    I think you forgot to mention one more thing John. War.
    For the past 12 years this country has been engaged in a policy of wholesale slaughter against those in other countries. I could run through a whole list of reasons why which you've likely never heard of, but the reason that is sold to us is preservation of our safety and rights.

    Images of real war, a culture of warmongering and ideological worship of the military are just as culpable as any hollywood movie, which I'm not defending, but hey I sure do like the 1st amendment just as much as the second.

    You're god damn right liberals don't have the guts to confront ugly truths, neither do "conservatives". Yet all we can do is blame each other. [sad]

    A dialogue on the subject is worthwhile. As for untreated mental illness, a psychiatrist recently called Rush Limbaugh, a woman with 30 years experience in treating potentially violent patients. She noted that the lawyers of our day have often used the courts to get such patients from being committed for observation and needed treatment. She has seen this scenario played out over and over in her practice. Laws to protect the patient keep them from treatment and the result is often violence against their family members or others. That is one part of the equation. The other part, which most liberals are unable to grasp, involves the idea that some people are just evil, wicked, and cannot be treated for their psychosis. They are often quite smart, sometimes brilliant, and in their evil, will plan and execute mass murder. No psychological help will prevent them from doing evil. Lastly, and again the liberals will not even discuss it, is the prevalence of films by producers and directors like Quentin Tarrantino, and other despicable Hollywood types, who feed on the most violent content they can imagine. We, as a people, are being fed this daily violence as a national diet by a Hollywood industry without morals, character, or responsibility. We could also discuss violence against women in pornography, ambiguous values advance which blur and confuse the young with respect to issues of right and wrong. I do not think, as a conservative and a Christian evangelical, that the liberal media, the academics, or the leaders of our country have the moral courage to face the issue honestly, nor do they have the guts to even uncover the real reasons for our violent culture.
