Well well...it seems the MSM is nudging toward my assesment/theory of James Holmes the Aurora shooter.
Foreign press...I haven't heard as much as peep out of our bought off media.

Also since it is beginning to be mentioned at all?...you had better believe that there are some high power psychological analysts and studies that are raising an alarm and likely have been for awhile now, the plausable denial exit is narrowing....but this thing is too big to fail...and what is the answer they have?...Counseling to get you "back on track"...

Of course they are NOT really getting anywhere near the real underlying conspiracy that is the most important facet being revealed by this latest murder rampage.

THAT being that there are going to be more of these episodes and that they are going to increase in frequency, which indeed they are, because there is a "system" in place that is creating the perfect storm for the creation of perpetrators.

Take things back in the timeline of social exposure for the average young person, since "young people" are the ones committing these "student" rampage murders for the most part by far.

The whole relatively new, in the last few decades, PC type culture that doesn't really allow losing, not like it used to at all in any case. As much as losing sucks? it teaches you coping skills. You learn that you can pick yourself, try harder, strive to do better at whatever tried and lost at and maybe next time? you just might win, or at least not suck as bad at whatever you were doing. THAT is a powerful lesson. It might also teach you that whatever you were doing?...well maybe that just isn't for you. In the past if you failed out of something? there was a viable alternative.

If you sucked at sports?...you could go for the chess club. If you sucked at music? you could try at woodshop or another art and most importantly if you weren't such a great student?...you could go for the "vocational school" option and learn a trade. Now?...vocational schools at the secondary levels of school, High school, are virtually non existant. Before you say "well everything is made in China now, so of course there aren't vo-tech schools anymore" you cannot send trades like electricians, Carpenters, Plumbers, HVAC techs etc etc to frikkin China. There are many more trades aside from building trades which also cannot be outsourced.

Somewhere along the line this country has made a shift. Maybe some of that was due to liability issues...these trades do have inherant dangers in them, ask anyone you know who practices them if do not believe that is true, but more than one electrician has been killed by electricity and people can and do get injured in the trades. So for whatever reason the shift was made to a more "academic" curriculum.

The primary and secondary school (k-12) curriculum was dumbed down along the way. The overall climate of PC increased..there are really no right or wrong choices, just choices, you don't win, lose or fail, you "participate", I'm OK, You're OK no matter what fucked up thing you are doing, now it's just an "alternative lifestyle" which is growing to encompass more and more bizzare and or deviant behaviors. Mainstreaming kids with developmental problems because in the past where "special ED" programs gave extra attention where it was deemed to be needed, those programs are very few and far between now, because someone decided that "truamatizes" the children by seperating them off into a scarlet letter "dummy short bus retard" type scenerio. Now everything is a "syndrome", if little Johnny or Sally are having what used be called disipline problems, well now they must have some sort of disorder and of course it's "Not their fault", it's some outside force that is to blame, we have a drug or "counseling" for that. Anything to pass the blame, eliminate fault or failure and to move a person along with as much ease and with as much "soft touch" as possible. A mountain of books could be written on the subject, but if you don't see the above happening?..you are either blind, in denial, or want it.

You couple that with a general overall theme of "You GOTTA go to College if you want to succeed"? You build the foundational structure for these flipouts we are seeing happen.

We have taken the educational system and turned it into psychological and social modeling machine. We have created an underlying theme that the only measure of success must begin with "higher education". A mere HS diploma isn't worth a damn anymore, a BS degree is regarded on the level a HS diploma used to be, also almost worthless. We have extended the time line of being a student well into a person's 20's by creating this social norm. We now have far more people who are young adults in their most formative adult years knowing nothing else but school.

When they face the end of life as they have known it?...there will always be a precentage of people that will not be able to handle that. We have increased that percentage by creating an enviorment where these people have been required to actually "handle" anything less and less. They have not gotten the opportunity to develop the coping skills earlier in life because less and less have ever had to cope with failing, we have eliminated failing and the hard life lessons it teaches in more and more aspects of daily life for young people by design.

There is also more desensitization to deviant behavor than at any other time in modern history, what were once considered abnormal or detrimental life and behavioral choices are now not only to be merely accepted by civilized society, their acceptance will be forced by law and they will be "mainstreamed" via education/re-education, "hate crime laws" all of it. There is more violence in media, video games, everywhere, than we have ever seen at any other point in time. The internet provides full out porn and some into an extreme which could never have been concieved of a mere 3 or 4 decades ago.

All these things which may seem minor in and of themselves, add up and have a cumlative effect of creating a disconnect to what are extreme behaivors. What was once considered apalling, is now the mundane. How many people now will be quicker to video tape someone getting the hell beat out of them, laugh about it and post it on YouTube rather than even considering intervening?..how many people were twattering about this Auroura shooting while actually being IN it?...How many of us just shrug off extreme and even sometimes violent destructive acts as if they are no big fucking deal today?....too many.

You combine these things. Desensitizing and acceptance of anything and everything as if it's all "ok", the removal of consequence for negative actions or being forced to deal with once normally routine failures. The herd-like cattle drive through an all encompassing yet finite "mission" to which there is little or no alternative except percieved failure at life? You will create in the most vulnerable sector of any population, which you are simultainiously increasing in numbers, some people who are going to meltdown when they see the end coming toward them.

IMO there is an ideological componant to this machine that has created this "side effect". Somewhere along the line it was decided that it would better for our country to be more geared toward "great thinkers" than actual "get your hands dirty" producers. We have been compelled by academia to perpetuate academia for it's own sake. They created a self fueling machine by using socio-psychological methods to drive the herd of the younger population towards higher education by making it easier to arrive, by making the alternatives less availible and also less palatable by society in general.

I believe that just recognizing the new academia machine itself is virtually undeniable. There is no more drilling readin' writin' and 'rithmatic, schools are social engineering modeling centers now and ecompass far more than just the "3 R's". Look at the massive transfer of dollars in student loans alone, which recently surpassed 1 trillion dollars in student loan debt in May of this year. Enrollment in post secondary degrees has increased almost 50% by over 6 million students from 1996 to 2009 far outpacing the growth in the age group's population. The push for "higher education" has been on, and is on now like never before.

Who could stand against it?...the "People for stoopidness" coalition?..."Americans for lack of education .org"? There never will be any group that is going to find fault in higher education in total because it will never exist at any significant level by nature, it's like being against "good things". There will be people who will disagree with some of the various aspects that are a part of it, but as a whole?...you might as well be "Pro-Cancer" and try that as a career move.

You can also trust that the people who are at the highest levels of academia and it's major food source, the govt, are well aware of that too. They know they are only going to face soft opposition that is never targeted at the whole, at best. They have a bullet proof machine that reaches far, wide and deep into the roots of a very powerfull and dominating force that shapes much of a civilized society, it's social and even economic norms, education....and they USE it to create in people what THEY want to see as the proper citizen who behaves in the proper manner.

I am not making excuses for these Laughner, Holmes, Cho assholes. They failed to deal with life, THAT IS the bottom line, fuck them and exterminate them like the vermin that they are. THEY made the choice, no one else, perhaps maybe it was the first time in their lives they will ever have to deal with the consequences of making a very significant and very wrong choice, maybe why they always semed so shocked that they actually are "in trouble" for what they have done.

What I AM saying is that we/they have a built a machine that is going to be cranking out these time bombs with an increasing regularity. Some portion of that increase is going to be due the copycat ooooh I see what you did there! "inspiration" but mostly it won't be.

It'll be because the institution of education and the masterminds who are at the helm of it created them from the clay of people who were not equipted to deal with what they were herded through. In their self proclaimed infinate wisdom they have once again created an epic nightmare with their grand "intentions". They intended to make things "less harsh", they created weaklings who couldn't cope. The intended to make people more open to "alternative life choices", they created people who can watch someone fuck a dog or worse, and it barely raises an eyebrow any longer. They intended to have as many people as possible get an advanced degree, they have created people that see no choice other than that and have known nothing else but the pursuit of it until they are well into their 20's.

When they see all they have known coming to it's eventual and inevitable end, or perhaps even the shock of blowing it by failing out in some way?...Life as they know it ends, sometimes traumatically so, or it will end as "school" almost always eventually ends, they can see it coming and they are not able to cope with it.

There are going to be some who cannot cope that will take as many as possible down right along with them, because they either cannot fathom the consequences, see any at all or they do not care about them.

Because that's what they've been taught.

Thank you.

Now here are the big questions....

You think they know?...I do...and if so for how long? and is there a concerted effort to supress the information?

I did a fast google search of "Stress college students" pretty generic and broad search terms...see the results for yourself...there are only a few hits in the first 4 PAGES of hits that are results even from this year, most by far are from last year and older...not a single hit about Holmes in all those first 4 pages...

Now with what just happened...does anyone else find that a bit odd?...

Great post.

I'm inclined to completely agree with you. It makes sense.

My question is this: Is this a relatively new phenomenon or has this been going on since before the msm has taken a grasp on it? Honest question, I don't know the answer to it. One of your links there starts its timeline in 1996. Perhaps past shootings were not as notorious, or may have been contained more on a local level, but our society has been raising creeps for a very long time now.

Still with these recent shootings, it seems the perps have this horrific sense of accomplishment for their terrible actions. Something they didn't possess while going through the school system.

Ya know prior to that timeline?...there seems to be very little, perhaps very little compiled, but it seems like a far more rare event in the past to me. Couple articles below...nothing really stands out as actual "student shooters"...I will look deeper, I am sure there are more.


You bring up a very interesting point...an "accomplishment"...that could be another pyschological componant...they weren't going to accomplish anything in school, maybe even after or so they were convinced....so they accomplished this..

How sad and frikkin demented is THAT concept?....

University of Iowa shooting 1991


The University of Iowa shooting took place at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa on November 1, 1991. The gunman was Gang Lu, a 28-year-old former graduate student at the university. He killed four members of the university faculty and one student, and seriously wounded another student, before committing suicide.


Perpetrator and motives
Gang Lu The perpetrator of the shooting was 28-year-old a former graduate student at the University of Iowa. Lu was a physics and astronomy student who had received his doctoral degree from the university in May 1991. (His dissertation was titled, Study of the "Critical Ionization Velocity" Effect by Particle-in-Cell Simulation.) He was still living in Iowa City after graduating.

As a graduate student Gang Lu was primarily a loner who was perceived by at least one other graduate student to have deep psychological problems. In the months prior to the shooting, Lu wrote five letters explaining the reasons for his planned actions. According to university officials, four of the letters were in English and were intended to be mailed to news organizations. One letter was written in Chinese. The letters have never been released to the public.

Lu was infuriated because his dissertation did not receive the prestigious D.C. Spriestersbach Dissertation Prize. This prize included a monetary award of $2,500. Gang Lu believed that winning the prize would have made it easier for him to get hired as a professor.

Lu was unable to find work because of the recession. Normally, in this instance, the physics and astronomy department would have given Lu a temporary postdoctoral fellowship. Unfortunately, there was not enough money to support him.

Excellent post my friend. As someone who has 3 family members in college presently, My wife is a yr away form her Acct degree, our oldest son grad. next fall (Comp science Arabic minor), and our youngest goes away in August. They all attest that many of their classmates have no biz in college. Some are forced by parents, some are afraid of getting a job & joining the real world and some think THEY HAVE to go to college to succeed.


I know many successful people who never set foot inside a University.

That has a lot to do with it IMO...a LOT to do with it...

Schools have taken over much of the job of parenting now and that has multiple downsides...teachers do not get to just teach any longer, even if they want to, they spend a hell of a lot of time playing parent to these children, especially in the younger years.

You also get the committee of correctness deciding how to not only educate, but playing a much more expanded role in raising the children...spawn of Pelosi and Reid....I'd rather have ZOMBIES!

Whoa. Here we go. History of School Shootings on Wikipedia

Been going on for a long time.

SHR - I still think your essay in the op is extremely valid. It's just a new breed of monsters is all.


Edit: The MASS shootings don't start really till about the 1960s. And barely. The trend starts to pick up in the 80s, and its just gets worse and worse from that point on.

''What happens when you're 25, you suck, and you don't get a medal as you always have?''

Actually...we all end up 'sucking' in the end to a certain extent. We all end up realising at some point 'is that it?'. We have been brought up, since I guess the baby boomers generation, to believe in some demi-god-like trajectory of individual accomplishment, that we can all become the 'be-all and end-all', the so-called 'American dream', (which was exported). Hardly anyone gets that whilst we might each of us be unique, we are none of us special...
But, I DO think it is the violence on screen that has the most profound effect...it sets up neural pathways in vulnerable undeveloped brains, images and suggestions that the developing brain simply cannot cope with (cf Rudolph Steiner). Whereas before we might have 'heard' of gruesome things we absorbed them on a brain level in a form that we could 'cope' with, now young people get to watch graphic imagery right in their faces with no buffering...

Re: Well well...it seems the MSM is nudging toward my assesment/theory of James Holmes the Aurora shooter.
Excellent post my friend. As someone who has 3 family members in college presently, My wife is a yr away form her Acct degree, our oldest son grad. next fall (Comp science Arabic minor), and our youngest goes away in August. They all attest that many of their classmates have no biz in college. Some are forced by parents, some are afraid of getting a job & joining the real world and some think THEY HAVE to go to college to succeed.


I know many successful people who never set foot inside a University.
 Quoting: mathetes


Same here...you know decades ago "college" didn't have to be the path for everyone and NOT taking that road was not looked down at like it is today.

I went for some, but I never finished...it truly annoyed the fuckall out of me...I was basically going for my trade which I was working in while going, mechanical technology, pre mech engineering. Some of the "Professors" were frikkin worthless at the lab (hands on) stuff...I ended up doing more for and in those classes than they did. I just said, screw this, I can do better opening my own shop one day. I subscribed to that old addage, those who know how and can, do...those who know how and can't, teach...but these guys couldn't do much of anything unless was purely a paper exercise...I can remember clearly several times making some kind of WTF face while the prof droned on....he'd say something like, you seem to take issue with that Mr SHR?...

I'd say....uh yeah....you ain't doing THAT on these old tired POS machines...hell even new they couldn't THAT...

He'd say Oh really now, well you just set that up like I said and we'll see....then the whole class would gather round...he'd check it all out...ahh ok we have this...this is good, see this?...that's how this is supposed to be...

Then the moment of truth with prof machinist at the switch ready to have at it...I'd usually take a step or so back...for dramatic impact....a few guys in the program all knew each other...they'd be back too if I was...then the real impact when prof would turn the machine on...engage feeds and crunch, stall, bust, launch or any combination of other metal mayhem catastrophies would happen...

That one particular time he made some excuses about the horsepower not being what it should have been....which would have only made his fail worse...

I remember saying under my breath...fuck this bullshit...another guy who was sort of school buddy looked at me like, "Help us man, help us" so I stayed and finished out that Manufacturing processes class, but it was one of my last ones...I got a few more stories just like that one, and better...but that was about ALL I got out of it...

THAT was MY college experience...

I'm a 19 year old college student and agree with this post 100%. If you don't mind, I will be copying and pasting this post into word, and sharing it with my entire family/friends.
