Its pretty much 20 years after 9/11 give or take an hour or two and things have gotten progressively more f’ed up or even just more intense in every possible way. Its beyond desensitisation. Its oversaturation of media in every possible way and more. The weather is more intense. Financial pressures are more intense. There is alot going on.A good example is when we were kids, the adds about kids starving in Africa sandwiched between an add for Maccas and vacuum cleaners then the show comes back on and all’s forgotten, except maybe if your parents try and make you eat your veggies and throw the line “there’s kids starving in Africa and you won’t eat your peas”.
Don’t know the answer. I’m sure it’s been studied by psychologists. Probably desensitisation.
