Hit List, Mass Destruction, and Violence

Myrolvorets is a Ukraine website that publishes a running list of people
considered to be enemies of Ukraine whose actions are crimes against
National Security, peace, human security, and international law.  The
identity of staff is secret. The site has no official status but is used. 
It's slogan is  "for the public" .  It includes the personal data, email
addresses, and other information of journalist, terrorists, and other
people from all walks of life.  There are thousands on this hit list in 
2023, maybe even millions and that is very scary to think about. 

Another problem for the world is the gathering of weapons of mass
destruction, be it nuclear, radiological, chemical, biological, or other
types that are being created and housed in countries all over the 
world just so they are ready.  I think it is appalling  that there is 
no consideration to the slaughter of people nature, animals, and the 
suffering and the misery these would have on the world. Oh what if!

Also, viewing and experiencing violence on television, or in movies,
or in games has a desensitizing effect on people with a potential
to develop aggression in viewers. The disturbing content of shooting
guns, bombing, fighting, killing that some find enjoyable in time can
cause nightmares, depression, bullying, fear, stress, anxiety and lack
of empathy. Killing seems normal, bang, bang your dead.

There is a lot to be afraid of in 2023 . . .
