Essay from the year 2018 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,0, University of Stuttgart, language: English, abstract: This essay will break down through different time periods why America is so bound to violence, beginning with the first settlers coming to America, over the business with the Indians, the fight of independence, the Truman doctrine in connection with school violence today, the gun control issue, and it will take a look into one possible future, based on the movie "The Purge".
"American society is engulfed in a world of violence. [...] We know from routine statistical data collection, studies and media reports, that there are enormous numbers of violent episodes in this county each year." Moreover, "the high levels of serious violence appear to be uniquely 'American'. The United states has [for example] a higher homicide rate than in any other industrialized nation- nearly double that of Spain, which has the second highest rate." Violence is being defined in this Essay according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary as "the use of physical force so as to injure, abuse, damage, or destroy." But regardless of how many people speak up about the topic, want to change something about this issue and demonstrate nothing changed so far. The USA as a country, is born with and lives through violence, both in a sense of having prospered from it and being surrounded by it.
