  •  We could address our national sociopathy (2+ / 0-)

    "We" blow people up every day in lands far away. And the "we" who actually press the buttons are normal, well adjusted folks who go home and watch Dancing With The Stars in the evening.

    We give them medals, not psychoanalysis. Most of the people they blow up, by the way, are Muslim peasants who couldn't find Boston on a map.

    I think this is a be fruitful discussion, Laurence, but even more so if we consider incidents like Boston or Columbine in the context of a culture/political system that has slaughtered and maimed millions of people for no good reason over the past 50 years and that imprisons more of its own citizens than any other nation.

    We're talking about aberrant behavior in a nuthouse.

    Great post. Thanks.
