Maybe they are simply implementing the rule of the land as it currently stands and as it has stood for a while now. Invasion and slaughter isn't wrong, it is just a good business decision.

If you're a young, smart guy with a lot of energy but you are essentially starving for the attention and love you're not getting from your family and school, and most of your friends are faceless texts on the Internet, I suppose you could buckle down and work hard at school and after many, many years of time and money spent somebody might eventually pat you on the head and tell you "good job." Yay.

Or you could buy some guns or explosives and kill a bunch of NPCs (non-player characters) in a public place. Very quickly and efficiently people will finally be paying attention to you. Sort of like trolling on the Internet, but a bit more direct. And if you get killed, then whatever. Either way, the problem is solved.

It's "crazy" too. If these dudes would put HALF as much time into learning to play three chords and sing while looking people directly in the eye than they do in writing their fruity little "manifestos," they would never be "lacking for attention."

That's just common knowledge.

Uncontrollable anger that turns to hate then to murder.

Time have changed for the worse and its only going to get worse.



I;m with you on this. We have raised a few generations who through isolation have not learned to process their anger into something constructive Use to be you let off steam with your mates talking about the situation, now through isolation they have locked themselves into the cyber echo chamer of the collective who have not learned to process their feelings. IMHO

Let's face it, these so called mass shooters are committing suicide and they want the world to take note and suffer for the perceived wrongs committed against them. Look at me, you did this to me and now you must pay.

The media and the Internet giving them exactly what they want are playing right into their hands with the willing help of politicians spewing more hate that feeds into their delusion.

Of course they are mentally ill. That goes without saying. What matters is the cause and no doubt the venom coming from politicians is one cause. As to the media, they likely have orgasms when these shootings happen. Politicians and the media rake in the money right after one of these events.

Oh, anybody can learn the guitar. I'm no slouch myself. But as somebody with essentially high-functioning autism, I wish it was that easy to look people in the eye.

Kills get the clicks, that's for sure. I suppose ATS could ban all discussions of mass killings. But this is essentially a news site, and it's news. So... ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I think you're right for the most part, creativity and productivity instills a sense of accomplishment, purpose and self-worth, giving life value and values worth protecting and nurturing.

But there are exceptions to every rule:

The Dayton Shooter Was The Lead Singer Of A "Pornogrind" Metal Band

"Another dime a dozen Ohio grind dude who caped progressive politics while treating women like #."


The man who killed nine and injured 27 in a mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, was the lead singer of a "pornogrind" metal band, a genre defined by its explicit subject matter and themes of gore and violence, specifically sexual violence and necrophilia, BuzzFeed News has learned.

The gunman, identified as 24-year-old Connor Betts, was a member of Menstrual Munchies, a three-person band that performed regularly in the Midwest death metal scene, recently appearing as one of the bands at the Summer Massacre 2 concert in Chicago on June 29.

I guess gangsta rap's got nothing on these porno grind dudes in terms of violence and misogyny.

Think about all the chemicals in the water, that we splice into our vegetables, pump into our meat, or the drugs we give to our kids so they are more well behaved.

With all of that is it really so hard to think we are becoming more unbalanced.



Ahh yes nostalgia... I too wish to return to the "Good Ol Days"...


So whats wrong with not wanting Round up in my vegetables, or hormones injected into my meat, or to let my kid be a kid and not medicate him every minute of every day?

This. Just this. No need to look further.

Fluoridation of water, hormones in the water, antibiotics in the water, plus all of the drugs/hormones in foods, and most importantly, the drugging of children in school because they act like children.

Someone published a list of all of the young shooters - and basically all of them were either on anti-psychotics (drugs for ADD/ADHD/whatever), or recently stopped taking them.

Human brains are computers.... plain and simple.

Sometimes there is a fault that develops in the operating system or one of the major programs running.

Why are more people mentally ill now then in the pass?


Simple answer is, we can diagnose a lot of mental illness now. Also, you hear a lot about it now because of the internet. Mental illness has always been here

Course I am not saying that there are no other factors in the world today, because there is.
