    "And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works." - Bastiat

    "It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere." - Voltaire

    Well yes, but we have to take care to maintain the onramps to liberty. It's easy to get so advanced that we forget how much of a struggle we faced when first learning liberty. Imagine how much harder it is nowadays with all the social media mind-programming out there.

    The only reason the media would ever cover such atrocities is because they are rare, and thus newsworthy. Drive-by shootings are never given the news coverage that mass shootings are given because they are common and thus "boring".

    The only hope we may have is for the average person to be jaded by mass shooting incidents resulting in waning viewership (demand) and thus waning coverage (supply). This would rob would be shooters of a spotlight and, hopefully, lead to waning incidents.

    You would think that the pandemic would have already taken the air out of the shock value of such incidents though.
