  1. The human capacity for evil is enormous. Did we not know that? Our capacity for love and creativity is enormous too. Sometimes we deny that too.

    Hatred flourishes when apparent certainties are crumbling. That can be when an old structure and culture is crumbling (political murders in the USA in the fifties and sixties, Europe after the First World War). It can be when there is just too much information, noise, change, confusion, diversity, hope, fear for many people to handle, so they turn to racism or to IS. These things are simple.

    But many people with hate in their hearts, in many countries, don’t have guns, because it would be illegal, and don’t have the contacts to get them. Saving lives is a matter of practicalities as well as of love.

    • Nicely thought out statement. Do you think the countries without guns ( the ones that are not illegal to own one such as England) have the mindset of settling disputes in the most non-violent way possible instead of resorting to taking a life? I mind eliminating the first, second, third response to situation with guns but really leaving that as a “last option?”
