While I agree that there is a high rate of violence in modern media, where is the evidence that violent media causes an increase in violent crime? If we agree that in the last twenty years or so there has been an uptick in violent media (video games, movies, TV, etc) then we should also see a rise in violent crimes. However, this is not the case. Violent crime has been on decline since the late 80s http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crime_in_the_United_States
