The atomization of violence
Ok when was the last mass-shooting or terrorist attack committed by westerners (besides the Irish) that involved more than 2 people?  We have become so atomized that group violence no longer happens.  Lone Wolf attacks are not new of course but that's the only thing that's happening now.
The oddity of the mass-shooting is the scale of the carnage.
The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated Communist  but instead the people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists -- Hannah Arendt.
