How to End Violence in the World?
How to Stop Violence
In our society today, violence has become a problem. It is affecting people's lives and also hurting them. There is violence everywhere, from in movies to in your own neighborhood. We should cut down violence and killing in movies, offer child and adult classes, and put more policemen on the streets. These are just small ideas to make our world a better place.
Violence is sometimes caused because kids see it on T.V. People see killings, robberies, etc., on T.V., so they think its all right to do a crime. In a magazine it said that by the age of 7, a child has already seen 1,000 murders. We need to reduce this by a lot.

Second, parents should talk to their kids about violence; they should set an example for them. If our generation knows what's right, and does something good to help the situation, then our children will have a better world to live in.
Finally, we should take this situation with violence seriously. I feel, and this is my opinion, that no one is taking this problem seriously. I mean, some people actually make violence into a joke. Doesn't anyone realize that today's children are seeing this and are getting the idea that violence is good? This is wrong!

It leads to quest for parallel administration eg.naxalism. Intolerance and lack of respect towards feelings of other person ,group,religion ,nation and race leads to its expression through violent forms such as terrorism,genocide etc. The memories of holocaust still persist.Other forms of violence such as gender based violence and violence against children are increasing due to their vulnerability. Violence also has medical reasons like psychological disorders, alcoholism, drug abuse etc.
Violence can be decreased through efforts at international,national,community and personal level.
At international level the organisations like U.N and treaties to contain transnational crimes, global intiatives to tackle terrorism are helpful. But any action taken shold be legitimate otherwise it in turn leads to birth of other terrorist organisations eg.Taliban and ISIS.
At national level there should be efforts towards decreasing inequalities , communal harmony, inclusive development, and...
