Discuss one of the topics below:
1. Respond to the idea of the American virtual citizen-soldier as enablers of perpetual war or the notion that distancing ourselves from consequences of violence via division of labour can yield disastrous, genocidal consequences.
2. Maybe you’d like to dive deeper into the topic of first-person shooters and gun violence, hopefully including some recent psychological findings on the topic (while recognizing, of course, that ‘video games are turning kids into psychotic school shooters’ is a tired, widely-discredited argument).
3. The recent invasion of Ukraine has also shaped how we experience warfare in many ways – any examples of this?
