US moral and cultural decay at root of mass slaughters

The United States has lost its moral compass. A once Christian nation with indelible moral values drawn from the Holy Bible has  pursued a path towards moral degradation referred to in politically correct terms as cultural relativism.  Pushed to its natural limits, cultural relativism means no morality at all.  Come Sodom, come Gomorrah! Anything goes.

It should surprise no one that the Connecticut mass killer sprang from a dysfunctional family environment.  It should surprise no one that the 20-year old psychotic could bond with no one, feel for no one, and that no one cared to confront him, let alone report him out to relevant police authorities.

It should surprise no one, following the evil massacre of young innocents, that the media is obsessed with finding some mental illness as the root cause of the outburst. The only mental illness responsible for this outrage is that afflicting United States society as a whole: the abandonment of unambiguous moral rules and the willingness to explain everything in terms of financial constraints unjustly imposed on mental treatment resources.

“Like an iceberg, we only periodically see the psychotic manifestation, the tip of our shattered culture, but what lies just beneath the surface is a gigantic cultural cancer that is rotting America from within.  The ugly and dangerous truth is that we live in an embarrassing, politically correct culture that exalts and rejoices in the bizarre; aggressively promotes the ‘anything goes’ value system; and vilifies, condemns and mocks traditional societal values and customs at every opportunity.  We’ve embraced a culture of contempt that attacks the very institutions that make for a healthy and strong society and then we’re shocked when it spirals out of control. The only thing I’m shocked about is that anybody is shocked.” Ted Nugent, ‘Connecticut killings a result of moral decay’, The Washington Times, December 19, 2012

The fact that this message of truth emanates from an American rock ‘n’ roll activist, and not from President Barack Obama, says a great deal about how extensively the moral and cultural rot has made its way across the so-called educated elite in the United States.

    Charles, I have been at pains to get a point across, that Asperger’s is not the mental illness. This shooter was paranoid schizophrenia.

    People do need to learn to understand those with autism, whether it is in the lowest range or the highly functioning Asperger’s Syndrome.

    The reason that I say that is because one of the characteristics of an autistic happens to be the inability to socialize and communicate effectively. The worst case autistic child cannot communicate in a normal way but will respond to family. The highly functioning autistic can communicate with others but not in the social sense.

    If you have never watched the Big Bang Theory, I suggest that you have a look at a few episodes, and then you might understand more about people who have Asperger’s Syndrome because at least 2 of the character’s in that show display those characteristics such that they are recognizable. These are people who are nerds. They have a very high IQ. The shooter had a very high IQ and he was a nerd.

    The thing is that Asperger’s Syndrome is not a mental illness, but it can lead to other forms of mental illness if it is not harnessed the right way. If the person is allowed to withdraw from society, then he becomes even more remote, eventually leading to paranoid schizophrenia. Here is your mental illness!!

    According to more recent reports, the mother was worried because the shooter was doing things like trying to burn himself with a lighter. It is claimed that she was trying to have him committed to an institution and that he got angry. Anger is a feature of Asperger’s Syndrome but the reaction of going out and killing is not a feature.

    There have been other unverified rumours regarding an embrace of Satanism by the shooter. Now this is possible and would explain the complete and utter descent that created the scenario that led to slaughter.

    Perhaps we can call this the modern day “slaughter of the innocents”. After all, one of the worst ever massacres of children is described in the New Testament of the Bible, when Herod ordered the deaths of all children under the age of 2.

    Your point is well taken. I am sure that Asperger’s was not the driving force here. No doubt in part as a consequence of family breakdown the shooter became totally isolated and dangerous. The fact that he was not ratted out buy his mother or any other acquaintance tells us that his society was dysfunctional. I notice that the father is keeping a low profile.
