Columbine Shooting
Columbine Shooting April 20th, at Columbine Senior High School in Littleton, Jefferson County, Colorado, two teenage gunmen entered the school and began shooting. The enormous amount of media coverage that these events typically get serves to perpetuate the same kind of crime elsewhere.

South Africa
When a country such as South Africa, or for that matter most African nations, changes governing power, a sufficiently stable social basis is vital to the survival and consolidation of the new political system and transition to democracy. The history of the de-colonization of Africa forewarned South Africa allowing it to prepare for the ensuing changes it faced in the early nineties. South Africa made adequate reforms in its military in order to make the transition to democracy smooth, peaceful, ...

Violence 2
ViolenceViolence is part of our society, that is all around us. You cannot turn on the television without seeing some kind of violence. You pick up a newspaper, and it jumps out at you. Is there really more violence than there used to be? Who is to blame for this increase? I feel that the media is not responsible for the increase in crimes, but rather they are now just doing a more thorough job of reporting it. This increase in reporting thoroughness is due to the technological advances t...

America: Freedom And Violence

Media outlets such as television, movies, and music have h...

Censorship should not be imposed on citizens by the government or other agencies; adults have a right to view or listen to what they choose. Additionally, if children's media is censored, parents are the ones to monitor and regulate it. Parents should monitor children's viewing of television and also what they hear on the radio, CD's, and tapes. Censorship includes the examination and blocking of ...
