The War Mentality in social construction

We must consider that there is a desire to create a conflict
mentality in our society. The recent success of Gladiatorial games like Ultimate Fighter and the hundreds of video games devoted to violence and destruction of the opponent has created a warrior caste within the western industrial society.
These individuals seek only to resolve conflict with violence.Peace making is seen as anti social. Athletes are also given the opportunity to express themselves in a violent nature.We have to also consider Foot Ball (American Version) and Basketball as possible expressions of violence in team play.

I know its hard to understand or believe but there are athletic competitions that have no physical contact or the contact is non violent.We must consider how our society is being socialized into violence!.
