It gained through violent behavior is only temporary and it lasts until the
time of revenge comes around.
Violence was glorified hundreds of years ago. Back then it was a form of a
pure entertainment. We know how among ancient Romans, gladiators (usually slaves
or captives trained for the purpose),fought with swords or other weapons at
public "shows". The more harm the gladiators inflicted the bigger hero he was,
and the more respect he gained. All the crimes they committed were condoned,
accepted and glorified.
Today it seems like instead of gladiators we have boxers. Is boxing just a
sport, or another way of violent behavior, that is not only accepted by society
but also in many ways glorified? Do we glorify boxing (most of the time bloody
shows) because it is entertaining, or maybe because it is a multi-milion dollar
business? The scenery of boxing is broken bones, black and blue faces,
blood...The more severe the fight the more exited and happy the audience seems
to be. Violence simply stimulates people. Big glory comes when one passes out!

afraid of you. That is again, a wrong message.
Violence is glorified the most throught media, violent movies, TV shows and

"Natural Born Killers", "The Proffesinal", "Pulp Fiction"," Terminator 2",
etc.When these kinds of movies come out, there are lines for tickets. In some
countries people have to stay in lines to buy food. Violence can not be the way
to survive in this society! People are not only glorifing violence by watching
violent movies, but they are also accepting it asking producers for more of
them. Wrong messages are send not only through movie theatre screens, but also
through music. We as society accept ...
