why are we so violent?

 It is the question on all minds.what has turned us into a mass shooting,violent culture?well,some say it is television,some say movies,and others say violent games.but,i for one say bull.i am 40 and i grew up watching westerns which depicted shootouts all the time.i watched movies such as Friday the thirteenth,Halloween.some of the most violent and bloody graphic movies.i do not have any violent intentions,i don`t fell like shooting people.i also have played violent games such as resident evil,ghost recon and others.so,no it is not that.
  So what do i think is going on?we have to look no further than the ideology we are putting in our kids heads.here are some examples,i hear people tell kids they are special.and they are until they are 16.then,they are like anyone else.they need to learn to get jobs,pay for their bills,and pay for things they want.after 16 if you think your special,you are delusional.we tell kids they are better than so-so down the street.they are not.no kid is any better than anyone else.and no grown up is better than anyone else.all people have value.no matter what.but the biggest mistake is that their rights are greater then everyone else.you hear kids say it all the time,i have the right to do this ,say that.well,no you do not.if you threaten people,they should report you to the police.and no no teenager or adult has any right to lay their hands on anyone else.even if they say something you do not like.it is called free speech.so you get pissed,get over it,everyone does.the thing we should be teaching is you have certain responsibilities.to yourself and those around you.you are responsible to help your parents.you are responsible to look out for your brothers and sisters.and parents are completely responsible to help and take care of small children.life is not a never ending party.you are responsible to your family.you do not have the right to hurt another person.you do not have the right to anyhting unless you paid for it.the world does not owe you anything.this is what we are not telling our kids.and they think because some tell their kids the world owes them,that they can do anything.just my thoughts.
