With the idiots out there "seeing" a gun everywhere, it is amazing that doesn't happen more often. Such as the lib seeing a bike rack carrier (long flat bar with holes in it) on the car trunk and calling the cops because "he has a machinegun strapped to his car!"

"He's got a camera! SHOOT!".

Erik Shaw sitting in his office and a cop pulls his gun, walks into the business, walks into his office and guns him down (Iowa City, IA),.

The guy who got "swatted" because he beat some other online gamers and they hired a guy to set him up. The SWAT team shows up, the guy answers the door in sweat pants and the sniper blows his head off because the sweat pants fell down.

Go on youtube, there are endless examples of stupid people. Like the guy who strapped on a shoulder cam, walks over next door to the party, goes up to the neighbor who goes "Hey man, what's up? Have a beer." The idiot, who was PO'ed about the parties, goes "I am in fear of my life." and guns the neighbor down.

Bottom line: Human nature is broken. The success of any society is dependent upon the willingness of its members to exercise self restraint and to combat the human inclination away from doing that which is right.

Bottom line 2.0: Those who successfully combat the worst in human nature do not make the news.

It is curious how it is obvious human nature to be broken and has been from the beginning, and yet one segment of society continues to believe we are evolving towards utopia. Heck, even hollywood movies which apparently take place hundreds of years in the future are still rife with the same basic human conflict.

You guys got it right. Just letting poeple run wild so that their basic instincts rule the day simply equals chaos.

As a simple example some of you have probably driven in countries where the traffic laws are not enforced. A two lane road becomes a 5-6 car wide free for all. Endless honking, fighting, poeple pissed off and traffic lights at intersections are ignored resulting in gridlock. Now apply the same lack of civility to other aspects of life and you have a society not governed by law, but by gangs and warlords.

We’ve all seen the “Oh, Evolve!” Bumper stickers? They truly believe that human nature can and will evolve into something better, if only they’re in control.

Society evolves, culture evolves, technology evolves; basic human nature does not evolve. At the most fundamental level it’s the same now as it was thousands of years ago. Take away the thin veneer of civilization, and you have chaos.

As we have seen recently in the PNW Blue Cesspools of Potland and Demokratik Peoples' Republik of Seattle.
I was going to say "Amerika under biden and the communist left, of which Portland and Seattle are just the beginning", but see your point.

Peace love and understanding are realllllly boring. It puts so-called news outlets out of work.
