As long as violence makes big bucks via politics and entertainment in our culture

we are going to live like animals compared to the rest of the civilized world.

The almighty buck is valued over the life of a child in this country.

Profit, however you can make it, via violence real or fantasized, is what this country is ALL about.

1. True, but

there was plenty of violence in the world before mass media and profit. For instance, people used to be skinned alive. And the guillotine was invented long before video games.

2. This kind of warped mass murder at a school was unheard of before the proliferation of hand guns in

and the emphasis on uber violence in films.

Look at all the blockbusters, hugely violent. It won't sell otherwise. This is why I left the film industry.
