The average American child is exposed to 25 hours of
television each week and some children are exposed to as much
as 11 hours of television a day.

(4) Studies have shown that children exposed to violent video
programming at a young age have a higher tendency for violent
and aggressive behavior later in life than children not so
exposed, and that children exposed to violent video programming
are prone to assume that acts of violence are acceptable
behavior.

(5) Children in the United States are, on average, exposed to
an estimated 8,000 murders and 100,000 acts of violence on
television by the time the child completes elementary school.

{Can you imagine the amounts currently?}
(6) Studies indicate that children are affected by the
pervasiveness and casual treatment of sexual material on
television, eroding the ability of parents to develop
responsible attitudes and behavior in their children.

(7) Parents express grave concern over violent and sexual
video programming and strongly support technology that would
give them greater control to block video programming in the
home that they consider harmful to their children.
(8) There is a compelling governmental interest in empowering
parents to limit the negative influences of video programming
that is harmful to children.

If everyone who reads our story, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $10, you can support the IWB – and it only takes a minute. Thank you. 208 views
