Deepest condolences to all involved in the tragedy unfolding in America around a massacre at an open air concert in LA.
Far from the “pure evil” of the remarks of the POTUS, there may be a simpler account of the illness that spewed out such carnage upon the unwitting members of one man’s meltdown.
It seems that the man who shot so many people came from a background of a family headed by a criminalised father, ill and diagnosed with mental disorders.
The brother of the man who did the shooting had no idea of how this incident could have happened, he said that his brother was in LA for a little gambling.
Without prejudice, it seems to me that the illness that took over the man with the weapon was addiction related, hidden to those nearest to him, explosive with insane resentments that were molten and unresolved deep inside his inner world.
Like a mortal Krakatoa, his resentments erupted as a spiritual implosion, an insane anger, cold and psychopathic, i.e. without conscience.
Stuck-addiction© attacks conscience and renders life as meaningless and repetitive. Gambling and other sick behaviours that unbraid the social, sexual and security instincts of universal animality, eventually collapse the ownership of that organic vehicle to a state lower than any animal that share these instinctive powers of biological life.
Then with all the power of a crazed horse, a mad bear, a wounded and dangerous tiger, an abused and contorted gorilla – flowing through the ice cold lens of a frozen heart – the bullets fly.
Illness, not pure evil, an illness that pumps through the whole world, the broken health systems that addict millions to prescribed painkillers, the broken hearts that drink and drug to get through the days, the promiscuity and perversion of a celebrity based culture that airbrushes away reality from the atrophied consciences of a mass hypnosis that calls itself the free world. This was the illness that spat out its signature tune across the melancholy of a Country and Western concert.
The leaders need to dare to face the dislocation of their Offices, away from partisan concerns. The people need to help them, for they are frightened.
