    why do you think that is Lizzie? I read a lot of the gun debates on here and sometimes get involved myself but it seems no one has the right answer. Do you blame a violent media culture or maybe a overly medicated population? Or maybe something else?

    Useful in the effort to destroy your brain. It's also one of the most over prescribed pills in the world.

    My brain is just excellent, thank you. Those of my genius can distinguish between use and abuse.

    If you were brainwashed, would you be aware that you were brainwashed?

    Very likely multiple factors, but imo, the most critical factor is a lack of good and consistent parenting during childhood. It seems that many people aren't being taught to handle problems well, manage emotional crises, and are not learning how to form intimate human relationships, thus spend their lives feeling isolated from humanity. This is one of the things which enables them to kill their fellow man.

    No kidding.

    I grew up on Bugs Bunny/Roadrunner cartoons and John Wayne movies, and I don't have issues.

    1. Medication dulls emotion
    2. Ultra violent culture (video games, movies are mostly anti-human pro-violence)
    3. Total loss of spiritual thinking, the younger generation is primarily Epicurean-atheist who first and foremost work for self (recipe for disaster combined with the two aforementioned attributes)

    Well, it was much ado, but it was about something. It was about a man who wanted to die.
