Recent violence in public places, including most national incidents seem to have strange links to both derangement of the nominal perpetrator and other power based entities that seem conveniently forgotten or hidden in the public discussion of why these tragedies are happening and what to do about the problem. It is time for a more honest discussion of what is really going on.
Regardless of who actually pulled the trigger that released the power that did the killing we all live in a culture of violence that results from our apparent belief that it is our right to have the cheapest energy possible regardless where it comes from or what the eventual effects are from its use. Along the way to obtaining this resource we have all sanctioned (approved) the use of whatever force is needed to reliably deliver this energy to us.
This cultural acceptance of global theft and the technological developments that enabled this dominance are likely to be the root cause of all of these violent atrocities.
There is a developing leadership model that shows that things happen more reliably in a non-coercive environment if those who advocate a solution actually use it themselves. A recent discussion of methods of limiting health care costs in corporate settings described how blue collar workers were convinced to follow a more healthy diet and excercise routine if the management of the company did so at the same time and in the same facility.
So the mandate is clear become the change you wish to have happen.
It is time that the US government gave up its dependence on automatic weapons of all types if it wants society at large to be less violent. In essence to become the change that must happen. If we are to be forbidden the ownership of these lethal devices, the trade and production of them should be forbidden for all as well. When this happens it will be quite clear where the devices used came from and what must be done to eliminate such occurances.
Until then we will never know whether minor mental malfunction is just a cover for more sinister motives or something that just happened?
The links below are off the mark but inclluded to show the range of non-thought that prevades our society today!
