Lyndon LaRouche Clears The Tucson Incident Up For All Of Us

The recent events in Tuscon, Arizona have prompted many to present ridiculous kinetic arguments in a search for what "set off" the shooter. In reality, there is no simplistic point-to-point explanation for what occurred. There is only the explanation that the events of that day were a singular expression of a much more general cultural trend, which is connected to the last several decades of cultural and economic decline in the United States and the world. A decline which is now finding its lawful expression in a generation of youth with no sense of a viable future for the human species. A generation plagued by a vicious and pervasive existentialism, in complete philosophical agreement with the hedonistic and anti-human purposelessness of "market economics." -Lyndon LaRouche

Yes, Lyndon, I am certain that Jared Loughner was thinking about "pervasive existentialism" in the moments leading up to the shooting. What other explanation could there be? His internet posting about currency was not only brilliant, but it made sense. I think he was also thinking about hedonism and market economics. I mean, Loughner made a lot of sense. I think, as he was running from his parent's house with a bag full of ammunition, Loughner said, "It's the damn free market that has led me to this! Check my numbers! Check my non-sensical list of numbers that mean nothing to anyone and my free thinking posts about non-sensical gibberish!"

Yes, it was deregulation of the banking system that led to this shooting. It could not have been schizophrenia, access to guns with multiple rounds, or a broken system that allows such individuals to purchase an arsenal of weaponry. It couldn't also be the inability of Loughner's poor tortured parents who were unable to get him the help he needed to stop this event. If only Loughner's father had been an Olympic sprinter as he launched himself out the front door chasing his mentally ill son down the street.

We have indeed reached a point, as you say, Mr. LaRouche, "no sense of a viable future for the human species." Well, actually, we have reached a point where we see there is actually no viable future for the content of your own non-sensical rants, Mr. LaRouche. -Alison Whiteman

Often, in the brief seconds before I shoot somebody, I am plagued by the thought that I am solely responsible for giving my own life meaning and for living that life passionately and sincerely, in spite of many existential obstacles and distractions, including despair, angst, absurdity, alienation, and boredom. Mostly boredom, which is what LaRouchne represents for me.
