The Second Amendment still protects us against the greatest killer of all: government. Our problem is nihilism, not guns, and kindness may help fix that.
I’m still struggling through this gosh-darned cold, so my energy is a bit low. I’ve done a podcast and want to throw the link up here, but you’ll have to wait a little while for the longer post and the links to other information. In brief, the point of the podcast is that, in the wake of mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, we need to remember that the Second Amendment still protects us against the greatest killer of all: government. The change in our society shouldn’t be about guns; it needs to be about morality. We’ve reverted to a neo-paganism that devalues human life, leaving us more open to mass shootings. Lastly, I suggest that simply being kind may be something of an antidote to the alienation that seems to drive some shooters.
