re: Paul Kingsnorth is worth your time. - bayoubengals88
[quote]In all the time I have spent with people who live in genuinely rooted cultures - rooted in time, place and spirit - whether that be here in the remnants of rural Ireland, in indigenous communities in Mexico, Papua or India, on some of the last small farms in England, or simply talking to Maor...

Bring back the religious conformity of the 1940s-50s and a sense of belonging that comes with that. Most, if not all mass shooters, are nihilist who take nihilism to its logical conclusion. There is no [i]evil[/i] according to their view because they acknowledge no reason for existence itself. ...
