The answer is always better housing

Why not control guns?

We can’t control guns as there are far too many of them to control, and 3D printing exists. Pass all the missing laws. We still don’t control guns.

Why mass shootings happen?

Men are not well, the environment has been sick for a while.

You mean wealth inequality?

Yes. It is at its worse in 50 years.

There’s wealth inequality everywhere.

Trust me when I say as a man who’s lived on three different continents, that American wealth inequality is #1 in democracies by far. Quick reminder that minimum wage in Texas is $7.25/hr and that gas is $5-$6 these days. Meanwhile in Europe or Asia, folks have been getting 80% if not 100% of their salaries since the start of the New Plague.

So what is it, is it our culture?

Yes, in part. America has been on that violent vibe *checks notes* for a while.

Is it our entertainment?

Yes, in part. Entertainment is part of our environment and our entertainment is full of violence. It cannot help, in both sense of the term.

But they play ultra violent games/movies/music outside of the US too!

They have safety nets. We used to have one, cheap gas. They don’t have to hustle like crazy to stay off the streets like people in America. The compounding effects of a violent reality+violent culture divided by this doesn’t have to be insane like that and supercharged with misinformation, are making people snap.

Should we ban violence in entertainment?

That’s not how it works: entertainment is a byproduct of our society, not the cause. To change entertainment, we need to change society first.


By redistributing wealth properly, fairly.


No, those don’t work. All companies and politicians have secured ways to never have to deal with that, for decades. They have a plethora of ways to avoid them. It’s over.


No, corruption.

Guaranteed Income?

Yessir, that’s a start.

People will get lazy.

I’d rather have that than kids getting killed by another kid, first of all, and then there are tons of people who will still do what they do, only with less anxiety, which is the goal. Don’t worry about laziness at all.

Why do you want to empower people with money? They will buy guns!

People don’t want to shoot others to death like that. You need absolute desperation and if you have money and a decent gig to cover your needs and a guaranteed good & honest life, why would you go on a killing spree? To get killed? Okay, not a great idea is it?

Right, but how do you want people to be housed? How would they stay calm?

Well, most human needs are simple to solve. Good housing, which means inexpensive and healthy, is a solved problem. So if you are in a healthy home with healthy food, and that it looks like it will never end, you don’t get mad and angry like that.

Huh. I guess. But how do we FINANCE this???

With money? Look Mr. Musk is about to buy a social network for $44B. If you divide that amount by the population of the US (326M), that’s $134,969 each.

Maybe that’s a good down payment for a house. Maybe that’s actually enough to 3D-print a whole house and “run” it. And that’s just money that is supposed to buy a gigantic pile of toxic comments in an app.

Money is what we want it to do. We have plenty of money. Far too much, apparently –inflation. Well, let’s build a future of folks growing up in optimal conditions that will allow them to behave properly. /insert priceless joke

But politically though?? How do we get everyone on board?

I mean if the now is not enough to get everyone onboard to correct the course of this country a least a little bit, I don’t know what is. But y’all keep using pettiness and ugly, low level battles to stay away from doing the real things. I’m telling you, this is all possible now. Postpone Mars, Earth. Now.

You said earlier that men are not well, how healthy housing is helping with that?

I mean by default it does help everyone. Men in America have no choice but run, and keep running. There’s almost zero contemplation time in their lives, especially 2000s youth, glued to screens. Questioning and independence are a good combo. Healthy housing would provide time for men to unlearn and unpack a whole lot of things, and for young men to learn from that, and for young kids to understand that the future will be comprehensive.

It is worth iterating on.
