I want you to understand one thing from this paper, white birth rates have to change. The white population is decreasing, to maintain its population it is necessary to reach a fertility rate that in the West must be about 2.06 children per woman.

Twitter user Nikki Mccan Ramìrez (NikkiMcR) shared an excerpt from a Fox News newsletter, the host (and his host) of which, speaking of the tragedy, said:
It seems these events have been on the rise since video games have become so realistic and so violent.
According to the words of what is said in the news, video games that are now too realistic and violent would have the effect of desensitizing children, making them less aware of the gravity of their actions.
It would seem a very difficult period for the video game industry and for gamers. It was not enough to put restrictions in China to combat addiction to video games (link to the article) and to compare video games to drugs by an Italian senator (link to the article), all types of violence continue to be associated. to video games and to those who use them.
