Re "The Connecticut shooting: Symptoms and causes," by Maria Thompson Corley—
America’s scandalous global reputation as a gun-happy video game
derives from the militarization of our society. Our pathetic ideology of
exceptionalism merely makes our societal blindness inaccessible to
rational discourse. Eisenhower warned us, but we were too busy taking
over the world to see how evil we have become. Please read Tom
Engelhardt’s The United States of Fear to see how we got ourselves in such a mess.
