Well; I’m not a pacifist, but I try to be ethical, just like everybody else.
Most fighting scenes in movies just bore me. It’s sort of an obligatory number, like the protagonist bursting into song is for people who don’t musicals: time for a bathroom brake.
So it doesn’t even work as an steam valve.
Psychological violence, (and unhappiness caused by dealing between people) whoo boy, I 'm interested. I watch it and then I endlessly digest what happened and what should have prevented the hurt.
Real life violence, like the Ruanda example meantioned by Mona Lisa Simpson? I don’t want to see it, because it makes me sick, and I dont want to read too many details. I just want to know as much about it as enables me to do something about it. If I can’t do something about it, I’d rather not know about it. Circle of influence and all that. http://sivers.org/circles
Journalists who want me to watch awful things just so they can say they’ve “made me aware of it”: go away and pollute someone elses mind.
