The purpose of this work is to analyze whether and how the attitude of the population to-wards violence expressed in wars, terrorist acts, homicides, kidnappings, etc. varies over time. The investigation was carried out in three steps in the period from 1983 to 2019 through the measurement of attitudes evaluated with the Osgood semantic differential technique. The results of all three research highlighted a negative attitude of our samples towards violent acts, but over the years the scores tended to diminish, indicating a progressive decline in the refusal of violence and demonstrating a certain habituation to the violence itself, as if little by little people got used to it.
Keywords: violence, aggressiveness, semantic differential, addiction, video games, television.
