Blog Subject:  What I Think About

Most mornings I watch a bit of news switching between the big 3 cable guys from interesting item to interesting item or to whoever isn't at commercial. Yesterday and this morning, items about young teens commiting suicide after enduring all the bullying they could handle appeared along with a 12yo school shooting where the shooter might have been bullied and also commited suicide. I'm left in a state of stunned upset wondering why kids are commiting suicide because of bullying. I was bullied mercilously in grade school but never got suicidal or felt murderous. So I wonder if it's something new, or if it's always been like this but not covered as well. Reading around, I'm surprised to find scientific papers written as far back as the 70s addressing this very topic. More surprising, solutions have been discovered yet don't seem to have left the halls of academia as yet for the real world, been implemented, and solved this problem. So we're all left to scratch our heads and ask why, when we know why. If you're being violent, the capacity to think and feel love and affection is literally disabled in the brain, and vice-versa. In other words, if expressing positive love-filled thoughts you're incapable of expressing hate-filled ones.


The larger issue being too, a lack of affection and love and sex in a person's life often will result in hate filling in those gaps and violence acting out instead of love.


We know why violence will occur. We know how to prevent it. Yet we still decry sexuality at every turn so I'm forced to ask this question: Is it deliberate to perpetuate a violent country's militaristic agenda of domination of energy reserves in the middle east?
