That's what happened today. I did a 'referral post' in a community, called, humanitysucks back in 2016 - and someone liked it today.
The post was about something I called "The Flowertown Massacre", mostly about the tragic carnage of bees these days / those days. A post about a massacre. In a community about the downfall of humanity.
Maybe to 'liker' was random. But it could have been something else. I looked further... Maybe it was the owner of the now-defunct community, coming back to haunt. So, I looked her up, and her journal ended many years ago. Her 'interests' were things like vampires, and other gothy morbid stuff. What I found strange was that she lived in Gilroy, California - the site of the recent shooting.
Midget Carnage: count the bodies like sheep
Who knows if something was behind that. I imagine a young woman wounded by that tragedy, eventually looking up her deceased LJ community, for some kind of meaning or something. Just strange. Ironic.
That lead me to discover the book cherished by that shooter, "Might is Right" (1896). Here is precisely the opposite of everything I stand for. Some of you know how I have railed against the mean-world philosophy of might-makes-right. Which is easy to do for anyone with some kind of religious mythology, but not for some lone philosophical wolf such as myself.
That book was a twist on Nietzsche, similar to the one taken by Hitler), who was actually an admirable humanitarian. It's the same thing I noticed with other, e.g., my little brother: Map out wrongs in this world to clarify what is right, and some in your audience will sneak away and try out those very wrongs, in defiance, envy, or some private lust for power.
The book was another of those manic exaggerations of the whole Social Darwinism movement, (which itself was a misreading of Darwinian theory), such as lead to eugenics and NAZIism.
By the way, the shooter in Gilroy was not a conservative, or 'white nationalist', he was some kind of hedonist on a selfish rampage against religions and 'white twats', not just Hispanics. And he was half Iranian.
The shooter in Ohio was a Clinton, etc., supporter. One of his online profiles was purported to have been switched, after the shooting, to show his as Republican. There was no known racial motivation to his actions.
There were reports in Ohio, and in El Paso, of additional shooters, and I am have some confidence that this was true in El Paso. In both shootings, the modus operandi were similar, and there have been assertions that both shooters were Antifa freaks. That's all I care to say about mass shootings for now. Except, to charge that Trump is creating a diversion from these issues, by commuting Blagovjavich(sp?), might as well invite the charge that these shootings might have been themselves distractions towards nefarious purposes.
