Some politicians and almost all of the mass media think we’re all stupid, and the pollsters often prove the case. Mass murder is a serious problem that rips at the very sense of reason and humanity. There are a few truly wonderful people out there and a few truly horrible ones as well.
In some cultures the premise is to fix the problem, a kind of social contract of mutual survival. The idea goes far in economics and close up governing. Problems get looked at coolly and calmly with the motivation to solve the matter and get on with life.
Some other cultures instantly set out to fix the blame, a knee jerk reaction that’s emotionally satisfying and highly stimulating. A problem is up rated to a crisis and the motives can be hidden in emotions for promoting special interests and power.
So let’s beg the proper question. Do we seek to end mass murder or seek to control guns? Really, just what is it that the politicians and the mass media want to do? Factually, it doesn’t look like an effort to reduce mass murder and that is a devaluation to the lives lost, an insult to the survivors and loved ones and a warning of manipulation for the rest of us.
It may be too much to hope for, but we’re way down the path to more gun control and nothing is being said or done about reducing mass murder events to fix the actual problem. America has gone blame mad, and many more deaths and horrific events are going to come, anyway.
A cool calm look at America would see a nation gone off the rails. The leadership, a brave term, isn’t leading at all, its making sure this crises is not going to waste, taking advantage of the horror to promote their agenda. It’s a sickening display of: raw cynicism – “an attitude or state of mind characterized by a general distrust of others’ apparent motives or ambitions, or a general lack of faith or hope in the human race or in individuals with desires, hopes, opinions, or personal tastes that the [leadership and mass media] perceives as unrealistic or inappropriate.”
Your humble writer suggests we now have TWO PROBLEMS. We have too many mass murderers running loose and a culture that can’t focus on working on the problem.
Gun control is a “wild goose chase” or child’s “snipe hunt” to be vernacular about it. Factually, its misdirection, a lie, its an attempt to fool us, again.
The basic facts are quite uncomfortable. Mental health care in America is a disaster. We’ll pour hundreds of billions of dollars each year worth of our energy, work and treasure into physical health recovery that is off times due to poor choices. And we leave millions of mentally challenged, who cannot make mentally normal choices at all, bereft of our aid and comfort.
It isn’t any wonder there are mass murderers out there that will destroy a few of us before they destroy themselves.
If you think along these lines and agree, please pass this post along. Its time the political class and mass media discover we’re not all lost in the woods listening for them to lead us out into the gun controlled mass murder zone. We have better things to do than waste our energy, resources and time on spilling ink, pushng electrons and filling the skies with electromagnetic radiation on missing the target.
