Television the New Colosseum?

Why is there a proliferation of violence in entertainment and sports, both in the present day and throughout history?


What purpose does such mass media exposure to violence serve with regard to the societal and mental state of the populous?


Who benefits from the agenda of displaying violence in the media and how do they benefit  from people all over the world being exposed every day to this violence?


The fact that the entertainment industry is rife with violence is not likely to be widely contested.  It is there in front of your face every day, on the news, in cartoons, in movies and even at the football matches.  All this violence brought directly to your living rooms, why?


In order to fully understand why we are being exposed to so much violence from a young age we must first answer two questions.  How does violence effect the human mind and psyche?  Who benefits as a result of this effect?


Violence as entertainment has been used for millennia, the specific aim of which is control of the masses.  Use of violence and the fear it generates, in combination with the Hegelian dialectic (which David Icke so aptly calls problem, reaction, solution,) is one of the key techniques for the mass manipulation of human behavior.  The Roman Emperors were well aware of these techniques which is why they built circuses for the games and chariot races in every major city of the empire.  It is their direct bloodline descendants today who still control much of the world who use TV and the entire entertainment industry as a means to solidify their power base in much the same way as their forefathers did. 


TV far outstrips its predecessor the colosseum in effectiveness.  This is because it can deliver horror and violence directly into the homes of a captivated populous.  Sports such as football generates riots just as the chariot races did during the Roman Empire.  The riots between Blue and Green supporters culminated in the Nika Revolt during which half of Constantinople was burnt down and tens of thousands of people lost their lives.  Now the supporters are for Arsenal or Ajax instead of the Blues and the Greens, but the outcome still has the potential to be the same.  Ironically just after I began writing this essay a football riot occurred in Northern Ireland.  As you can see, the agenda to create problems and generate artificial factions is running according to plan.
