Mass shootings in America
Figures From link..
My question here is of a psychological nature.....
Considering the multiple wars that have consumed the planet since 1900.....("mass mass murders," so to speak....)
The above statistics.....
And the proclivity of nature to even things out over aeons.....
You don't suppose that humanity is succumbing to some lemming-like urge that is triggered by factors outside of conscious control do you?
The multiplicity of simple radio waves, the huge diet shift, and countless other rapidly changing factors, in our external as well as internal worlds
overload the human emotional capacity to deal with....the result are cold murderous personalities that kill......
The stimulus may be more on the surface....but the urge is a deep seated need to cancel the input overload for that particular human...by a psychotic episode of a deadly nature......
The over all result species wide is an eventual mass cancellation of the whole race........
or is it just me?
Somehow, I see a death spiral forming very distinctly...
And I haven't even mentioned the death centered media craze in all genres....whats up with that?
I notice the trend to even more creative and spectacular death and mayhem......
Not only are the druma of war roaring in our ears constantly.....but our very entertainment gives no respite either.....
Ewen Cameron (MK Ultra) performed a thing called psychic driving on patients using overload techniques he reduced and replaced their personalities to a certain extent....
Is a similar effect being performed by our TV sets?
How subtle are the effects?
And how EFFECTIVE?
The only seemingly positive people out there do not partake of the media or pay attention to much outside their own small lives.....
Though even they may not be entirely immune to the deep basic malencholly that flows below our conscious comprehension....
as the entire race prepares its denumond.....exit stage left....

I read the OP it has nothing to do with suicide apart from your initial opener about lemmings and whales, neither of which have any evidence that they perform suicides. Lemmings suicide is a long standing myth and whales generally beach when they get caught in waters too shallow.
As for your "death wish" part of your title, mass shooting is nothing to do with people having death wish or do you honestly believe those who get killed in a mass shooting want to die ?
Like I said your title reflects nothing to what is actually in your op, it's just click bait and I'm pissed because I expect discussion on suicide not mass shooting

It's not suicide, suicide is the act of taking ones life. What you're talking about is murder
Also death is the second most natural thing a living creature can experience, the first being life and for some bizarre reason we actively try to avoid both as much as possible.
Perhaps it's the avoidance of life that is causing what you're talking about

Perhaps it's the avoidance of life that is causing what you're talking about....precisely....or perhaps the "controller" is programming the human race for self destruct....
The good news is that modern culture, based on the premise there is no inherent purpose or positive design in human life, has been exposed as a long-term Illuminati psy-op designed to demoralize us. It will fail.
The Satanic Origin of Modern Cult-ure
...historians, educators and journalists collaborate by upholding a false reality and distracting us from the truth. Our world, our perception of the human experience, are shaped by an occult secret society. Our culture is an elaborate psy-op.
The Satanic Cult That Rules the World
POPULAR CULTURE = BRAINWASHING. "Popular culture" (music, TV, movies, books, fashion etc.) is NOT spontaneous but corporate controlled and manufactured. "Today's mass culture operates like the opium trade: The supply determines the demand."
Bankers Are Behind The Counter Culture
Modern Western culture is based on denying objective truth and erecting a false reality in its place. The New World Order is dedicated to replacing Truth with a solipsism created by the same people who create money from nothing and charge interest.
Modern society is based on a solipsism created by Illuminati (Cabalist) Jewish bankers and their Masonic minions. The word "solipsism" means a self-created reality that has little or no connection with Truth. Instead of being dedicated to Truth, humanity has been hijacked by the bankers. The "New World Order" is a solipsism that stymies and enslaves mankind while increasing the bankers' power and wealth. We are being drawn into a solipsism that inverts good and evil; truth and lies. We are being inducted into a satanic cult.
WESTERN CULTURE BASED ON DENYING REALITY
Thus kulture is contrived. How do we know what we know? We are taught by the mass media and the education system. But what if they were subverted by a satanic secret society, i.e. the Illuminati? The mass media and education system promote this suspension of reality. Truth is suppressed. Lies are promulgated. Negative or self-destructive behavior is portrayed in a positive light.
