Many people believe that television violence has a negative effect on society because it promotes violence. Do you agree or disagree? Use specific reasons and examples to support your response.




Televisions had a major impact on our society since the time they had been developed. Electronic media had been somehow able to affect our thinking, our mentality and our perspective of viewing things. Awareness has been created among many groups of the society and people are becoming more open to new ideas and technology. However, at the same time, it is also true that viloent and extreme tv shows had not been that much of help to that positive impact. Children who are not mature yet watch cartoons and movies based on violence and terror and indulges in themselves a love for extremism.

In my opinion, these kind of violent shows do not actually affect our society in that much negative way. Nowadays, everyone is sensible enough to know the difference between the right and the wrong and the widespread awareness had led people to know that these shows are not reality based, but are simply properly controlled and monitered stunts. Adults can impose parental restrictions of their televsion sets if they are so concerned about the negative impact that might happen. Children should be educated about the reality of all tv violence and should be taught to not perform any such acts in real life.

However, it is also true that some people may get moved by the actions shown on these shows and try doing such stunts in real life. They may also perform such violent acts out of curiosity. Some people may even develop a sense of frustration after watching all the violent news and shows and this may lead to widespread terror among the locals.

Despite this, all these negative impacts can be monitered and controlled through proper regulations and the use of restrictions on such shows. Thus, in my opinion, television violence does not have a negative impact on our society because people are now much more open-minded and aware of background of such acts.
