RE: serious discussion

Concerning the idea that watching violence MAY promote same (admittedly not stated directly, but IMO implied), I don't think there is a direct relationship to those of, shall we say, "reasonable" intellect. What worries me more now, and I don't know if it's my age, 68, or my perception of values, culture, etc., or both together. I am concerned at the obvious degree of fun with which I see kids & adults playing the VERY realistic "war" video games. It is incredible how lifelike these games portray people & situations of violence & death. Personally, I can't be in the same room when they are played. Now, IMHO, participants seem unaffected by the death of their own character or team mates, and almost giddy at the death of opponents. I fear that this, to some degree, has made some of us less sensitive to real violence & I'm not smart enough to know whether this may have an effect, and if so, what it even may be, on those who participate in such pastimes. All I know, from personal experience, is the real horror & shock of participating in real life war. It is incomprehensibly ugly & in no way mirrors a video game. You can't push a button & get more ammo. You can't get enough points to bring you or your friend back to life, etc. So let me type this to bring it back to an audio discussion, Tubed and/or solid state amplifiers. Sorry if I hi-jacked the discussion or the direction it was headed. And I completely understand if it's deleted or if any of you disagree & aren't happy with me for posting it. Sometimes I feel like this is therapeutic & perhaps this is improper in this venue. But there, I did it anyway. Now do as I shall, which is to go & listen to some pleasant music.* please pardon the length of this post & my ignorance of knowing how to start a new paragraph. I hate that.
Everyone thinks I'm strange except my friends deep inside the earth
