Violent Video Games Recruit American Youth
Lugo, William
Reclaiming Children and Youth: The Journal of Strength-based Interventions, v15 n1 p11-14 Spr 2006
An expert on the sociology of video games highlights the power of this medium to popularize violence among children. But few are aware that some of the most technologically potent products are violent war games now being produced at taxpayer expense. These are provided free as a recruiting tool by the United States military. The author contends that government production and circulation of highly sophisticated violent video games is unethical and contradicts violence prevention efforts among children and youth.
