Something went really badly in the past, but what was it, and how do we fix it?

Children are being taught violence against others by video games, movies and other media.

They become insensitive to blasting and blowing each other up.

This goes for adults also. We have glorified the man with the weapon who blasts others.

When I was a kid we played Cowboys and Indians and shot each other.

That makes one used to doing that.

Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
