Why has England lost its medieval taste for violence? | Aeon Essays
England’s experience seems to have been mirrored by developments in Scandinavia, what is now the Netherlands and Belgium, and northern Germany, suggesting that the decline of homicide in England was part of a northern-European phenomenon whose causes remain in large measure conjectural, but that must be related to broad cultural shifts interacting with processes of state formation.

the 600th anniversary of the affair in 1955, when the University of Oxford granted the city’s mayor an honorary degree, and Oxford made the vice chancellor of the university an honorary freeman of the city. It was perhaps fitting that this act of closure for an episode of medieval mayhem came in the 1950s, now widely regarded as the most stable and non-violent decade in recent British history.

« Les jeux vidéo violents augmentent les conduites agressives »
les jeux vidéo violents ont une incidence sur les affects, les pensées et les conduites ­agressifs, et diminuent les conduites coopératives. Sur la base de résultats aussi clairs, plusieurs instances internationales, dont l’Académie américaine de pédiatrie, reconnaissent ces effets et contestent directement la thèse de la ­catharsis, selon laquelle des moments vidéoludiques soignent la violence et ­« purgent » l’agressivité.

La réalité virtuelle mobilise des processus psychologiques et sociaux qui ont des liens avec la réalité tout court. Plusieurs expé­riences classiques en psychologie ont été ­reproduites en contexte de réalité virtuelle. Par exemple, si vous effectuez dans un univers virtuel une tâche difficile et qu’un avatar vous observe, votre performance se ­dégrade, comme dans le monde réel.

Skepticblog » The Colorado Massacre, Gun Control, and the Law of Large Numbers
A large-numbers analysis allows us to understand on a societal-level scale why such events happen randomly and without any specific cause common to all (drugs, gangs, bullying, depression, psychopathy, psychosis, violent video games, and the like). History and population demographics for rates of mass murder show that Aurora-size events are going to happen again and again and again, and there is no way to predict who is going to do it, where, or when.

When the Second Amendment was written stating that citizens have a right to “keep and bear arms,” rifles took over a minute to load one bullet at a time. The most crazed 18th century American could not possibly commit mass murder because no WMMs existed at the time.
