American Moral Decay

Ted Nugent expresses some of the thoughts I have had over the past week. 

"We’ve embraced a culture of contempt that attacks the very institutions that make for a healthy and strong society, and then we’re shocked when it spirals out of control. The only thing I’m shocked about is that anybody is shocked."

"As with most things, the cure to this mess begins and ends with the family. Traditional family values have been under siege for decades by our culture of contempt. In the absence of a solid family, the whole thing slowly unravels and rots."

I have no personal connection to the murders, but I have been purposely avoided all the news stories and all the pictures because just the thought of the children makes me tremble with sadness. I've been in a bit of a daze all week, trying to avoid thinking about it. I'm just waiting for time to pass, when for me-it becomes more of a distant memory of something terrible, instead of something terrible that resonates so personally with me as a parent.

There is no greater pain that a human can experience.

But I've also been thinking about how to stop the shootings.

My conclusion is that you can't.


Because there will always be evil humans. And drugged up ones. And antisocial ones who do terrible things. There will always be industries-either psychological, therapy, pharmaceutical or Alinksy-based family wreckers that try to rationalize away all anti-social behaviours and tear to shreds what has worked for humans for thousands of years.

We can't legislate away bad individual choices. We can only try to deter humans from making them and punish (my preference of course, is capital punishment) those who have no regard for the sanctity of human life.

So, my conclusion is based on what I have also seen in Israel. You can't stop terrorism.

You can prevent as much as possible, but the only way to stop the terrorism is to stop the terrorist. 

The only way to stop the mass shootings in America is to stop the individual shooter. 
That might mean that they are locked away, or killed in the very seconds that they start to do something destructive. 

Jim Goad wrote an outstanding essay on Taki Magazine about the extent to which these shooters are drugged up the wazoo.

Nobody seems to be talking about that. I urge you to read his entire piece. It is really a must-read.

Frankly, I would trust a bible-thumping, Christian, G-d believing, "hillbilly", "good old boy", "Redneck", gun-toting, bacon-eating, beer-drinking southerner with my kids, more than I would EVER, and I mean EVER EVER trust them around ANY secular, emasculated, atheist, video-game addicted, young, single, liberal (virgin), "edgy", "goth", vegan men who have their mother's last name, who seem to universally have single mothers, and in the care of psychologists. The ones who are buried in the basement, never have learned how to be social, and are attached to something electronic all the time instead of partaking in real life.

No girls are mass murderers of this sort (except Palestinian women, and that also turns human nature upside down, no other "culture" sends its own children to death voluntarily and to kill as many other people in the process as possible).

Legions of Western women, particularly in America are clearly too busy being groomed to destroy men and families.

And yes-some of those guys end up being encouraged to be day care workers and nurses and I'm wary of them.

(UPDATE: Some of them become teachers, in elementary schools.) 

If that makes you uncomfortable, good.

It should.

Neutralizing evil is the only way to deal with it.

You can try to prevent it as much as you can, but you can't eradicate it. 

In short, America-the people with any brains in America should change the language of the conversation about these murders. 

It's terrorism, and America can take a page from Israel on the best prevention methods. 

No free society can stop terrorism entirely, but a combination of  very strong deterrence, good intelligence, and killing the terrorists is the best option that we have at this junction in human civilization
