The recent spree of school shootings and bombings has suprised not only the United States, but the world. Suddenly aggression and violence have entered the spotlight. People are asking themselves "Why does violence happen?" and "What can we do to stop it?"
The government has already started offering their own solutions. A new breed of television commercials encouraging parents to talk to their children about violence. Federal grants to improve school security. An investigation led by the Federal Trade Commision and the Department of Justice on how video game, motion picture, and recording industries market their products to children. The senate safe schools task force has created a hotline for peers and teachers to report suspects so that proper action can be taken.
While the government may seem to have the answers they need, the public does not. They are still in the dark on why violence occurs, and a large part of the solution will be the education of the general population. This page addresses that issue, listing the many reasons violence occurs. From psychology to evolution, we cover a broad range of topics.
