Before It's Too Late!
As we try to cope with the on-going grief of one more school, church, theater, military base shooting, it feels like it's a loosing battle.   More and more shooters with many different motives: racism, jihad, revenge, schizophrenia and more. As a social scientist you are always looking for the thread that runs through all the events. Guns are a common thread that runs through all of these events. Though I support better gun control in the US, by the time weapons are involved we are already in deep trouble.
When a gun is in the perpetrators hands they have already made a decision to do harm to others, often for reasons that make no sense to a rational person.
So what are the other threads that we may have more immediate control over? The other thread that runs through these tragedies is that the shooters were considered "loners". Even our military is baffled by how to defend against the "lone wolf" terrorist. So I propose a radical notion preventing the lone wolf. As the analysis comes in on all the events we always hear that people knew the person was isolated, troubled, excluded.
What we do about this observation of isolation is usually nothing.
I propose to you that we have become isolated and alone in our own neighborhoods and towns. We have just moved to California and moved into a very established old neighborhood.   As we were moving in people stopped to talk to us and welcome us to the neighborhood they brought us food and an orchid. I joked to Susan that this was so rare that I was a bit freaked out by it. We had more human contact and warmth in the first week in Thousand Oaks than 19 years in the gated community we lived in Colorado. These simple acts of reaching out completely changed my perception of California. I had forgotten what having a real neighbor was like!
One of the main recruiting tactics of ISIS is to offer loners a "purpose" and a place to "belong". Two of Maslow's elements in his hierarchy of needs. One of the more surprising aspects of the 911 terrorists was that so many were financially successful in their culture. They weren't desperate economically as we might imagine. They were looking for a place to make a difference. I warn you that ISIS is not a band of mercenaries. They don't offer money they offer mission. Something far more powerful than money! If people feel powerless and alone in "normal" society they are a ripe prospect for ISIS or radical hate groups like the KKK.
A recovering addict friend of mine says no 4-year-old wakes up and says "I want to be a junkie when I grow up!" A whole bunch of things have to happen to make drug addiction seem like the best option.   I believe these individuals who commit these horrific acts didn't say when they were 4 years old "I want to grow up to be a domestic terrorist" Many things have to happen. I believe that one of those things is being left out.
I am not naïve enough to think that this is the only thing we need to do to stop senseless violence. I do believe though, that this is the only thing, each of us can act on everyday. One of my clients spent a little more time with the "odd" kid in his teen group at church and found out he was headed toward a very dark place. Sometimes when we take the time to connect, we have done our job. Other times we find out that the person in question is beyond our abilities to help. Then we must act. We need to get them to mental health centers, school administrations, the police and who ever can intervene before it's too late.
Virtually every perpetrator has sent up red flags of their intent LONG before the ultimate crime. But we were too busy, it was not our problem or there is nothing we can do. Those three attitudes will guarantee more deaths at the hands of lone wolves. Say hello, warn those in power, and include the excluded. Include and tolerate the "odd" kids so we don't have to watch them on the evening news 10 years later.
As always we invite your comments.
