The Death of Reverence is not a Metaphor.
I am sick of mourning after the fact. It’s time to address the social disease that leads to these things. We as a society have created our monsters, and we have the hilarious temerity to blame it on guns. Culture cannot make comedy out of every reverent thing and not expect reverence, as a human entity, to die. Where there is no reverence, where there is nothing sacred, there is no safeguard for the human animals that walk among us.
Shall I sum it up? “Family Guy” has taught us that dead children are funny. Humanity learned the lesson.
I wouldn’t suggest you watch this, but it makes my point. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iF77p6-A5RM
