I dont mean to laugh but with the level of violence in all forms of media. Shit that you see on rotten and ogrish just dont phase me like they used to. We have been so overexposed to violence in mainstream media that its hard to draw the line between reality and fantasy. You know where empathy gets you? Depressed.. if you took a emotional stake in every piece of violence in the news in the real world. You wouldnt be able to raise your head when you think of the atrocities that mankind is capable of. Apathy in this case is a good thing it allows people to function day to day without the constant fear that some psychopath is lurking in the shadows. Or that war is a constant, ever present threat to the illusions that we have created.
