MH17

Parental guidance is advised

Humans are obsessed with violence. It seems to be ingrained in our subconscious nature – in our very DNA. How often have you heard a car’s hooter screech and you whip your head around expecting (or hoping) to see a crash? More than I care to admit, I can tell you that.

Sharing gruesome images is not activism. It's reprehensible.

Almost 2000 people have been killed in Gaza. Some of those killed have been children in a UN school or playing on a beach. Any indiscriminate killing of civilians is horrific. Do we really need to see images of child corpses to realise this?

The “reality of war” or desensitisation of the public?

 Mainstream media have tended to tread carefully where pictures of war are concerned. There was almost a science to it- the ability to portray the terrible and horrific impact of war on families and society without showing actual dead bodies.
