Abstract

Violence and bullying are closely connected and exist in mainstream western culture frequently. There are many cultural factors that promote and cultivate such behavior. Included in these factors are mass media influences such as television programming, music videos, sporting and entertainment events, video games and violent content on the World Wide Web. Children view this media extensively and it can be argued that such viewing is part of the causal matrix of the violence in western society.
