Abstract

America is a less violent place than it used to be (say, five or ten or twentyfive or fifty or a hundred or two hundred years ago). But Americans believe that violence is escalating out of control, that it is threatening the moral fabric of our society, and that the proliferation of violence in the mass media, especially the graphic violence in today’s movies, is a cause, and not only a symptom, of this threat.
