While the constant exposure to extreme violence in the entertainment media may 'desensitize' people to the horrors of mass murder I do not buy the idea that it is the primary motivation for such senseless acts of violence. I believe the main reason we see these kind of violent acts is the attempts to eliminate God from our society and the subsequent decline in moral guidelines that tell us such acts are wrong. I believe that by eliminating the internalized moral code that tends to come with a belief in God (however perceived) we are creating a generation of children with unchecked drives and desires who can be misdirected toward violence as a way to satisfy these desires.
