You know what i noticed.Nobody panics when things go "according to plan".Even if the plan is horrifying.In the civil war going on since last year in Syria, many civilians lost their life.People were being killed on streets.
Believe it or not more than 20,000 people died in the civil war.There were about 400 children who were sent to prison and were tortured there.
Nobody panics.Most don`t even bother to look about it in the news.Because its all part of the plan.
But if a mere dozen moviegoers from colarado get shot then everyone starts losing their mind.
So what possible logical reason could it be that we are shaken by the Colorado shooting but don`t give a shit about the massive Syrian civil war victims?
Answer is that we assume that such things can happen only in a country like Syria and that can never happen to us. But if 12 people get shot in a fun place like a cinema theater then we panic. We panic and start to assume that "this could happen to us too". So we are not really sad for those 12 people who got shot in colarado. We are worried about it because that could have happen to us while we were going to a theater too.
Ultimately we are all self-centered douchebags.
The Joker claps at our society`s hypocrisy.
