Yeah, I'm not so sure that violent movies and video games don't have an effect. I don't think they're as harmless as Mr. Goldberg says. I think, perhaps, the bill has yet to be paid on these things. I was in a briefing from one of the Army's top psychologists. He said the Army was using first-person shooter video games so soldiers would get immune to thinking about the consequences of what they were doing. So that at the moment that the soldier needed to act, he would do so w/o hesitating. Asked what the effect on the rest of society was, the Dr was clear: We're going to pay for this.
