We ask, “Why would a young man from a materially comfortable home walk into a school and murder 20 children?” The better question might be, “Why don’t more young men do it?”
More young men who don’t know what it means to be a man, and thus don’t know how to become one. More young men who have no religious or ethical beliefs that make honor and sacrifice attractive. More young men who have no real political power, in a political system in which only the obscenely wealthy have real political power, and thus no real control over their future.
What would give them a will to live, to look out for and protect the weak people around them? A million-dollar home? Another cool video game? The next mindless Hollywood blockbuster?
