It happened yesterday. That’s data. 49 people dead. Children dead. VIPs dead. Regular citizens of New Zealand dead. Data.

49 people dead. Children dead. VIPs dead. Regular citizens of New Zealand dead.

Data.

Who isn’t dead?
Whose manifesto is spreading around?
Who is gaining sympathy?

Your post is a reactionary response. A call to put it into historical context is a call to average out the life in statistical form.

Had this not happened, would you have made this post presenting your perspective?

1) EVENT
2) RESPONSE:
a) Response a
b) Response b
c) Response c

=====

You’re responding with a theory.
I’m responding with a theory.

A theory is an abstraction. It is a framework from within which to view a particular and place it in a category.

My prescription is explicit. Your prescription is implied by the act of stating your theory for others to like/dislike/comment further on.

You are participating.

======

a) Is it the intent of ALL readers of the manifesto to want to stop violent acts?

b) If not, what other intents may they have?

It is not I who is using ostrich logic.

=====

Do you both REALLY believe that over 80% of the manifesto readers are doing so to play “armchair psychologist”?

======

You are reacting to an event. You have chosen to present an argument – a side – for consideration.

No?

======

So you’re implying that this manifesto will be studied in thousands of schools for 60 years to come.

======

Oh, you’re just quibbling about my word choice.

No?

=====

You don’t like being referred to as a reactionary.
Correct?

=====

“Meh, these things happen” is proper historical context?

Sure. But is a balm.

Smooths over the rough edges of reality.

The predicate betrays your ontology.

“just a splash in an ocean of history.”

=====

I’m not arguing that you’re incorrect in the general.

You could make this all purpose statement at any number of events in world history and would be “a way” to contextualize the event.

=======

 

What you wrote is very well written and applicable to a large number of possible events that are of a similar nature, whenever they are found across human time.

 Now put yourself saying this just after any random historic massacre.Here is a list.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_rampage_killers

Current guy is on the list now:

 I don’t think the majority of readership are studying it to understand WHY.They know why as they already agree.His way of thinking is VERY common already. The manifesto is an inspiration piece. That is its intent and that is how it will mostly be utilized.
======
I’m not adverse to your position. It’s a fine position during non-eventful times.During eventful times, it carries another message entirely.
======
 It can’t be suppressed. He posted via Twitter, FB, 8chan, it was already shared and copied widely.
=====
 Until he actually *did it*, he was just another shitposting malcontent, indistinguishable.
=====
 The conclusion sets how the audience should receive the content:“is just a splash in the ocean of history.”
=====
 Not rare at all. Many are just ironic – ” for the memes” (go on Discord, iFunny, Instagram, 4chan, Facebook groups, Youtube). It’s part of the humor.But out of ever 100 who laugh for the shock value, a number actually believe it’s true.
======
 Example: MILLIONS of 4th-8th grade boys find “n-word pass” funny. K K K Roblox memes are standard fare.How many actually believe it?Probably not many at all when pressed.But some will.

======
  “Timothy McVeigh” is a hero/villain of the same group we see ourselves in.That we DON’T remember or take the time to even learn names shows how far removed we see “the them” from “the us”.
=====
 It’s not questionable at all. Maybe I hang around the wrong people too much, but guys writing down their “life’s beliefs” about “This is Me and How The World REALLY Works” are as common as stepping in dog shit at a park.
======
Can’t scrub stuff off the internet.

Responsible large sites will remove it but thousands of little sites and non-sites will have anything you ever once saw.

Sometimes it’s as easy as going to http://archive.org
