Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Infantry are shown gore films to dull their future reaction to a mate's head getting shot off next to them. Soldiers need to continue to obey orders. But if film gore is effective in this military context - which I presume - does it follow that there is suppression of compassion/sympathy in non-military viewing of gore?

In any case, how compassionate is shooting a bullet at someone?
