David Vann's new book about the psychopath who committed mass murder on Northern Illinois University's "gun-free" campus in 2008 just hit the shelves last Thursday, and today, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) has published an interview with Mr. Vann, on their "Bullet Counter Points" blog.
Libertarianism favors the individual or small group above society and is therefore antithetical to most of what holds our society together. It’s very frightening. Most of our mass murderers have been libertarians. It’s the perfect political belief for them and fits well with Nietzche’s concept of the “superman,” someone above moral code. I don’t think Americans realize how frightening and dangerous libertarianism is. I would count it as the number one warning sign for a potential shooter, and it’s particularly dangerous when combined with former military service.
says a lot I believe. The author apparently believes morality is a creation of government and anyone not wishing to participate must be a barbaric heathen. As though should the moral compass of government be dropped or even reduced we would all run through the streets raping, murdering and pillaging because somehow interfering with, causing harm to, or otherwise involving ourselves with the life and liberty of another sentient being no longer seems wrong.Perhaps he believes government is god.
