Why all the acts of terrible violence in the country?

I think we all ask why, when there are awful acts of violence in the country. I think I might have gotten a clue why they happen, tonight, after reading a couple of forums on one of the most popular message boards. In message, after message, after message, I see what I consider awful human behavior. Heart-less-ness, nastiness, unkindness to the nth degree, and I could go on and on and on.
In fact after reading that stuff, I found myself becoming really angry with my fellow man. Really, really angry!
There are so many people putting, or trying to put others down! It's not just a couple of people doing this---it's person after person, after person. Put the other person down. Try to show them up as dummies, or as stupid.
And then we wonder why there are so many atrocities going on all over the country. Doesn't it make sense that every so often there will be someone who can't take it anymore and will react in an inhuman way themselves?
In other words, does hatefulness beget hatefulness?

Shut your mouth, you are a fat, soft, wet funkhole.

That bull Oakley would sell your hind parts for a pack of cigarettes if he ever saw you at an interstate rest stop.

Y'all are a bunch of whiney little punks, I can't wait to fist you until my elbow disappears.

I agree that some people can be hateful and nasty, but this is nothing new. It certainly doesn't justify suicide, murder or violence, which weak or sick people do because they try to rationalize their feelings of emotional pain when they're confronted with feelings of humiliation or being wronged in some way. You can't change another person, but you can change how you react to negative behavior, and it's essential if you're to live a content and happy life.
