School Shootings and Porn "culture"

In the media they are talking about gun control and movies and videogames. Absolutely rightfully they attack Hollywood. I mean Im not saying theres no place at all for brutality or violence in movies to show something "in reality" or as an expression, but in the last decade it got even worse, it seems like they are trying to force the brutality upon the viewer absolutely UNNECESSARILY.

But I wanted to know what you think about the whole porn culture amongst mostly young men and this generation. Right when I realised how detrimental masturbation especially overmasurbation and even worse to porn, was, and how crude the effects are on the nervous system and on the psyche, I was thinking: OMG, theres an ARMY of hardcore internet porn users, to whom its absolutely "standard" and its becoming worse, and the kids becoming younger. This clearly has a massive effect on their psyhe, and since masturabtion and porn messes with the sexual instinct, which is one of the BASIC instincts, it perverts them on a basic level. so Id say, that porn and the masturbation culture is one of the MAIN reasons these kids end up messed up like this. the brutality in videogames, and the psychotropic drugs only add to this, but the porn is giving them the basic animalic depressed and demonic selfish framework where the other things mentioned only add up as a deadly soup. Im sure that psychopath watched porn on a regular basis for several years, I could imagine some of the more extreme and perverted disgusting kind of.
I think, that the porn-masturbation culture (NOBODY TALKS ABOUT THIS STILL IN THE MEDIA) is the MAIN FRAMEWORK for all these things to happen in such a grand scale.

Apparently the kid had anti

Apparently the kid had anti-social personality disorder, which means he was a sociopath, so i'm sure that played a big role in his actions. However, it would not surprise me if porn indirectly played a role in many violent acts commited by youths because of all of the negative side effects.

yeah, and nothing is so wide

yeah, and nothing is so wide spread as that, really, id say 90 percent or more of young men are into it, it really is, even this artile hints at it, with young girls outperforming young males. I tell you its the porn in every fucking room in the western world where theres a PC with internet

that's a pretty crazy list.

that's a pretty crazy list. It's kind of funny in a sad way how only boys are affected and no one seems to be able to pin point one of the obvious differences in lifestyles between the average girl and boy. It's like saying if 90% of boys did drugs and girls didn't do drugs, and the question was "why do boys do worse in school?" While i managed to go to a pretty good college and luckily found this community while I was here and could go ahead and make some positive academic changes, I wish I had found this site when I was entering high school (although I have no idea whether it existed or not). I'm sure that my grades would have been amazing, my SAT scores would be higher, and I probably would have been better at sports and had a better social life. Still, i'm thankful I found this community when I did.

Let Me Count the Ways . . .

the ways that we are screwed up as a society, that is.

When I got out of high school almost every red-blooded young man was working to get a car and that car was usually lavished with attention, custom wheels, hop-up parts, etc. Now cars are not great investments but fixing up a car tended to focus the efforts of the lad in question. I know that it did for me. When I was 17 or 18 the evening of payday might well be spent installing some go-fast gizmo onto my car, or a friend's, followed by a test drive,and a stop at the drive-in. There would be 2-5 guys in the car. Most of us had girlfriends but we also had male-bonding by means of Holley carburetors and Hurst shifters. We had a nicely sized morsel of responsibility because we needed our car for the sake of our jobs. It was good practice for rent, mortgages and family responsibilities.

These days, it would seem, the only serious choice many young people have to make is between a Samsung Galaxy and an iPhone. The hurdle is set pretty low, and in many cases their parents are providing the money. Failure to find and keep a job is a given.

In this depressed economy finding competent employees is a major challenge. Millions of people are out of work but hiring someone that is willing to earn their keep, that's a challenge. Remembering six employees under my supervision over the last decade only two were reliable. Several had to be begged and cajoled just to get them in every day. I tended to hang onto them because I knew that my applicant pool was full of people just like them, men that wanted a paycheck but no responsibility.

I fear that our threat will be virtual zombies; people that wander aimlessly and have no purpose, no goals, no concept of a future. Junk food, iPorn and video games all seem to make a contribution towards this situation. A trip to the mall is all it takes to see it in action. Pudgy teens walk in small groups, grazing on junk foods and looking like an unmade bed.

When I was coming of age during the hippie era at least people kept their weight down. Dress and grooming may have reflected social rebellion but self-respect still existed. The kids I see in the stores these days seem not to care about much of anything. I saw a young man at the market the other day that looked awful, 100% over his ideal weight, poorly groomed and dressed in shabby clothes. I doubt that there's any companionship in his life but what I find troubling is the fact that he appeared not to care. He didn't appear to care about giving a good impression. I can't but speculate that his life will go nowhere from this point onward unless he changes his attitude. The scary thing, at least to me, is that there's little to motivate him to change; he can live at mom's place, zone out on video games, self-medicate with iPorn and have pizza and Coke delivered to the front door. I fear that describes the life of far too many young men these days.

And yet

we see guys here turn all that around regularly. Very inspiring. I think they need a cause, and self-improvement can become that cause...which in turn leads to great things for many.
