Yes, it is. At least, I find it so. In the wake of this latest incident everyone seems finally ready to get up, off the couch and demand gun legislation. I do not oppose sensible gun legislation - not at all.
I oppose SILENCE.
It is said the latest perpetrator suffered from aspergers. The mentally ill rarely go on killing sprees - and almost never on their own.
I personally know several people, perhaps scores of them, subjected to the labels of our mental health community, and with that all of the scorn and derision that goes with it - to say nothing of the neuro-leptic malaise foisted upon them through modern pharmacology - and for no other reason other than someone fucked with them in a very powerful, and particular manner.
You can tell - when someone begins insisting anything regarding aliens and they become nervous, their voice trembles, their hands shake, you know - they have been spanked by a human engineer.
There are no aliens - it's just another lie, told by actors on a stage.
And while we are shocked by this latest incident, no one mentions the abundance of death as American children fight for control over street corner sales territory - gun violence which has itself killed far more of our children in the last year than all four of the latest mass shootings combined.
I am sick of the lies. Just as I am sick of the silence.
More people will die. That is absolutely certain. So while you agitate, for greater gun control and for changes among our mental health community, consider carefully. Any of you - or your own children - may be next.
The next icon of death, designed to instill fear - to instill obedience, to instill silence.
The next chemically restrained victim of our scientific achievement.
In the shadow of silence
cowardice breeds -
tears born of horror
become a river of shame.
