Generation: PSYCHOPATHY

Now I'm no psychologist er whatever but I was skimming through some crappy science magazine... ya know that skips over the research articles and prints pretty info-graphics and crap instead..

Well I came across an article on "The mind of a psychopath" In the article it described tests used to differentiate between a normal mind and a psychopath mind...

So they show people a series of images... some normal images and some "disturbing" images... the normal persons brain has an extreme reaction to the disturbing images and the "psychopath" brain doesn't really react...

Now this got me thinking like WTF then anyone who has poked around the internet and seen shock/death/decapitation/murder videos or images.... or any kid playing hours of Call of Duty etc watching heads explode and people die in fires is technically a PSYCHOPATH because it doesn't phase them...

Check this quote...


So let me translate... "THEY DO IT FOR THE LULZ"

So I guess we're all psychopaths then as mass media keeps pushing the shocking and disturbing stuff further and further as that's the only trick they know i.e. Torture Porn

I mean isn't this kinda excessive? A description from some new sniper game....
Watch as the celebrated "bullet cam" from Sniper Elite returns
bloodier and more gruesome than ever - skilful shots are rewarded with
a slow-motion flight of the bullet, then targets are graphically
rendered in X-Ray as the bullet enters and destroys your victim. Organs
shred, bones splinter, teeth shatter, as the true impact of the
sniper's bullet is brought to life
So welcome to the new world where psychopathy is the norm... if your making a film/game or whatever and are trying to push the realism/gore envelope ask yourself why? Because its EASY to make someone feel FEAR or REVULSION? AND if you want to play that game you CAN'T BEAT REAL DEATH VIDEOS which can be seen on the internet so why are you trying? Because ultimately to be the best at that game you'd have to really kill people and film it.

I think there's other games to play that are better for the human race as a whole.
