(Before It's News)
Unlike Obama's belief that more guns laws governing law abiding, God fearing gun owners, will stop mass murders, most Americans know there is no cure to crazy loons seeking fame through killing innocent people. In fact, it's Obama's liberals and the social justice nonsense that has given empowerment to those unwilling to take personal responsibility for their own plight in life.
This punk has the same modus operandi as many others before him. He was a social misfit, had Asperger's syndrome, came from broken home and was suffering the same scourge all too common in America's liberal counter culture, entitlement, also known as, selfish me-ism relevancy.
The prelude to his rampage was not evident to those that knew him. His eccentric view of himself and the world was not enough to expect people who casually saw him, to suspect him capable of this sudden act of devilish mass murder. These slimy souls live with two faces, the outward presentation that appears harmless and the inner demonic face that seeks attention and retribution if their desires are not met.
Is there any curative to these satanic fame seekers? Is there a clue to their sociopathic illness? Does society have the right to strip them of their constitutional rights based only on suspicion that they might commit a crime of this nature? Would refusing to sell them a legal gun thwart their depraved plans of mass murder/suicide? The answer to all these questions is a resounding, no.
There is only one thing society can do to stop these events from happening, stop breeding them.
We are told not to feed wild bears, why? Because it creates three reflexes to this apex predator. One, the bear loses fear of humans, two, it becomes reliant on a free food source and three, it then bites not only the human hand that fed it, but every human hand it comes across. Feeding that bear conditions it to feel entitled to a meal when it approaches any human, and if you don't feed it, then you become the food.
Pampering the bear creates a man-eater. Pampering our kids creates spoiled disaffected pleasure seeking youth that struggles to accept disappointment and is ill prepared to accept responsibility for their own shortcomings. In essence, they blame society if they can't make friends, blame teachers if they can't learn, blame women if they can't get a date, blame the world for their lack of happiness.
Our modern atheistic society has re-invented community, re-invented family, re-invented marriage and most importantly re-invented individualism. Most youth today understand individualism to mean, self- expression and the freedom to be different. Nose rings, tattoos and exotic hair-dos are forms of that age old need for youth to distinguish themselves from a societal crowd and say “look at me, I am different.”
There is nothing wrong with the freedom to be different, and or unique self-expression but, it is only half of the definition of individuality. The problem lies underneath the hair and the tattoos for some of our youth, that are not taught the other half of the definition of individualism, which is self-reliance and personal accountability.
If Mummy and Daddy are paying for your tats, piercings, haircuts and or subsidizing your eclectic self-expression by allowing you to live at home rent free, then guess what, you are flunking the crucial part of individualism; self-reliance.
In fact, personal accountability in your heart, mind and soul is the measure of a true individual with or without any outward appearances that might measure you in a crowd. Not conforming to society's unwritten dress code doesn't mean one should abandon all conformity. You are not an individual unless you conform to a moral set a values exacted by inner accountability, in which you understand that the blame as equally as the praise rests on you alone. That accusatory finger of failure should always start waving at oneself first, and foremost, before anyone or anything else is blamed.
Therefore the message of entitlement is equivalent to feeding the wild bears. Parents need to be teaching their children gratefulness for being alive, not prizes or privileges just because they grow another inch taller and another year older. Parents need to intercede and require their children face accountability and responsive introspection when they do the wrong thing and want to blame everything but their own willful lack of self-control.
Parents need to not only set a strong moral example but to instill a sense of responsibility in their children's lives by requiring chores, volunteerism and expectations of more and more self reliance as a child matures. It is important to teach children that adults don't need money, fame or praise from society, to be a whole, healthy and happy individual.
Helicopter parents create childish adults. Parents that parent out of guilt and never want their children to grow up, don't realize that by clipping their child's adult wings they make them ill prepared to face a challenging world, which not only perpetuates their failure to mature, but also damages their self-esteem.
It isn't tough love, it is rather true love, when parents selflessly raise their children to take moral accountability, (no age too young) to act with respect for self and others, to not blame others for their own inadequacies, giving privileges only when a child demonstrates responsible actions and always encouraging them to fly on their own.
Will this stop all the mass murderers? No, but given the singular similarity of signature presented by these self-absorbed sadists, whom all have the same thing in common; blaming society for their own inability to find happiness, we can reduce their numbers.
The recipe for a peaceful society has not evolved or changed in eons, nor will it ever change no matter what modern technology and ideas are forced into the mix, the ingredients are still faith, family, charity, love and personal accountability. Time to stop feeding the bears and breeding selfish sadists.
