Arabian Business: why we're going behind a paywall

I really think that feeding our children on years of violent video games has caused this knife culture epidemic that is killing so many young people all around the world. I beleive that over the last 15 years or so children have become desensitized by all these sick violent video games (like grand theft auto) and now we are witnessing the results around the world. Many Kids don't seem to have a real childhood anymore and they're so used to communicating in a virtual world (internet) they don't know how to communicate or solve problems without resorting to violence. A detached generation - Very sad, what a waste.
