It's not that I don't think the evil is more prominent today because I absolutely do believe it is.
I just don't believe that television makes people do evil things.
For example, today we have Headline News, Fox News, CNN, the Internet, and so on.
I'm old enough to remember life in the 1960's. We had craziness then too. I grew up by
Chicago. There was the Martin Luther King assassination, the Kennedy assassination,
the serial killer Richard Speck that killed 8 student nurses in Chicago (one lived because
she hid under the bed), school shootings (plenty of them), university riots and murders,
and it goes on and on.....I ask you....
What kind of television programs did we have in the 1960's that would cause school
shooting, assassinations, serial killers, etc? My gosh we had Captain Kangaroo,
Gilligan Island, Rocky and Bullwinkle, The Flintstones, Bonanza, The Fugitive, The
Bob Hope Show, Red Skeleton Comedy Hour.......and
In the 60's people on tv was still sleeping in twin beds and couldn't say the word
'hell' until the 70's.
I am not saying there are not influences. People are influenced.
What I am saying is, often evil doers are going to do evil and it is not because they
watched a movie or tv.
Many people do not even realize that school shootings took place even in the 1700's.
The first recorded was in the USA 1764.
