    • Hi Asher, I agree with you that violent video games are just an easy excuse that people use to avoid talking about the more abundant causes for violence in today’s youth. An idea you had that I thought would help solve this conundrum was that parents should put more effort into controlling what video games and media their children are exposed to. I think this would work because it would remove the scapegoat of video games and let people talk about what other causes there are for people committing crimes.

    • Dear Asher :
      I am intrigued by your post “No links between violent video games and shootings,” because not a lot of people talk about how video games have nothing to do with violent crimes. Many people like to blame the things that make less sense like video games and don’t want to address the more realistic problems like problems at home.One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: Often people don’t want to address the harsh reality of the situation that it is most likely linked to their upbringing and mental health, which is a very tricky subject and one that we don’t have much information on and is always different from person to person. I think this is right because they want to find an easyway to blame something then actually look in to it and find the facts. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you are very good at getting your point across. Also i understood clearly of what your trying to say and i agree very much with what you are saying.

An article from…Read More

    asher commented on the post, Why we need zoos

    Hey Katie,
    I think that you make a good point but in my opinion Zoos do a lot more bad than good, and that they would be fine if proper steps are made to make the living for the animals better and how they get the animals better. I do agree they offer education and when the animals were ones that were injured and are now in living safer it is…Read More

  • Hey Alex,
    I think you bring a good point in your post that we are considered an adult and can fight but not not drink for another three years. I think it is important to keep in mind and that a brain isn’t developed by even 21 but at 25, an article from NY times makes a good agreement…Read More
