One of the most logical descriptions for being human is that of a loving creature with the tenacity to better himself/herself in every way. If you had a glimpse of the world six centuries ago, you would think of the species that existed then as anything but human. Unless you are watching it out of a television scene, it’s not every day you witness thousands die in battle, or enjoy people kill each other for sport. The decline of violence in the world is apparent.

Video games, whether they are played on your PC or on a console system, come in all shapes and sizes – and with a variety of parental ratings. From the colourful world of Hello Kitty Online to the remarkably violent Grand Theft Auto series, and every game in between, the range of violence in video games seems endless. But what impact do violent video games really have?
Raging April is over and May is currently on the lookout. Speculations might come further until the rest of the year. Meets, talks, internet ban, pellets and militancy all are flashing in the news.

Being gay isn’t easy, yet it’s easier than it’s ever been, at least in western countries that is.

The most recent case of which is just taking place in Chechnya.

Orange the World is a campaign initiated by the UN to invest in order to stop violence against women. But do you know how this lady Emma Morano did so? Instead of investing in others, she started to invest in herself. The very dear life that we often take for granted should never be left unattended.

In every aspect of life, there tends to be a desire to have others see things from our own perspective. If this would be the case, then, in theory, we would all share the same views and opinions about basic values, uniting for common goals and building stronger economies and a more united human world instead of waging war. But, this is not the case and as such, our differences in wants and needs, political inclinations of self-serving leaders, and mutual disrespect has always been the bane of all wars.
