> “But this self-destruction cannot take the form of your bog-standard suicide, because suicide is destigmatized and excused and suicides are pitied. No, the destruction of the self must come at the tail end of a grand epic of self-denial so that the self may be actualized…”
Yet it is true in some respects, such as the standard American Aryan shooting. What all Americans lack is the sense of collectivism, of party work towards a clear goal. Moreover, Westerners constantly think like idealists – violence is always and absolutely “evil” because the Galilean Jew told them so. They do not arrive at conclusions rationally. It’s a mad playground of “good” and “evil” for them, not a material fight.
