a few thoughts: - why is the word "terrorism" never used in referral to high school shootings. - typical for this time, where possession of the complete monopoly of violence by the state is more accepted than ever before, is the attack on random people. - it seems this time provokes in individuals a hatred against all other individuals, rather than just a group, a social stratum or a political party. the high school serial killer will kill anyone. anyone is his enemy. - mostly the murder of others is inspired by a desire for suicide. only, a suicide alone is not enough to express whatever it is the high school shooter wants to express. - fame is everything nowadays. the talentless resort to murder to obtain this most precious good.
