Violence and the fascination with violence comes from human nature Remix Presentation By Leighanna
Where does violence come from and what is the fascination with it? Psychology behind violence Dorothy Lewis, M.D. studies murders, especially children murders. She insists that the recipe for violence is:
* brain injury
* psycotic thinking ~ especially paranoia
* child abuse

This relates to human nature because there is a
defect in the brain causing the person to act primally and thus become more prone to violence
Charles Manson Hannibal Lecter Michael Myers Opinion of teens Teens that have lived with knowing violence
have collectively stated that violence comes
* The media
* Substance abuse
* Unemployment
* Weapons
* Poverty
*Peer Pressure
*Broken Homes
*Poor Family Environment/ Bad Neighborhood
* Intolerance/ Ignorance
"Among children my age there is a code of honor. If someone hits you, you must hit
them back. If you do not hit them then you're a punk. A child who is called a punk is
the kid everybody picks on. Some kids are so afraid of being called a punk that they
are willing to kill so they won't be called it" Dupe Akinuli

"I've experienced so much violence in my life...One girl, age eight, stabbed another girl just for a Barbie doll; a
fifteen-year-old young man shot and murdered another man just for a beeper. It looks like violence will never stop" Hanni Torres Mexico's Drug War [Eminem]
When I was just a little baby boy,
my momma used to tell me these crazy things.
She used to tell me my daddy was an evil man,
she used to tell me he hated me.
But then I got a little bit older and I realized,
she was the crazy one.
But there was nothin' I could do or say to try to change her,
cuz that's just the way she was.

They said I can't rap about bein' broke no more.
They aint say I can't rap about coke no more.
(AHHH) Slut, you think I won't choke no whore
‘till the vocal cords don't work in her throat no more?
(AHHH) These motherfuckers are thinkin' I'm playin'
Thinkin' I'm sayin' this shit cuz I'm thinkin' it just to be sayin' it
(AHHH) Put your hands down BITCH, I ain't gon' shoot you.
I'ma pull +YOU+ to this bullet, and put it through you
(AHHH) Shut up slut, you're causin' too much chaos
Just bend over and take it slut, okay Ma?
“Oh, now he's rapin' his own mother, abusing a whore,
snorting coke, and we gave him the Rolling Stone cover?"
You goddamn right BITCH, and now it's too late,
I'm triple platinum and tragedies happened in two states.
I invented violence, you vile venomous volatile bitches
vain Vicodin, vrinnn Vrinnn, VRINNN {*chainsaw revs up*}
Texas Chainsaw, left his brains all
Danglin' from his neck, while his head barely hangs on.
Blood, guts, guns, cuts.
Knives, lives, wives, nuns, sluts.

Chorus: Eminem

Bitch I'ma kill you You don't wanna fuck with me.
Girls neither- you ain't nuttin but a slut to me
Bitch I'ma kill you You ain't got the balls to beef.
We ain't gon' never stop beefin' I don't squash the beef.
You better kill me? I'ma be another rapper dead
for poppin' off at the mouth with shit I shouldn'ta said.
But when they kill me - I'm bringin' the world with me.
Bitches too You ain't nuttin' but a girl to me.

..I said you don't, wanna fuck with Shady, (‘cause why?)
‘Cause Shady, will fuckin' kill you. (ah-haha)
I said you don't, wanna fuck with Shady, (why naht?)
Cuz Shady, will fuckin' kill you

Bitch I'ma kill you Like a murder weapon, I'ma conceal you
in a closet with mildew, sheets, pillows and film you
Fuck with me, I been through hell, shut the hell up
I'm tryin' to develop these pictures of the Devil to sell 'em
I ain't acid rap, but I rap on acid
Got a new blow-up doll and just had a strap-on added.
WHOOPS Is that a subliminal hint? NO
Just criminal intent to sodomize women again
Eminem offend? NO Eminem'll assault.
And if you ever give in to him, you give him an impulse
to do it again, THEN, if he does it again
you'll probably end up jumpin' out of somethin' up in the 10th
(Ahhhhhhhh) Bitch I'ma kill you, I ain't done, this ain't the chorus.
I ain't even drugged you in the woods yet to paint the forest
A bloodstain is orange after you wash it three or four times
in the tub but that's normal ain't it, Norman?
Serial killer hidin' murder material
in a cereal box on top of your stereo
Here we go again, we're out of our medicine,
out of our minds, and we want in yours, let us in.

Chorus (first line starts "Or I'ma kill you")

Eh-heh, know why I say these things?
Cause ladies' screams keep creepin' in Shady's dreams.
And the way things seem, I shouldn't have to pay these shrinks
these eighty G's a week to say the same things TWEECE
TWICE? Whatever, I hate these things
Fuck shots I hope the weed'll outweigh these drinks
Motherfuckers want me to come on their radio shows
just to argue with 'em cuz their ratings stink?
FUCK THAT I'll choke radio announcer to bouncer,
from fat bitch to all seventy-thousand pounds of her.
From principal, to the student body, and counselor,
from in-school, to before school, to out of school.
I don't even believe in breathin', I'm leavin' air in your lungs
just to hear you keep screamin' for me to seep it.
You faggots keep eggin' me on ‘till I have you at knifepoint,
then you beg
me to stop?
SHUT UP Gimme your hands and feet
I said SHUT UP when I'm talkin to you

Chorus (first line starts "Or I'ma kill you"
ninth line starts "Bitch I'ma kill you")

[Eminem] Hahaha, I'm just playin' ladies. You know I love you.Eminem song lyrics from the song:
Kill You

History of violence Violence is just apart of human nature. As in being bullyied around on the playground or how chimpanzees live in a hierarchy based on violence. Looking at the history of humans you see violence as means to accomplish many things... "Oh, what a relief to fight, to fight enemies
who defend themselves, enemies who are awake" Andre Malraux's book Man's Fate Gang Violence The War in the Middle East Violent Media Philosopher's Rousseau and Hobbe's: Both have considers man to be savages and brutish Ted Bundy Jeffrey Dahmer Albert Fish The End Thesis: * Violence comes from human nature ~ the primal need to survive
* The fascination with violence comes from the fact that in today's
world violence is not necessary but since it is still apart of who we are
we are fascinated by what it is
Basic need to survive **some of these things don't
cause violence but they do
set up situations where violence
could happen “Death solves all problems - no man, no problem.” "I do not see why man should not be just as cruel as nature” WORKS CITED
