The belief that good triumphs over evil resonates deeply in our psyche through religious, cultural, and political discourses. It is also a common theme in the entertainment media where the struggle between good and evil is frequently resolved through violence. The potential negative impact of media violence on children has long been a public concern. It is even more troubling when U.S. military violence, both in the news and in the entertainment, is often glorified as heroic and patriotic. Full of poignant footage and moving responses from children, the video examines how the good and evil rhetoric, in both the entertainment and the news media, has helped children dehumanize enemies, justify their killing and see the suffering of innocent civilians as necessary sacrifice. 39 min, 2003
