The mightiest Army in the world, the mightiest air and sea forces ever existed, the mightiest economy, the best and most abundant universities in the world, the unparalleled film industry, the most advanced space programs leading to a man reaching the moon and walking on its soil. Despite owning this mighty power and mighty tools, America is unable to defeat a mere handgun, and appear to be helpless to defend itself. One look at the Crime sections in some of the prime US newspapers, sums it all. The statistics of deaths related to gun violence are both painful and scary; and the numbers are increasing. The questions are what, why and how. What are the root causes, why it's continuing and rising and how to keep it under control. No doubts there is plenty of academic research tackling the problem, yet it has failed at least to maintain the same level of human life loss, let alone bringing it down. America's dilemma is that the gun which takes off innocent lives is the same gun that protects lives either by using it or by the mere knowledge of its existence.

Control is multifaceted. Starts with households controlling their guns, to how guns are sold , to post sale monitoring and most important is the non-stop penetration of guns black market. Strengthening police (with more training on how to avoid shooting if there is no real danger) , more hidden cameras and finally severe punishment, including capital punishment if the problem reaches unbearable levels to which it seem it is going. I think Hollywood greed has unintentionally promoted over the decades guns as sign of manhood an bravery. It has alarmingly projected in some action movies the killing of a person is just a scene after which you move to the next scene which is probably two people having ice cream on a bench. To me there is no short term solution to the problem and any attempt for short term doomed to fail. Both sides of the debate have their good reasons . First Hollywood should repent and use the next decade undoing what it did. Project a more peaceful society where there is no use of guns as well as projecting the crime of killing an innocent person as a horrible action with the culprit paying a very very heavy price. Also, the tendency of some of the media outlets to spread hate, degradation of other minorities and cultures projecting them as evil may have fueled some killers especially if it is coupled with unstable mind.

The other side of the coin is equally important. The question is why now and why it is rising almost by the day. Crime is as old as human life and America is no exception, but the intensity and frequency is what is alarming and what needs attention. Putting aside the mentally ill and account closing among gangs, this leaves the motive being hate, theft, rape and paid killing. There is no magic in resolving this and any solution is long term. It takes only 1-massive, strong, unbiased, multi-ethnic, multi-belief, police force. 2-Attention to minorities in terms of living conditions, education and employment. 3-for clearly convicted killers who confessed to their crime or for whom evidence is beyond doubts, jail time must be tougher than outside time. Hard labor and regular lashing could be considered. 4-intelligence, intelligence and intelligence. Proactive rather than reactive to save lives and hold the criminal and mentally ill before it is to late.

God keep America Safe.

Has anyone done a correlation between TV Violence, Movie Violence, and Video Game Violence and the people committing Violent acts?


I have not played these games, but I understand that some of them give rewards for the more people killed.

The Xbox live account I use to play video games is a world wide thing. People from all over play these violent games such as Call of Duty and the USA is the only country with a mass shooter problem. Violent Hollywood movies and TV shows are broadcast or are available world wide also. As for rewards from video games, only points and higher rank are the rewards, nothing material is gained.

The U.S. is unique among nations, in many regards. The aspects of that uniqueness are the causes of unusual violence and behavior. Particularly the aspects of greed, selfishness, self absorbed personalities, callousness, insecurity, and many others. The true causes of violence will never be addressed honestly because they will be too revealing of just who, why, and what we are.

Saudi Arabia has spent billions of dollars on Western military equipment while President Trump ridiculing them.

Saudi Arabia funded Pakistan's nuclear program and has over ten bombs set aside for them.

Saudi Arabia has funded separatists groups, ISIS, etc. Saudi Arabia single handedly destroyed Yemen.

Many Saudi's students in the USA drink, use pornography while pretending not to miss a prayer.

May almighty (Allah?) punish those Saudi's who brought destructions, killings to other parts of the world.

I see no point in giving the murderous house of Saud all of the credit for destruction and murder, in fact they should receive very little credit. They are "merely" a front for the US government entity executing the instructions of the transnational power elites which in turn were conveyed to them by the global giants.

Saudi led? Hardly. Israeli bombings in Gaza, Iraq, Lebannon, Syria? Nyet. Try US led.

Shad,


I agree entirely on this point. The more I read about history the more I realize that organized government, especially the United States government, is nothing more than an organized criminal operation, owned wholly by corporations. From the very inception of our "experiment in democracy" the wealthy have structured the government to maintain power in their hands. The government is their tool solely and they have often used it against the citizens that support it through their taxes when those citizens try to use government to their purpose rather than that of big business. The early labor movements were attacked and killed by their own government at the behest of their employers. Retired veterans were shot on the White House lawn by U.S. troops because the dared to protest for their pay promised to them by the military as a retirement plan. The suddenness and brutality with which the government will attack its own citizens at the behest of business is both undeniable and shocking. And organized government is not only the tool of business at home but abroad. The best thing we can do for ourselves as citizens is REFUSE TO JOIN TO MILITARY. Educate our children that the military has ZERO to do with freedom and democracy and that they are basically signing up to murder people around the world to open the door for corporations to exploit the people of that country. It is hard for me because I come from a patriotic military family and they can't see how they have been used by the military as cannon fodder and he noble goals they were sold as reason for their sacrifice was really total bullshit.


I heard a commercial on the right wing radio station, the only talk radio we can get in WV, telling all young men to sign up for selective service because "its just something you have to do" It immediately enraged me. That corporate America uses our tax dollars, forced from us to fund the military for their private use and not only that they demand the use of our children for their corrupt murderous adventures in other countries.


These facts are not even hidden or cleaned up for public consumption. Apparently we are more than willing to do business with the evil Saudi regime that commits atrocities out in the open, but won't even speak to Venezuela because Trump said, "We've gone don the road too far for talks with Venezuela." Really? What road is that? The road where you conduct a SECOND coup of their sovereign country in the interest of getting control of their oil?


Sometimes its just to much to grasp.


Take care,


M

Will those who talk/write about "America" PLEASE be specific about that meaning JUST the US OF America, unless they mean all the Americas. The distinction is important. Does Bolivia, one of The Americas, support Trump's "American" policies? Rhetorical question.

"America" meaning JUST the US OF America is un-defined....and too damn patriotic sounding...as if we are to break into song or something.

Bolivians, Uruguayans, Mexicans and Canadians, etc. etc , are ALSO Americans...being in N. or S. or Central America. Or shall we in the USA co-op the collective name for just US....to maybe suggest to the world that ALL "Americans", North, South and Central, support "American" policies? That's a laugh.

PS: Hawaii, a colonized stolen US state, isn't even IN The Americas...it's in Polynesia.

PS; It's easier, with less ink and syllables, to just say "the US" instead of "America"..though "US citizens" may take a nano-second longer to write than the unclear, non-specific term "Americans".

Here in the real world, violent crime in America has been declining steeply for two decades, and is now back to the levels of the early 1960s. It's the instant information of the internet and cable news that gives us the wrong impression.

First, "America" is the way it is today because of misleadership. I use the word misleadership with the same meaning as that of Glen Ford of the Black Agenda Report. The misleadership is apparent. The US entity is finally been exposed not as some recent aberration, but instead as a long history of discrete evil steps by the elites to behave in a unitary manner.

The elites have the resources to eliminate the effects of the propaganda of the US experience and history that creates bad "wiring" in k-12 and beyond american brains.

Second, "americans" if we can see our way through the fog, need to establish local control for our safety and security and to ally with other communities that are awakening to do the same, unless you believe that we can trust the man?

Speaking of the man, I heard that a NYC "judge" let two rapist undercover police off with probation after they had plead guilty to rape. This is just one of many grievances that must be rectified.

Third, the elites only respect force. When their necks are on the line, they capitulate to demand. Otherwise if you come half stepping...well, they will do what they are good at...killing. They are demonstrating that brazenly with the in our face murder of Epstein. Remember JFK, September 11 2001? With their private military they confidently believe that they are untouchable.

So I will keep my guns and armaments if you don't mind...bearing mind that one day we may decide to move beyond talk about equality to actually holding the evil ones to account including a killer government that hourly adds more deaths to the millions it has already murdered.

Like others have pointed out; the culture of the USA and the easy availability of gun are the two factors related to why the USA has a violent gun epidemic that no other nations have.

I want to speak to the issue of our school culture. It is the place society could choose to shape our cultural norms and so influence our societies future culture.

I believe that from an early age our culture is formed largely by our school culture. I suggest schools should train students in building rapport (a close and harmonious relationship in which the people or groups concerned understand each other's feelings or ideas and communicate well).

Imagine a school where top students mentor small groups of students while teachers mentor those top students in the skills of mentoring and building rapport while also monitoring group progress on both the subject matter and rapport. and assist/encourage those other students on asking questions to gain understanding of the subject matter and building rapport with their mentors.


In short I believe kids should be taught the skill of building rapport and be inculcated within a culture (the school system) where rapport is the cultural norm.

I guess it is the local school boards. I assume they could institute change. What I am proposing is such a major change that I suspect it would take Universities/scholars to recognize/realize violence, hate, bullying, discrimination, and other conditins are rooted in psychological maladaptation and to deal with that requires creating environments where healthy psychological functioning is the norm/the culture.


Parenting skills need to be taught because kids who are neglected/ignored are at great risk of maladaptive conditioning at home. School is an place of training; but we do not train to achieve healthy psychological functioning nor do the school staff function that way. Inclusion not exclusion, listening not lecturing, focusing on group cohesiveness, etc.

The elites decide which parts of culture to allow to flourish. They are in the driver's seat. Gun violence? An elites' project. Propaganda, social programming, the elites. Poisoned air, water, food, trashed oceans, climate change...the elites. They are the problem. They do not appear to be willing to change their behavior. Why is that? I think that it is probably because they are insane and they are going to take down the whole kit and kaboodle...caput, finis, zip, doodah, nada...please add your own evaporation terms...

I am not American, but my country Australia is fast become what the U.S. is today, and IMHO even worse. I believe events in the U.S. are driven right from the top. It is INGRAINED in American society, to BULLY, CAJOLE and then if that doesn't work, FORCE people to do their bidding. Check out U.S. history, it's all there, right from day one. If the Government constantly tells U.S. citizens they are "exceptional" folks start to believe it, and look down on everyone else as substandard, who should bow down to the "exceptional" people. Again, this is quiet evident, you'd need to be blind to not recognise this. After all, how many INNOCENT people's have died, World wide, as a direct result of this behaviour of America ??? So if the Government behaves in this manner, is not that same Government made up of American people ?? (I say that whilst recognising the FACT that many of those same representatives have DUAL citizenship, and may not represent the U.S. citizens at all times) If these folks behave in this manner, why the questions if the ordinary citizens ALSO behave in exactly the same manner ???? America is ROTTEN from the core, until that is recognised and resolved many more American (INNOCENT ??????) folks are going to go the same way these victims have gone.

How to fix it ????? First they need to recognise the ROT within, face it directly, then if they have the BACKBONE (Which I seriously doubt) deal with it.
