Whenever another shooting (or some other act of violence) happens on a university campus, I am, sadly, not surprised. Motivations are quickly sought among the media and law enforcement, amidst nervous rumors of “terrorism” or “mental illness,” depending on the scenario.
I invariably shiver from the dogged insufficiency of these explanations because I know instinctively that a much deeper force is at work. Universities have, since liberalism overthrew them decades ago, have become hotbeds of degeneracy, cynicism, filth, a rabid rejection of all that America has represented since its glorious inception over two hundred years ago. This pernicious energy seems to have opened up a portfolio of evil which attracts, in turn, even more evil in various manifestations.
Even a cursory glance at the footage of any of the “incidents” invariably reveals campuses that look and feel grim, cold, cheerless, like government compounds for the indoctrination of our youth (which is exactly what they are). Even the existence of perfectly manicured lawns, and obviously planted trees which line the campus roads, seems only to further the impression that this is an artificially constructed world, and, over time, counteracts the best aspects of human nature.
The acts of violence perpetrated by the shooters, then, as random as they might initially seem, reflect the acts of violence perpetrated by the universities themselves: violence against the individual, violence against country, violence against God, and violence against the students themselves: possibly the most devious and contemptible psycho-spiritual violence that’s ever been committed, carefully concealed under the banner of “education.”
