Yes I agree, but I can also see how the system, as it is, perpetuates and hypes those natural tendencies for conflict.
Once again it comes back to the use of the media to maintain an atmosphere of aggression, real or perceived within society. We are kept almost
constantly in a fight or flight mental state by the bombardment of supposed dangers from everyone but yourself (and they really don't even stop
We live in an artificial state of being, a perversion of our nature. The aggression in society is not necessary in this day and age for our survival,
so naturally we should not need to be aggressive. Why do we need to be aggressive when all we have to do is go to the grocery store? We should not
be in a survival mental state, we should be loving and living the life we have been given. We are wasting our potential and energy on illusionary
'The state' benefits from this, to justify the mass amount of our energy going to nothing but insurance against a perceived threat they have to keep
creating new and bigger threats. There has to be an 'enemy' for them to protect us from. But then the real twist is the resources they justify by
the perceived threats are not even used to reduce that perceived threat, they are used to exploit and control you and me.
Buying into the gun culture is just perpetuating the control they have over us. Fear and violence are their weapons of control. Scared rabbits who
need protecting, and will except almost any restrictions of freedom to feel protected. And from WHAT? There is more chance you'll die from
breathing than die from the hands of another person.
The media has destroyed our perspective. There is no reality anymore.
BTW I have not said ANYTHING about taking your precious gun away, re-read my last post. If the attitude of society was not so perverted you wouldn't
even think about guns, there ARE other interesting things to do with your life than get all pissed over a piece of cast metal that shoots a
projectile. I stopped being impressed by that before I left high school. Go learn to play an instrument or something? Or is that too hard?
Happiness is a warm gun....
