It's getting Violent out there...
Recent events including the Brawl in Auburn Hills and the Hunter Slaughter have left me with a feeling of, well, people are more violent than ever. It should be no surprise to anybody who even casually engages in pop culture that the there is no floor in the path of human behavior. We are being pumped up on fear, and fear has two reactions, hermit and permit. The Hermits sit back and stay out of the fray, the permitters, permit themselves to exercise their animal like impulses. We may or may not believing in the end times, but these are excessively violent times. I had someone tell me that they might join bu$h's war on terrorism, to "get some aggression out, on a 50 cal." Remember the good ole days when people used to have a punching bag, why can't it just be enough to do it on play-station? Why in our reality induced society can't we just be content to watch? As we propel our technically fused fear this hate that society, it should be no surprise that violence is here to stay. Will you permit yourself to Hermit up? When will that no longer be an option and when will you come face to face with the hate that burns our consumption of everything excess... and what will you do? Cock the hammer or continue to buy the lie?
