    Default Killing: Does it ever get easier



    well they keep saying ''no'' in the movies. I don't believe that's true.
    edit: i mean i dont believe that the standard ''no'' given by movie heroes to be realistic. The brain is nothing if not adaptable

    Many a Nazi could attest to the fact that it does.

    EDIT: If they're left. I don't think many Nazis are left, though.

    Speaking from no direct experience, I say 'yes'.

    Unfortunately I suspect it does.

    I've been reading a book about neurological research done with the Dalai Lama in which they examine the cause and moderation of negative emotion. He happens to mention that Tibetan children are shocked and upset when someone kills a bug. I would like that to be my starting point and then hopefully not to get too desensitized over the course of a lifespan.

    Thanks for posting the book, I was thinking of doing that a few minutes ago. Excellent read on the topic. The experts agree that yes, killing gets considerably easier. But the psychological costs remain high, and appears to be cumulative for many.

    Yes. <Insert serial killer poser joke here>

    This is the kind of thread a serial killer with a dry sense of humor might like to cull names from.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
