Can you blame culture for the actions of a deranged person?
When the culture's sitting on some of the highest per capita crime rates for a technological nation, you're damn right I can. We do a very shitty job of maintaining family structure and raising our kids under a watchful eye.
That crazy dude who shot 80 people in Norway last year........what was the per capita crime rate of his country?
You don't know how this guy was raised. I don't think you can create a culture that protects everyone from crazy people.
That's a data point. Look at the overall statistics. And, why aim for the low bar? Is that what you do with your life? I sure as hell don't. I try being better than everyone. I don't succeed, but that's where my goals are. If you're satisfied with your country to be in the bottom half of the planet, have at it, pal.
Overall, we do have serious problems here when it comes to respect, raising our kids, and our crime rates. Stories like this remind me of Columbine, which I happened to have lived about a third of a mile from when it happened, and my son presently goes there. Harris and Klebold's parents just weren't paying attention to their children. It wasn't the school's fault, it wasn't the other students' fault, it wasn't the cops fault, it wasn't anyone's fault but the parents. Plain and fucking simple.
