Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
I wonder how many of China's mass stabbings can be chalked up to the effects of the gender disparity in the population.
Patrick, there are no mass stabbings in China (or Israel). Once they got rid of guns, everything was awesome. That is lies and propaganda from the pro-gun lobby group
Come on Captain, one a day? Even the government doesn't believe that.https://www.nraila.org/articles/20150807/mass-shootings-rare-government-study-says"A new study by the Congressional Research Service, by far the most thorough and comprehensive of its type to date, confirms that mass shootings continue to be rare in the United States."and http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/08/04/congressional-study-shows-no-mass-public-shooting-epidemic/"counter to claims of '207 mass shootings' in the first 207 days of 2015–a claim CNN’s Fareed Zakaria suggested is 'almost literally true'–the CRS study shows an average of “21 mass shootings” annually in the US during the time period of 1999-2013. And of the most televised and widely reported type of attack–a 'mass public shooting'–the CRS report found an annual occurrence of '4.4' a year"study:http://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R44126.pdf
Their brains have been scrambled by SSRI drugs. Below is a quote from one site devoted to this problem.The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.Multiple credible scientific studies going back more than a decade, as well as internal documents from certain pharmaceutical companies that suppressed the information show that SSRI drugs ( Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors ) have well known, but unreported side effects, including but not limited to suicide and other violent behavior. One need only Google relevant key words or phrases to see for themselves. www.ssristories.com is one popular site that has documented over 4500 " Mainstream Media " reported cases from around the World of aberrant or violent behavior by those taking these powerful drugs.Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/039752_mass_shootings_psychiatric_drugs_antidepressants.html#ixzz3oB6CA4AI
The TV networks and print media are not going to risk offending their advertisers, and the drug companies are big advertisers. The same goes for the medical journals, which sell lots of ads to drug companies. The doctors themselves get perks from drug companies in return for prescribing their products. So things like this get ignored: http://www.westernjournalism.com/mass-murders-psychiatric-drugs-and-gun-control/
I saw an article on another site that blames all of this on "toxic masculinity". As if we could control men and make them more like women and that would solve all our problems. The real cause is Feminism. Once upon a time children where raised by both parents. Girls grew up learning from their moms what it meant to be a woman and from their dads they learned what a good man was like, so they would grow up to be modest and thoughtful and caring and make good decisions about who to marry. Boys grew up learning to respect women and learned from their fathers what it meant to be a man, to control themselves, to be responsible for their own actions, and to channel their energy into productive activities that would benefit them and society. Instead we have girls growing up to be sluts who only want to date bad boys who treat them like shit, and boys who don't respect women or authority and join gangs and act violently. All because some ugly women who would never have a chance at finding a good looking man convinced all of the other women that being married and having kids was a form of slavery that degraded women. Now we live in a world of fatherless children who are lost and out of control. Yeah, let's drug all the boys and make them mindless automatons. That will fix everything.
Great post. I remember during the worst years of the recession being unemployed over a year, in student debt, and so tired of not having income that I would resort to illegal activities to try to make money. Thankfully I never got caught or resorted to violence. I could have easily gone down the wrong path, though.
Stefan Molyneux made a video a while back in which he gave what I consider to be one of the most profound commentaries on what turns many of these boys into monsters; total indifference toward the inner life of males. This means zero expressed interest in what they like, their passions, hobbies, dreams, desires, ambitions. This indifference, perhaps even contempt, eventually results in a total lack of empathy on the part of the boy/man, who has literally been compelled to turn off his emotions in order to survive. I promise you none of these boys/men who commit these murders were raised in homes by strong fathers who were deeply invested in their inner lives. Before they develop the capacity to murder so heinously, their empathy has to be eradicated; that doesn't just happen on day, but through a lengthy process.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6r8HzhaAaMThat Breibart series The Sexodus also touched on this when quoting one of their interviewees. http://www.breitbart.com/london/2014/12/04/the-sexodus-part-1-the-men-giving-up-on-women-and-checking-out-of-society/"I can tell you as a heterosexual married male in management, who didn’t drop out of society, the message from the chicks is: ‘It’s not just preferable that you should **** off, but imperative. You must pay for everything and make everything work; but you yourself and your preferences and needs can **** off and die.'”Honestly, it reminds me of how the Soviet Union would put political dissidents in insane asylums, where they would eventually go insane themselves. For many boys, school and family life (especially being raised by a single mother) is akin to being a sane person in an insane asylum while having the staff gaslight and push you to insanity; and then we wonder why some of them actually go insane.
Another issue is all the stupid laws that prevent teen employment. As CC pointed out on a number of occasions here, does it really take 12 years to 'educate' someone? After 8th grade, you should have the option to either work even that means digging ditches, go to university, or go apprentice for a trade and make money while learning something useful.
