Will Violence Ever End?

Violence hurt us all!

Who has not been affected by violence? We see it constantly in it's news reports. We fear it on the streets and at work, and children face it from bullies from school. Even at home, where people usually feel secure behind locked doors, millions-especially women-feel unsafe. In fact, depending on the country, up to 70 percent of women report that they have been assaulted.

In many countries, people fear violent political or social uprising or even torrorism. These fears are reflected in the increase level of electronic surveillance evident in some lands, especially those that have been a target.*

Understandably, the video-surveillance industry is blooming-depite the global economic downturn. Who pays for all of this? We do, in form of taxes and other fees. And such cost may well increase as security measures became more invasive, pervasive, and expensive.*

The disturbing truth is we all have a problem with this. With are beliefs and backgrounds. Does the media have a play in this? Are we influence by this with the games we play or the stuff we watch? How can we protect ourselves? What do YOU think?
