Considering how hard everyone I came into contact with came down on me when I was psychotic, and relatively mildly so, I find it unfathomable that people in the US are allowed to go on as long as they seem to be able to acting bat-shit crazy before they wind up killing people.

It's highly possible that we are living in an unfeeling, uncaring society where everyone is obsessed with minding their own business, clearly to a tragic fault.

I just can't believe the extent to which these people's parents and teachers turn a blind eye.

It's too much to think about. We'll be living under martial law before long and all because empathy is dead. I wish I didn't see where it's heading but I do and I really hope I'm not still around when we reach the point of no return.

Stick with me; we'll keep empathy alive.

Maybe we should start a campaign in the spirit of international cooperation.

wrenna said...

Do you think that bringing up the word "international" might make it more difficult to root out the really crazy Americans?

Good grief... The New York Times is quoting a friend of Adam Lanza's mom saying that she taught him to shoot BECAUSE he was troubled and she wanted to teach him "respect" through guns. FAIL: get shot in the head four times.

You may be right. You can stay on the campaign but we'll downplay your alien citizenship. If anyone brings it up we'll act evasive and distract the interlocutor with charts and graphs.

They won't listen to facts. We need to frame this as a 'right to life' initiative.

And family values. Don't forget them.

wrenna said...

HOW COULD I HAVE FORGOTTEN THEM? Although the happiest families I know of go on about how naughty they are.

Therein lies the contradiction, doesn't it.

Also, I find your recent use of all caps to be exciting. I feel the 'all caps for emphasis' technique is underutilized. It requires a delicate touch, though. Too many caps and people just turn away in horror.

I will try to keep my caps in check. :)
