Before their massacre at Columbine, the young killers spent hours desensitizing themselves from actual human suffering by killing in cyberspace. Now Columbia’s children can too — at the Air Show. While most players never cross that line in reality, the Army learned how to overcome our youths’ moral values and natural inclinations against killing human beings via computer games. Combining unquestioning participants on teams adds an invisible layer of peer pressure to kill Middle Easterners. Imagine how our technical sophistication allows our morally compromised children to practice killing a Muslim child’s father. The Pentagon spends millions to lure our children into participation in these unethical pre-emptive wars, where the only moral code allowed is from a “superior officer” making your moral decisions for you. Great family values, eh? Never mind that religious educators spent so much time trying to teach our kids that you must treat others the way you wish to be treated.
Air Show organizers collaborate in this moral subversion by wrapping it in a flag. They’re in denial about the moral corrosion that occurs when human beings kill one another. After all, they’re the same group that previously simulated napalm strikes for your entertainment pleasure despite world-wide revulsion that led to it being banned. And they only memorialize Americans, never the thousands of civilians killed, maimed and terrorized by planes and weapons parked on the tarmac. It’s as if these souls, which God created, aren’t worthy of mention because they weren’t Americans. May God forgive us all.
