That's bullshit.
Children are blind to their own cruelty because they are children.
They're meant to be egoistical, it is their way to survive.
Empathy is a trait they develop trough social relations.

Children were selfish and cruel before the TV was even invented.

I'm blindlessly jumping on the band wagon that is this comment section.

Stupid Asshole, "blindlessly" isn't a word.

children are mindlessly violent because that's just in their nature. Like The Lord Of The Flies

Describing an act of doing something that is without blind?
I... I can't even...

Actually, the part of the brain that's responsible for connecting the effect of something to your actions aren't fully grown until you're 25 ish.. Your brain simply can't attach the right feelings (I.E. shame) to your action (like, say, punching somebody), until your brain is more developed. Until then, what you're feeling is remorse at being caught doing it.

A lot of times, you still feel guilt from the action itself. It's just that as you said, the frontal lobe isn't completely developed so teens tend to act on inhibition. Their brains don't realize it's bad until after the fact.

A couple things

1. Blindlessly?
2. In the shows in which there's violence, there is usually also gore. There have been violent shows on for decades without problems like this arising like they are now.

Here's how I see it:
Parents have become much less disciplinary over the years (this is why you see foreigners often doing better in schools than Americans themselves). The reason why this topic is arising at this moment in time in America, and primarily in America, is also because of our system of education. We teach things that will be useless for many kids, but don't teach valuable skills to help kids survive high school, college, and life (literally survive - many kids kill themselves).

1. Disciplinary issues - Within the past few generations, parents have been "losing control" of their kids, making the kids feel like they're not under the control of their parents. The parents, once the kids are teenagers, usually begin to see the children seriously acting out by doing things that are seriously out of line, thus the parents soon attempt to become more controlling, but by then, it is too late. The kid is too far gone. Parents go through giving these kids everything, but they don't stop to think of the consequences. I hate to say it, but hitting your kid and laying down the law is necessary to prove you are above them in the food-chain of family. (I'm not talking violent abuse - I'm talking asserting dominance by spanking, slipper, etc.).

2. Education - Public schools are failing. Many of them, the ones in good counties, are actually doing pretty well because they're well funded, once again, by their county. However, the majority of public schools really aren't like this, as some of you probably know. Some are rundown and dirty, and the kids (through no fault of their own) have been indirectly led to a bad lifestyle.

Because of the word limit, I'll stop here, but this is pretty much what I think the main problems are. Would love to hear other opinions.

Bad Education and discipline are big problems in society today. Leads to the problems that have been recently arising.

User avatar #50 - nucularwar (11/28/2013) [-]
or maybe it's because they lack basic cognitive skills
User avatar #43 - kaycie (11/28/2013) [-]
I thought the problem was that there is more gore?
#40 - mrmamric (11/28/2013) [-]

So are children aware of their violence are aren't they?

User avatar #31 - FightClub (11/28/2013) [-]
it would probably increase if the gore was inserted

it motivates me more
User avatar #21 - jonboehner (11/28/2013) [-]
But violence (murder) is down 50% since 1990... how can you explain that OP
#24 to #21 - anonymous (11/28/2013) [-]
Gun ownership and conceal carry rates have risen tremendously.
User avatar #26 to #24 - jonboehner (11/28/2013) [-]
thats because gun owners are afraid of their guns being taken away by the government
#27 to #26 - anonymous (11/28/2013) [-]
Well of course. They've been trying since the 20's,
#25 - anonymous (11/28/2013) [-]
That, and black people taught them to be that way.
