    They haven't had it for a long, long time.

    I'd argue we're gathering it through actions like these =X

    @Zarathustra

    If anything, I think the rise in these attacks is a sign of the widespread mental unhealth of the modern world.
    you should read Derkhiem (sp?). this was basically what i was thinking the entire time i was reading this thread. he's like Jung, but deals with society and the inner workings of it whereas Jung dealt with individuals. if i can remember correctly, what you're describing is anomie, and it occurs because we have no culture or other "binding material" that would give someone the coping mechanisms to avoid behavior that is so unsocial.

    Check your history books, kids. Humans have been losing their shit all along. We just have new ways of acting on those fucked up impulses, & increased global coverage on current events. This shit's terrible, but it ain't new.

    Yes, in an ideal world, we'd only need guns to protect ourselves from packs of wolves or zombies.
    But this world NOW is what we have to deal with, and guns exist. We cannot unmake them. No law or regulation on a piece of paper is strong enough to thwart greedy, corrupt or desperate people from supplying one another with the tools they need for however they're attempting to ''cope'' with their lives. It's just the sad truth of the situation.

    Not to mention, I imagine controlling a small European country may be slightly easier due to its size difference. I mean, look at a map. USA is huge. That's a factor, and further complicates any formulation of consistently effective safety measures, law enforcement or crazy spreekilling prevention.

    For those idealists in the thread crying out FIX THIS!
    ..I wish that were possible, but I don't see any simple or viable solution- considering the multidimensional factors at play here- to assert such an idea that this-- people--- mental illness---- manipulation--- corruption--- are curable on a grand scale.. well.. that's just naive and in of itself solves nothing, does it? Just leaves us with heads filled with shiny ideals that make us feel ''better'' ---- and empty hands grasping at empty space.

    Accepting our own weaknesses as a society; that we cannot see everywhere at once, that we cannot control the universe- or even individuals- is indeed, a bitter pill to swallow. I mean, there's no harm in trying to improve, but I think it's important to consider what is honestly possible in the current world we all live in.

    Thanks for the thought.

    I haven't read Durkheim, but when I used "alienation", I was thinking of Marx (and theoretical followers thereafter).

    I'll use this occasion to read his wikipedia page (heh, 2nd line: Marx, Durkheim and Weber are the principal architects of the modern social sciences).

    Agreed. The only solution, if anything, is to save your own world. I mean, if you want. You can be a victim too. Maybe enough victims will produce drastic global measures against these things too.. but I doubt it. History is full of forgotten victims.

    News says 71 people were shot in total now.
