What Is Really Behind the Mass Shootings?

I'm not much of a philosopher but this is essential reading: America's Nervous Breakdown. I agree with the hypothesis that the collapse of Christianity is behind many of the issues in contemporary America.

I'd take it a step further: The Judeo-Christian ethic is essential for liberty and free enterprise to work properly. Today, we live in an era without shame. I've long argued that public company executive compensation is way too high. The same is true with some cases of essential drug pricing. Just because something can be done doesn't mean it should be done.

Free enterprise and liberty cannot work if everyone lives only for themselves. We need community and a feeling that we are something more than just ourselves.

And, as was published on Twitter yesterday:
Want to better yourself? Read a book. 

Additional Note: More essential reading published just a few hours ago.
