Nations usually collapse from within. The citizens stop believing in something bigger than themselves. For some people, it’s religion, for others it might be government, or family, but we must believe in something.
The mentally disturbed killer who slaughtered two innocent reporters this week had shown obvious signs of serious mental illness but no one could do anything because of the laws we have protecting his rights, particularly since he is black. He had a long, bizarre history of gay porn, fights over perceived racism, and an inability to keep a job.
Nothing happened to get him serious help or committal no matter how dangerous he showed himself to be.
His hatred for the female reporter he killed stemmed from her saying she was going into the field. He took it to mean the cotton field where slaves were sent.
Vester had a mental illness and then the leftist ideology influenced him – the black victimhood, the gay victimhood, and all the rest of the insanity from the left. It wasn’t a gun culture that influenced him. He was directly influenced by liberalism.
Vester Flanagan aka Bryce Williams claimed that racial and sexual harassment made him kill.
O’Reilly discussed it with two therapists on the O’Reilly Factor last night and it would be very interesting to hear the readers’ viewpoints on this.
He used the example of Williams and other mass killers recently blazoned across the front pages of our newspapers to discuss the need to believe in something more important than ourselves, for him it’s religion.
These evil crimes are tied to nihilism he believes.
The next video is from Clay Christensen of Harvard Business School. He tells a story on this video of a Chinese Marxist who said democracy works because of religion and because people choose to follow the law. They follow the rules because they aren’t just accountable to society, they are accountable to God.
Mr. Christensen believes that if you take away religion, you can’t hire enough police.
