The Answer

What about the way we live.

 

Who’s to blame for the shooting?

 

What has facilitated the need for such drastic differences of opinion?

 

What if both sides are right and that’s the point?

 

In movies, in video games, in cartoons, in children’s books, on billboards, in magazines, in music, in stores, on products…every where you look today there is death, murder, celebration of violence, objectification of violence, objectification of the worst in humans.  Everywhere you look.  Everywhere you turn.  And yet so many people are blaming each other, blaming this side or that side for saying this or writing that.  As if those people are so important.

 

And is that the point.  Isn’t that the point with politics.  That one side is very very important.  That the people involved in politicking are somehow more important than everyone, anyone else.  That the world could not continue, that humans would simply burst, spontaneously and screaming into flames before quickly turning to ash and blowing away in the wind.  And can you guess what a bunch of people who think they are the most important people in the world spawn?  They spawn other people who comment on them who think that by commenting on the people who think they are the most important people in the world they, themselves become the most important people in the world.

 

And here we are, on January 12, 2011 and everyone is talking about Jared Loughner as though he is some kind of anomaly.  And the really really important people are doing what they do, trying to be the most important.  And we live in a world where children play murder every day, their eyes, their brains blind to anything else.  And we isolate and objectify the killing of the senator and the 9 year old and we so much want to solve it, please, we say, please we must know why, why, why, why and in that dreadful search for the answer we continue to lay the foundation for all our problems.  My god.  Does anyone see?  I mean I know that some people see, some people see for sure, but what about the rest of you.  Do you see yet?  Can you see what is really happening to our human race?  Are you courageous enough to be honest with yourself?

 

My god.  Jared Loughner is the reason for all the death and destruction and confusion in the world.  And the important people continue to bray.  There are others though, I am one, are you?  Have you found the answer your looking for.
