Mass Murder in the USA… Descending Further into the Abyss

Gratuitous Murder in the USA

Gratuitous Murder in the USA

Well here goes. A short and succinct rant from yours truly. Regarding the newest spate of mass murders; whether it was the one inside a Charleston Church or the dozens of other various sundry around the country, I am fed up with the Violence in the US of A regardless of whether it is race related or just gratuitous. The violence in America dwarfs by several magnitudes of ten what we here in Europe, Canada and Asia experience.

“Several Magnitudes of Ten” may seem like a vast exaggeration and for all intents and purposes it may be so. But if magnifying the extent to which the US of A have descended into Hell will aid in getting them out if it, I will take artistic licence in doing so in the hopes that highlighting this malaise will aid in finding a long term cure. America needs to nurture its children into a more civil human model. But of course that won’t happen, as you need crazies to fight the ongoing wars around the world and to continue perpetrating them to keep the big industrial war machine business greased up and running like a perpetual clock.

Oh and lest we forget the corporately run private prisons. The USA has the highest prisoner population in the world…period! That seems to be quite the convenient coincidence. Or is it? Prisons for Profit?. You would think that would be a conflict of interest. No? Hell no…Prisoners for Profit works. It provides cheap labour and fills the coffers of those who benefit from human misery. Kind of a modern form of “Legalised Slavery”.

It’s time that the US of A takes care of its own business before forcing its concept of what democracy is on others. Democracy in the USA is a misnomer. It is a sham, a parody of a once wonderful concept that has been replaced by a brutal militaristic state. Live by the Sword, Die by the Sword.

As a caveat, the 21-year-old man accused of killing nine people as they worshiped at  Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina has a criminal past. Dylann Roof was arrested twice this year and images of him posted to social media definitively show a racist ideology.

That’s all Folks…
