Insatiable Need



why do we have such a need to be entertained by violence and suffering? Is it a primal hunger that we keep finding new ways to quench? Think about it for a sec. Almost every single thing we view on television, read in a paper, or hear on a radio has something to do with violence, torture, or suffering. Does it help us release OUR violent thoughts through watching others, or does it encourage us to act upon them? Is there some benifit for us to watch people die, get beaten, or tortured, or is it just a form of cheap entertainment used and abused by movie makers, television script writers, and song writers to make an easy dollar?
