Because It’s A New Trend
I remember as a kid, games like Mortal Kombat, and music from people like Marilyn Manson was influencing kids to want to kill everyone. At least, thats what I was told by some people that had no idea what they were talking about. Mortal Kombat started off as a game with a gimmick, which in turn came out to be really funny. Mainly because of the fatalities, because some of them can have you laughing pretty hard form how over the top it is. Marilyn Manson’s music is meant to shock. That’s kind of it, and much of it is also pretty well written.
I’ve also seen old news reports about rap music encouraging people to join gangs, and shoot cops. When in reality they were talking about they world they were living in. And if you still don’t understand what was being talked about, watch the movie Straight Outta Compton, that should be a nice visual aid. People fear art, or like to promote the fear of it, because it seems to me when people are creative, they are more difficult to control. As seen in the movie Jesus Camp, if you can take the imagination and wonder out of a kid, they are damaged for life.
