The Truth Behind Violence …

Today in society violence surrounds our everyday life’s it seems to have grown on us from assaults to rapes . In reality violence leads to nothing pleasant , The outcome of violence is a cruel , viscous and unruly. Warren Ellis claims that violence stories today helps inform us about the reality in society . In other words it is agreeable that violence shown through fictional ways helps people in society gain the knowledge of the truth behind the real world . Violence is most Likely committed by a person who has no background knowledge of today violence and the precautions of it . In “Blood in your eye:Why we need violence” , Ellis makes a  restates a statement by Sammy Yatim “I don’t understand why he did it.” Or “I don’t understand why this happened.” Whenever an issue of violence occurs this is one of the many statements that are said , it demonstrates that people don’t understand the danger of what they do , if they are informed this may slow down violent acts . Most people learn from what they see , Ellis argues that “Every week they seems to bring a new attempt to ban something or other because it’s uncomfortably or scary or perhaps even indefensibly disgusting” . Ellis talks about how society chooses to banned violence everyday even though as people in society should be exposed to it so we know what could happen if we commit these violent acts and what we shouldn’t do .Later on Ellis then states ” We learn about things by looking at them and then talking about them, together.”  By Ellis arguing this statement he stresses the fact that if we talk about these violent acts together instead of people avoiding it , the violent acts will decrease everywhere.  As Much as people will disagree with Ellis opinions , many might  find it highly agreeable , violence is a form of act that can be controlled if went about the right way .
