On violence

Violent acts like the one at Virginia Tech have various causes, but there's no escaping that living in a society which promotes mass murder as a way to "solve our problems" (i.e., to have our way with the rest of the world) is a factor. How thoroughly does the atmosphere of violence permeate this society? Forget violent video games. Here's a headline from today's Business section of the San Jose Mercury News:
Intel unveils 20 weapons in AMD war
The continuation headline on the second page of the article offers a variation:
Intel: New artillery rolled out for company's war with AMD.
Delightful. Just delightful.
