a thought

So  I  can’t  think  of  a  single time that mass murder/shooting /killing   has fixed  things.   Changed things maybe – but it  happens  again .  There are always others, there are always  enemies,there is another group of extremist.

Yet somehow, we  raise  people  that  believe  that killing lots  of people will make  what they don’t  like go  away.

I don’t  think killing is ever more  than  a short  term  solution.  State  sanctioned  death ( aka  the death penalty) stops one  person, but doesn’t prevent a problem. Even  killing  that  person  that was going to harm you – only  stops that  one  person. This  is  ot  a  judgement on defending yourself , but it  just isn’t getting to  the root  of the problem.

We accept  that  killing is something  that  people  do.
