The problem with American politics
Re: Trump calls for arming teachers
The problem is that American politics is subject to open bribery and the N.R.A. is a major donor during campaigning. Same reason Washington will always support Israel and Saudi regardless how many war crimes they commit.
Truth is, the oligarchs pulling the strings do not care about the victims of mass shootings any more than they care about the millions who have died as a result of American-backed wars.
In fact, a violent society is precisely what they want in order to achieve their objective of world hegemony.
The desensitization process and glorification of war begins early with TV, film and video war-games, and is an ongoing process throughout the average American’s life, as they spend more time in front of a screen, by far, than they do in the education system.
Mass shootings are a by-product of America’s warmongering ideology.
