Mark Steyn on the recent school shooting in Florida

February 20, 2018

This is, I think, a quite perceptive take on the Parkland tragedy in Florida by Mark Steyn.  In a column he wrote that can be read here, he also said: “The decline of organized religion, the rise of ersatz substitutes, the collapse of the family, the spread of mass media, the expansion of education, its descent into social engineering, the epidemic of over-medication, the absence of men, the metastasization of narcissism and the worship of the self… Maybe we could have weathered two or three of these, but, as I’ve said before, we changed too much too fast – and somewhere in the void a particular combination of factors incubated the depressingly similar young men who gun down their fellow pupils.”  This sums it up well, and also shows why this is not something that can be fixed easily.
