    Just as you have extrapolated from my position, I'm doing to yours.
    My intent is understand the causes for mass murder in order to reduce them. That is why I started this thread.


    Seems all you're here to do is preach your ideology.
    There are other places for that.
    Took you longer than usual this time for the insults to start!

    You are not listening. Let's say it was 24. Oh, what the hell, let's "round it up" to 100! There, we had (or could have, who knows) 100 mass shootings in the last seven years! A whopping 0.32 per million of population. But those vicious Finns - they had 0.4 per million! (Two shootings).
    Conclusion: Finland is 125% as violent as we are. Nonsense, right?

    Statistics regarding rare events is basically useless. We cannot claim that "American society has more mass shootings than any other".

    I don't believe you.
    In most threads you participate in, you come to a conclusion and try to beat everyone over the head with it.

    Do female Chimpanzees commit mass murder like male Chimps do?
    Which species displays the most violent tendencies toward its own kind? - Curiosity
    Out of all the mammals on Earth, only chimpanzees and humans tend to enact lethal violence upon members of their own species. Other mammals may display aggression or violence in order to compete for food, territory or mates, but rarely act so violently as to kill their competitors.

    Scientists have observed chimpanzees forming raiding parties that attack stragglers from neighboring groups of chimps. These attacks are vicious, with several chimps from the raiding party attacking a single victim. Renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall witnessed a battle for territory among chimps that lasted four years. In the end, one group of chimps killed every chimp in the opposing group. Male chimps have also been known to commit infanticide, though its not definitively clear why the infant chimps are killed
    Not to take this thread off into the "chimps and humans are cousins" direction, but...seems like the most logical place to look when trying to understand human behavior.

Hmm...
    So all the other rich countries with less mass murders you consider to be feminized, rather then just not as hyper-militarized as the US?

    Really, you used the study to support your opinion that the U.S. is/has more mass murder.
    Then the study says it shouldn't be used as such.

    It doesn't validate your opinion at all.
    Hilarious that you hang on to such opinions, even when your own information disputes it.

    Funny, yet I saw neither the terms "hyper-militarized" nor "rich countries" used in your source theory discussion.
