Random Acts of Violence

By now everyone has heard of the horrific shootings in Aurora Colorado.  I have not even been able to bring myself to actually watch the coverage of this.  Suffice to know that 12 precious human beings were killed and many others wounded all because a young man wanted to act out his aggression in a way that would bring him glory.  I say this after reading Gavin de Becker’s book “The Gift of Fear And Other Survival Signals That Protect Us From Violence.”  I don’t remember which section of the book is dedicated to information involving assassins, mass murderers and their mindset after their attacks, but it was documented that a number had complained if their random act of violence did not receive the same amount of news coverage than a previous assassin.  This shows a huge ego, not to mention complete detachment from reality and lack of compassion.  Apparently these kinds of mass murderers or assassins have similar personalities.    The book is very well written and manages to entertain as it covers all aspects of violence in our world from children to co-workers to partners to random acts.  It gives you information, ideas and tips to try and keep you as safe as you can be in a very cold and cruel world.

A must read for everyone because it deals with survival on a daily basis.  It is loaded with valuable information regarding the fact that we are all born with radar to distinguish crazy.  There might be a real incentive to stay sober for some of you because one of the most dangerous things a woman can do is go out drinking and hope to meet someone she actually wants to be with.  If your brain is altered, your radar will be altered too and you risk making the same mistakes that some poor women make, never to be seen alive again.  He points out that little “gut” feeling you may have about someone is usually correct.  We all have internal radar and instincts like other forms of animals do, but our society teaches us to ignore it and go against our feelings.  Kids that are bullied usually get real stomach-aches or other physical ailments before going to school because their bodies are trying to warn them not to go to a potentially dangerous place.  Our society makes them go, regardless and everyone just has to hope for the best.

This is probably why so many women that leave demon seeds end up murdered.  They can feel what this monster’s intent is, and try to leave for survival.  Not everyone who flies off the handle is capable of murder, but they could accidentally kill someone in a fit of rage.  Everyone does not leave abusive situations and most don’t turn into murder.  In my opinion, there is a lot to consider in these types of circumstances, but a woman knows if the person she once loved has no regard for her as a human being and this is the time to worry.  It is that very lack of empathy and compassion that can easily lead someone to go beyond mere assault to murder.  We are animals and are supposed to be raised in civility.  To learn manners, cause and effect and hopefully to be raised in the Word, learning to practice the Golden Rule.  This is what allows us to live in relative safety.  Knowing our fellow-man has some degree of self-control because without this, we are doomed as human beings.

It was much safer years ago when most of us were raised by the words in the Holy Bible and we were just plumb afraid to go to hell.  Now our liberal media message is there really is no God, but be nice anyway.  Not a lot of incentive to those fighting inner demons of rage and it’s not fair to them or the rest of us who may end up their victim.  Years ago you were raised to have a conscience which enabled you to fight those demon urges and this is because of the very truth Jesus taught.  You do have the power to move a mountain if you walk uprightly.  This knowledge in the truth gave so many more people the power needed to control themselves in any manner because it was written that you could move a mountain if you had enough faith.   Now many have stolen the words of Christ, debased and warped the meaning to “anyone can do anything they put their mind to” like mind over matter.  This is not what faith is.  It is the kind of things learned from motivational speakers and Scientologists all over.  If it helps people, more power to them, as Jesus told his disciples “those that are not against us are for us.”  He also stated that when the blind is leading the blind, sooner or later they will all end up in the ditch.  The problem I have always had with liberal idealism is the fact that they love the sinner and the sin.  They began teaching children years ago with well placed TV commercials that “the most important person in the whole wide world is you, and you should know it.”  I don’t know what ignorant person thought this was a good idea, but it wasn’t.  Some psychologists tried to convince parents not to give little Johnny a guilty conscience, it would only mess him up.  Now those without conscience are messing the rest of us up.
