"Gun control" as a social issue is a distraction, irrelevant to the problems underlying "gun violence". Let's remember that firearms are tools,
What we should be talking about is why these horrific acts are being committed. Let's set the possibility of a massive state psyop (a somewhat
plausible explanation) aside for the moment. The real problem here is that we live in a sick culture. We feed our people chemicals and
genetically-modified garbage called "food", put people on psychiatric drugs at the drop of a hat, live vicariously through media idols, and have
been taught that we don't have to take responsibility for our own actions. If you take a physically ill person (which most of us are, considering
what we consume), distort their psychological processes both chemically and through social conditioning, and then put a gun in his hand--bad things
are going to happen.
But the gun really has nothing to do with it, and we all know that. We live in an artificial culture that is contradictory to humanity's natural
relationship with the world around (and within—part of the illusion we live under is the idea that humanity is somehow separate from nature) us.
We’re seeing the consequences this culture is having on human behavior but are unwilling to address the real problems behind them. It is much easier
for people to point their fingers at the tools we use and say, “Aye! There’s the problem!”, never once considering that the so-called
“problem” may simply be one manifestation of a larger, systemic social dysfunction.
I argue that it is our drugged-out, dumbed-down, narcissistic (bordering on psychotic) culture that is to blame. However, this requires that people
point their fingers at themselves for allowing such a twisted civilization to continue. The vast majority is unwilling, if not psychologically
incapable, of doing this. In the meantime, the state will continue to use these events as justification to tighten their grip on the population.
They will take your guns away. It will happen soon, and it won’t be through the imposition of martial law or anything so nefarious—the
people will demand it because they are unwilling to make the necessary changes within themselves. Blame the guns, blame the guns! Blame
anything but what we’ve allowed our civilization to become. Anything but that.
