PHILOSOPHER CHUCK

I can think of nothing sadder, nor more representative of the sentiment in our society which would teach our young to fight rather than love, than this perverse viewpoint of a man (Chuck Norris) who has grown to heroic proportions in the eyes of children across the country.

Haven't enough studies demonstrated that on-screen violence does in fact breed real violence among impressionable youths? Must we continue to perpetuate the cult of victory through strength at the expense of understanding through love?
