  •  There was no such thing as an American (3+ / 0-)

    ...or an American Culture, before the invention of the gun.

    Everything we own, everything we are today -- came from the threat of bullets hitting flesh. Weapons are how we make a living today, how we control the world's resources, a big part of our GDP. Americans have never been secure without guns -- and they have absolutely no history on earth before guns.

    Without judgement, this is the "genetic" signature of the American Culture.

    It's what it is. But it is not madness. It's adaptation.

    Denial is a drug.
