Arguing about what gender, race, age and eye colour is most responsible is avoiding the simple fact that too many kids are killed, too many partners are killed (mostly women killed by men) and there is a widespread acceptance of violence in our society that needs to be challenged.
No there isn’t Pete. No-one who thinks “accepts” violence. It’s simply that those who commit it, aren’t being dealt with appropriately. The fact those who commit it commit it, is not the fault of those who don’t, in any way. This is because everyone is responsible and only they are responsible for their own actions. No matter what their experiences in the past, they themselves and only they are responsible for those. You name me anyone who commits violence because of their experience and I will show you a hundred others who have had exactly similar experiences and who don’t commit violence.
The reason it just gets worse is because most of the people working in the field who are responsible for preventing it, think for some reason, that it IS that person’s circumstances which IS to blame and the only thing therefore to do, is ask the politicians to give them more money so their circumstances WILL change and they will then and only then, stop being violent.
Now this is fucking nuts on a gigantic scale. It’s mega-massive moroninity such as the world has never before experienced. It’s mind-bogglingly mental and yet here we are, this attitude really is a fact.
This is why violence only gets worse. I call it the Don Quixote strategy.
