In Don Tapscott’s book Grown Up Digital, he states that many people accuse the internet and technology of making this generation more violent. He cites the Columbine school shootings as just one example of young teens being influenced by video games to carry out horrible acts of violence.
I’m sorry, I didn’t realize violence and shootings were things created by this generation. Last time I checked, people have been running out into the streets and massacring innocents since long before anybody had even heard of Pong. The idea that technology is making us more aggressive and violent than past generations is absolutely without ground. Guns and gangs are not products of Sony’s Playstation.
