Humanitarian Aid discussed on The Takeaway

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

People seeing the videos well i i think with this type of footage you're you're less likely to see the types of imitation um and priming just due to the fact that there would be such negative consequences that you would see and feel associated with it so talk a little bit more about the research that you've done and that we do have you've shown people videos of terrorists and some really really awful things but studied how they react on how much they say exactly women affilated a news footage experiment where we told people about a massacre though was conducted by isis we showed them some of it but edited out the worst of the violence and then finally we showed the unedited clip and we found that when people see the unedited clip they feel higher levels of anger and disgust and those responses motivate desires for change desires for change to get up from in front of the tv and and maybe do something about it basically motivations for humanitarian aid to to aid victims but also of military aid to try to potentially stop the terrorism nothing that's debatable whether or not those things are good but the issue i think is you know how much do we see and how much does it make us care because the cost with not seeing this flooded freight is their harder to see because their their future costs right there people who have who will eventually become the victims of gun crime of if we don't do something to potentially sapa all right will we've been hearing from lots and lots of our takeaway listeners on this issue matt listen to.
