The blog post in the previous boost is worth reading.

@22 that belongs in the same category as the rumor I read that, left to their own devices, most people will shoot in the air – we actively train people to shoot to kill, to desensitize them to the carnage. I bet it’s also easier to do with kids which is why we like to take them young.
I guess that’s also why militias work best if we all partake of the fruits of our labour – it’s harder for near-feudal lords to command loyalty. Only then is it truly us vs them.

@22 and I say this after having heard the shots ring out over the city for a few days now as the militia army is sending young men to the shooting ranges to prove that they can still hit their targets.
