Defining the USA vs. Mass Shootings

The United States of America currently has an unfiltered babyman in the Oval Office, one who repeatedly uses petty insults in attempts to discredit his opponents ( "a very low IQ individual, ever see her?"  - I'm sure he misplaces commas.)

Here is a perfect example of what we're talking about when we say White Patriarchy. Who else would think it's okay to talk like this??

The narrative was never meant for all white people. It got leaked when the tiny Kings realised their white servants and black slaves were getting chummy. Divide and Oppress. These days, several other theories are floated to explain how the War Between the States wasn't about Slavery.  We like the States' Rights Theory best - "Don't tell me how to live my life. You don't know me"  - but if you're in a certain demographic you feel obligated to tell other people how to live their lives. Obligated.

Typical Narcissist ploy: I never said that. You're taking it all wrong.  Thankfully there is a movement to properly educate those who value education.  If you apply honest political and economic theory to the facts of the Civil War, you will see it...unless you are a Narcissist. Someone with NPD is incapable of insight.

Think about the frustration of a young white male who's been raised to believe he's above those people and that gender, and then realises the world actually doesn't owe him anything? That he isn't going to be a tiny king one day? That his parents never built a plantation or company he would one day inherit? He didn't even know he was raised as a Narcissist. But at some point, it may become more important than anything that his peers know how special he is. 

He's disenfranchised, and it's uncomfortable. He will show everyone how he's misunderstood. By any means necessary.

Whether or not you believe in the narrative, stop teaching it. Look at what you're teaching, and see what narrative it fits.
