Friar Louie mentioned Prof. Michael Nagler: Here are a few web sites that tell more of him and lead to some of his work.
http://www.wie.org/bios/michael-nagler.asp

"Every time we have pursued violence to further our interests in other countries - supporting Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, and the Taliban - it has rebounded to harm us - what the CIA calls "blowback." If we truly want to be secure, we must understand why we're hated and take steps to correct it.

"There are three areas. In policy, we have to look particularly at our behavior in Israel-Palestine, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, where we have supported the autocracy since 1943. In lifestyle, we cannot go on consuming global resources, particularly oil, at an unsustainable rate. Bike to work! A third area is in our culture. Since commercial television became available in 1946, we have created a culture of violence. We cannot possibly expect to escape violence unless we change that culture. Intuitively, there is a close connection between the cultivation of violent imagery - in movies, in television, on the "news" - and the experience of more and more violence in the real world - a connection which scientific studies have confirmed repeatedly. And that culture of violence has led to a politics of cruelty. "
