Then another insightful mind on the subject is Hans Magnus Enzenberger, who wrote 'Politics and Crime,' about how states 'justify' murder in the name of ideology or national interests,
which can be no more than the interests of big money [my words].
The famous psychotherapist John Bradshaw also wrote about the roots of violence as 'patriarchal pedagogy,' which stems from the authority of the state, educational institutions themselves, and abused children who become leaders and carry out the pedagogy
so it continues to infect a culture, a country, a nation, and the world.
Another important voice today is that of Jon Michael Turner, the ex-Marine who threw away his phoney medals [as can be viewed on utube] and exposed the murder of the state [the USA in this case], fomented by the same patriarchal pedagogy as was extant
in Nazi Germany and Romania and under Stalin as well, certainly it was the cause of the brutalization of America in that infamous slaughter of three million Vietnamese for the sake of ideology and
prompted by the adult children of abuse.
It is also no accident that those who have had insight into the roots
of violence in culture, have been Jewish people who witnessed or
lived through the time of the Holocaust. If Alice Miller were aalive today, she would be Center Stage talking about the roots of violence in relation to the latest school shootings, as well as the murderous acts of the state as witnessed by Jon Michael Turner.
The gun control debate is really only tertiary to the cause of these
psychopathological behaviors. The real cause lies within those who carry these things out, but more importantly, in the individual
abuse of these as children and in the cultural abuse of all of us at the hands of patriarchal pedagogy.
Well, OK, not your usual 'favorite hip hop artist' question, but in the small chance that someone with a curious mind might be reading,
I submit this inquiry for you to become aware of and consider.
