I agree with you - violence against men is prevalent. Violence, in general, is prevalent.
The faster society becomes, the harder it is for us to cope. How many commercials do you see that say you should feel this way, or you deserve that? We are fighting normal occurences in life - like depression, grieving, and aging; loss and gain - to achieve some utopian sense of order. We are striving for perfection with whiplash fervor but with slipshod ways. That creates an aggressive frustration that's hard for society to handle.
Also the commercialism, which has infested every aspect of American living, has fostered a sense of entitlement within the genetic strain. Instead of working hard to achieve material gain, many have the feeling they should have it as right -- divesting the achievement of privilege -- as part of the "American" way. It is this ever-present feeling of "keeping up with the Joneses" that drives some to crime.
It's a tiresome epidemic which - if people stopped watching TV, got up off their duffs, went outside and enjoyed life - could be curbed.
