You Should Consider Whether the Man who Made This Video Could Be Violent

My primary impression from the video is that man who made it is capable of violence. He’s under control; he’s not going to snap suddenly. But he is CAPABLE of violence if he decides to take action.

There are a great many men who are alienated, isolated, motivated to lash out, and yet self-controlled.

I wonder whether they will go to their graves with their violent potential forever hidden. That might be for the best.

And then again, the 21st century might see the catastrophic collapse of 20th-century nation-states, along with their politically correct ethics.

In that event, violent men might stand forth, choose targets without the commands issued by states, and enact violence on a personal level.

I doubt I will live to see it. Such prospects of real-world Mad Max barbarism are only exciting for young men.

If it does happen, I don’t think the violent men will be glamorous and sympathetic, like Mel Gibson in Mad Max. At best, the situation might resemble medieval Iceland.

If these alienated, violent men band together, the situation might collapse into a more efficient version of statism – which might have all the evils of our current nation-state arrangement, just more efficiently operated and more geographically localized.

    Might? Are you naive? It’s a given that they will.
