What's the difference between a child soldier in, say, Africa and Adam Lanza?
While the child soldier in Africa is at least as heavily armed as Lanza, he's killed fewer people.
That's not intended to be a joke.
Since I'm usually interested in sarcasm as a means to, metaphorically, slap people who are in a panic I can ask this:
Since at least one group in Africa cites the bible as a source for fielding child soldiers, will those people scapegoating video games commission an equivalent investigation into the bible?
My point here, and in previous posts, is to point out that everyone is looking for a way forward; and yet, a large number (if not all) has no clue where we are. Which means that forward is an unknown, anonymous, and ultimately a blank metaphor for a map.
