Cause of "Gun Violence"
Why There is No Sustainable Peace in the
the real cause of the incidents of "gun violence" is our punishing
people for sleeping (this is real: ask just about any homeless
person!). This, of course, is only one example of the very many,
socially non-sustainable acts we (we, as in "we, the people")
commit against ourselves.
The reason we are so cruel to ourselves is that we are at war
perpetually. In times of open warfare when we fight other nations,
we direct our cruelty towards them. When there is a lull in the
hostilities towards other nations, the cruelty turns inwards and
serves "useful" purposes:
We keep ourselves in state of readiness for the next round of open
warfare with other nations by stressing ourselves as much as we
can--those who can stand the stress less become visible and are
eliminated before they can diminish our success on the battlefield.
Of course--by their becoming visible many innocent bystanders
become a casualty, but that is a price to pay for our being ready
for the real war, and despite all the sorry output in the media,
the cruelty that we exercise towards ourselves (the real
cause of most societal disorders) never diminishes.
The way to eliminate many societal disorders would be to eliminate
the stress that we are creating for ourselves in order to be better
in fight than any of our real and/or imagined adversaries. We would
have to start waging sustainable peace at least as vigorously as we
are waging war now. Till we come to this stage, we will continue to
suffer increasingly, and no amount of verbiage will ever
make any real difference.
