Something popped up on my news feed today.
I absolutely loathe it. My predictions will come to bear, damnit. Call me mother-efin Nostradamus.
Now, watch this sword-fight from CNN between the hunky Indian doctor (excuse the oxymoron), Sanjay Gupta, and the great queer hope, Anderson Cooper.
Essentially, the dueling nimrods are trying to justify the next stage of our burgeoning cultural hysteraucracy by explaining away the oppressive wonders of modern medical and scientific technology. They drip ladles of conjoined syrup on their garbage, but ultimately, their corrupt repertoire can be whittled down to the following paraphrase:
“Yeah, it sucks, but we should use modern science and medicine, when at all possible, to pigeonhole the strange and weird children into a predictable and visible Mass Murderer Track, because you know…it is the only way. We must prevent future carnage. Even if we err on the side of caution at least we have saved five million lives. (A synchronized pat on the back ensues).
And as if this guilt-ridden relinquishment of human autonomy hashed out by Biff and Nripa wasn’t extreme enough, the accompanying story, an alarming story, really, that details the freaky endeavors of so-called scientists at the University of Connecticut who have been enlisted by the Connecticut state government health nannies to deconstruct the DNA of dead mass murderer, Adam Lanza.
I hate, despise, this story because it demonstrates how desperately modern society feels compelled to account for all loose ends while simultaneously buttoning down all the hatches. The modern psyche is incapable of digesting the unknown, the unknowable, the unpredictable. I’ve seen this dynamic at work in younger generations. They are repulsed by ambiguity.
This is the result of technological advances which have slowly trained our monkeyhood that control and comprehension can be automated and displace our inborn evolved “weakness.”
One day, we will predict who the killers are among us.
But you know what?
Human ingenuity is formidable, dangerously so. It will always find a way to enter a room uninvited.
