I understand this through knowing the powerlessness of living in poverty as a single parent and raising teenagers alone. My personal experience is not empirical information, but I think it applies to the larger problem. I think fathers are very important to families, but our industrial society took them out of the family, and too few became good husbands and fathers since the beginning of the industrial age. Come on, industries treated humans like work animals. Autocratic industry was not good for families that had to accept the autocratic way of life and teach their children to please the industrialist and ignore the family.

I recall my youth in South California and hold an impression of life in low-income areas where a lack of a good family life is apt to lead to teens joining gangs and the way to get status in the gang is anti-social behavior. Especially young males are biologically risk takers. The young females are also attracted to this risk-taking behavior but are more likely to attempt to stop a fight than start one. What is happening here is very primitive and in the past played a positive role in our survival. However, in modern cities, today this not good survival behavior.

Why not focus on too much sugar? Junk food? Lack of Vitamin C?? Maybe that will be their next strategy?
Don't bother looking at gun violence in other countries. HOW do they manage it? We aren't interested in what has been PROVEN--statistics--facts. The only solution is MORE GUNS.
I thought we agreed it is important to be respectful. What is happening here?

We have an amoral society and Jefferson and both Roosevelts would judge something is seriously with having an amoral society. Now add hormones and depression to that, and we are in trouble.

Having a rape culture or a gun culture and a media that caters to the young male desire for excitement, is perhaps not as a good for society as education for the humanities, but where is your reasoning?

The leftists will not address the single mother plague as it is a direct result of the great society and to recognize the epic failure of the great society would be to acknowledge a fundamental flaw in american leftism itself.

Which is the lie?
7 or the 19 mass shooters listed were from fatherless families OR ALL were from fatherless families?
Thanks from RNG, Lyzza and Clara007

You want the issue actually ADDRESSED or do you just want to bitch and moan about it and blame it on liberals?
