Isn’t it interesting how mental illness hardly massacres anybody in the UK, Canada, or Australia? Or how guns don’t massacre anybody in heavily armed countries like Switzerland, India, or Germany?
There’s clearly more to this than guns and mental illness. We should be digging deeper. Americans have always had guns. Shootings only started in the 90s. Our media whittled down from over 50-plus companies to just six corporate-owned entities also in bed with pharma, food, and tech. Mass shootings tripled between 2011 and 2014….at the exact time that social media and sensationalized news hit their heights.
