    This is a good point. If you watch the Zeitgeist movies Peter Joseph created, the shooter’s YouTube videos, face book page and reported school outbursts gain some context.

    I think it would be just as wrong to blame Peter Joseph for this tragic event as it is to blame Sarah Palin or Glenn Beck but it’s obvious that Zeitgeist had more of an influence on this young man’s deranged mind than anything anyone from the right said or did.

    Until he gets a psychological evaluation, I think its hard to claim something like that. Do you know the workings of his mind?

    I don’t but his best friend does and claimed that Zeitgeist had a huge influence on the shooters thinking and mindset.


    It fits his YouTube movies, the books he loves and pretty much everything we know about this guy thus far.
