Gun craziness erupts again in my country. We have so much craziness and there are so many ways to express it but I really don’t think schools and children should have to be victimized with it. “School shooting” has now been conceptualized and has offered instant identity for lost souls who can for a brief moment find meaning in their otherwise meaningless lives, a “meaninglessness” that is the product of our spiritually bereft “christian” culture.
In a sane society our leaders would get together, scratch their heads for a while…and perhaps their asses…and then make a decision about how to minimize the likelihood of the school shootings to continue being institutionalized. Now I favor common sense and we would do like other countries and disallow private ownership of weaponry, certainly the military style weaponry that is used to inflict tragedy on our school children. Now, since absurdity will rule, and the gun industry will prevail once again, let me suggest other absurdities that might be pursued. Let me start with prayer, but let it be a prayer that God will intervene and prevent parents from having sex any more so that children will no longer be born and need to be educated in schools where they face random slaughter. Or, perhaps, legislation should be passed and schools across the country should be razed so that “school shootings” would end. Our nation’s youth could then be home-schooled. Or perhaps the draft could be reinstituted and each classroom in the United States would have an armed soldier whose only responsibility would be to protect the children. Or…back to God…we should beseech God to come to his senses and just reach a gnarly hand down here and wipe humankind off the earth instead of permitting us to continue the folly of allowing our youth to be slaughtered. Yeah, blame it on God…as it has to be someone’s fault! We must never accept responsibility for this tragedy, a tragedy which will continue again as nothing will be done. It is just too painful to accept responsibility for our actions, individually and collectively. Blame somebody! Blame God, or the devil, or the Republicans, or the Democrats, or the Russians, or the Arabs, or Obama, but do not sit down and ask ourselves, “What can we do to alleviate if not eliminate this problem?”
Oh my! A light bulb just turned on!!! I just realized that, though we cannot…probably ban private ownership of weaponry…we could ban private ownership of assault weapons!!! That would solve many of these mass slaughterings immediately. But, oh…that will not fly, will it? We will “vote with our feet” that we wish for a few more of our children be slaughtered, dying a painful and unnecessary death, rather than infringe upon our, “2nd amendment rights.” This is certainly why, “Jesus wept,” and is still doing so. Our history is the Shakespearean, “tale told by an idiot…”
Here is a list of my blogs. I invite you to check out the other two sometime.
