Have we learned nothing? Don’t bother answering. It’s a rhetorical question, and a dreary one. After two years of panic and subjecting ourselves to “solutions” to solve a crisis invented by scientists, of course we have learned nothing, and likely will continue learning nothing at a rapider and rapider pace.
With another school shooting comes calls, not for solving the problems that cause the shootings, but calls for arming teachers, installing open armed guards, installing secret armed guards, of locking kids inside schools, of scanning all who enter and leave, of spying on kids once they’re locked inside, of screening all kids to see who might be a danger.
Hey, if it saves just one life—Safety First!
These two slogans are perfect encapsulations of our fear, and fear is the impetus to tyranny. Everybody knows this, but the pain caused by our fear is stronger than our need for liberty. Fear makes us stupid. No “He that findeth his life, shall lose it” for us. We demand protection!
Safety First! is based on a truth, but ends in a lie. The truth is that the “solutions” devised by Experts might save a life, and the absence of these “solutions” might lead to death or injury. And so they might. But these are trivial logical truths, they apply to any “solution” that can be imagined, and they say nothing about the likelihood of any of them.
The If It Saves One Life Fallacy is insane. It is insane because it gives no thought to the costs of maybe saving that one life. We may indeed save that one life, but at the expense of how many other lives, livelihoods, minds, souls? We never ask. It’s never considered. There are no costs not worth paying, no tyranny not worth enduring, for the promised chance of saving that one life.
In the end, the life may or may not be saved, but we are left with the tyranny of the “solutions”, even after the threat has passed. Ask your nearest TSA agent if this is true. That is, if you haven’t yet been entered on the “No Fly list” as a threat to “our” democracy.
It is a horrible, sickening truth that these kids were murdered. By, this time, a boy who was told by Experts he was a girl. Our reaction, which is proper, is that we must do anything we can to prevent more slaughterhouses like this, but while also sparing the feelings of those responsible for creating the situation, which is nuts.
We are like a doctor who is forbidden to treat the disease, or to even name it. We must only attend only to the symptoms, and prescribe a course of treatment that allows the disease to fester and increase.
Can you imagine—try!—a purple-haired gender-fluid let-me-tell-you-what-sex-acts-I-enjoy-most “educator” given a gun and told to “protect” the kiddies with it? Maybe her specialty is critical race theory, and her gun is in her desk. Which the students, who have been taught to hate each other, know.
Or maybe the worst happens and an attack happens at her school. Who’s she going to shoot? The kids? Herself? The floor? The answer is: none of the above. She forgot about the safety (that irony would be lost).
Or you, dad, can’t come in to the school right now. Not only did you forget your electronic school pass, which you must carry every time you come near school grounds. but today’s lesson is on what drugs to take to switch genders. And the teachers have determined you might be a threat.
Slippery slope, did you say? You mean how the woke promises something won’t happen, just before demanding it does?
I just had a 4-hour meeting with parents whose school was socially transitioning their daughter for months without their knowledge.
Their estimate is about 45 kids are transitioning. Almost all of them are girls, mostly in middle school.

Giving in to fear, and not attacking the root causes, would only strengthen the State’s case that it, with its army of Experts, knows what’s best for your children. The State’s children, really. It would lead to further federalization because of our demanding Equality. After all, why shouldn’t the State take full responsibility from birth to raise kids according to the very best scientific formulas? These kids won’t be “racists”! They won’t be sexual bigots!
Never mind that, because once guns are removed from citizens and can only legally be found in the hands of regime employees, we can be sure the kids will be kept perfectly safe in the armed, guarded, sealed enclaves!
Well, unless the attacker uses knives, like they do in merrie olde England. And don’t forget the police have their own Safety First! protocols to follow. They wouldn’t want any of themselves to get hurt. And the murderer has rights too, you know.
Now I don’t want the causes to get lost. Our regular contributor physician Robert Yoho has article on some of these root causes: “Antidepressants are the root cause of mass shootings“. These drugs are given to kids, among others, who are told they are the “wrong” sex.
Here are some snippet’s from Yoho’s article, which you should read:
David Carmichael took Paxil for two periods of several months each and felt suicidal each time. His doctor advised him that increasing his dose would decrease his stress. When he did, he went from suicidal to homicidal and killed his 11-year-old son…
SSRIstories.org has about 5000 first-hand news stories about situations like these….
“Prozac is not addictive,” according to the package label written by the manufacturer. True, there are no opioid-type withdrawals. However, after discontinuation, severe anxiety and depression are common. Other issues include suicide, feeling “electric shocks,” and tardive dyskinesia (TD), which is often manifest by continuous mouth movements. The drug companies claim most of this is because of the depressed state itself, rather than medication effects…
SSRIs cause substantial harm. A 2017 literature review of randomized controlled trials in Frontiers in Psychiatry said these drugs are ineffective and damaging. It linked them to osteoporosis and movement disorders, including akathisia and tardive dyskinesia. They may double the risks of miscarriage and congenital disabilities. But physicians use them off-label for pregnant women and during breastfeeding. Expectant mothers get severe withdrawal symptoms just like anyone else….
In the first nine years of Prozac’s use, between 1988 and 1996, there were 39,000 FDA complaints, a record for any drug. This included reports of suicide, psychosis, abnormal thinking, and sexual dysfunction. Many patients taking the medication have sexual difficulties, are “emotionally numb,” and have “reduced positive feelings.” In October 2004, the FDA introduced a written warning about suicide in children and adolescents treated with SSRIs. The agency extended this in 2006 to include young adults up to age 25.
