(Arjun Walia) Shortly after the shooting in Florida, the same thing just happened in Maryland. Apparently, an armed student shot two other students at Great Mills High School. The shooter was eventually shot and pronounced dead, one male student is in stable condition, and another female student is in critical condition.

Unfortunately, almost everything that happens today in regards to war seems to be for economic/political purposes, but can we say the same thing for mass shootings?
The truth is, there could be several different explanations, from the violence-inducing effects of psychiatric medications, family violence, the influence of pop culture (music, movies, video games, etc.), government mind-control, false flag fabricated events and more.
It’s no secret now that global politics is a platform of mass corruption, not all, but mostly at the highest levels. The reasons for war seem to be created, prolonged, and capitalized on by those who wish to profit off of it, and establish their own global agenda across the entire planet. They use violence and fear, fear from events like 9/11, mass shootings and bombings.
There are many examples of this, from 9/11, to what happened in Syria (related article) and more in the decades prior, all across the globe, not only the Middle East. All of these have been examples of “false flag terrorism,” and rumours have been flying around questioning whether or not these mass shootings that are taking place in the United States are also “false flag” in nature, in order to justify disarming the entire country.
Bottom line, the statistics behind guns in the United States is alarming. And something needs to be done. What that something is, however, is something nobody is talking about, and that’s a change within. All we see is more violence, and more reasons to justify actions that create even more conflict and divide between people, like arming teachers in the United States, or disarming everybody.
I agree that guns shouldn’t exist, but if you’re going to take them away from the citizenry, they should also be taken away from law enforcement officials, government, and military.
At the end of the day, it boils down to individual and collective consciousness. Just imagine a planet full of people who absolutely refuse to engage in any type of violence, that’s exactly what we need on this planet.
Below is a tweet from the Governor of Maryland regarding the recent event:
A Heightened National Security State?
As hinted at above, events like school shootings like this one, the one in Florida, and countless others, are similar to global terrorism and have lead to a culture of fear. Fear creates conflict and disagreement, and is also used by the global elite to justify actions that continue to take away human rights. It also justifies the mass surveillance programs used by multiple agencies on their own citizenry.
For years, our rights have slowly been taken away, and a most recent example of this would be the fake news epidemic and the internet censorship that’s followed. Instead of letting people make up their own minds and examine sources for themselves, government authorities are now telling people what is real and what isn’t, and actually limiting their access to free and open information.
American ruling elite’s ideology is and has been neoliberalism and neoconservatism.
As far as gun control, that right was granted to citizens when the government was formed, it was formed to oust the current ‘government’ at the time that was really pulling the strings, and the main reason for the right to bear arms was to protect the citizenry against an unruly government.
“Unlike traditional liberalism and conservatism, neoliberalism and neoconservatism are not opposites. Neoliberalism is just another name for transnational globalization, while neoconservatism is nothing other than the U.S.-dominated global empire project. They work together, two inhuman, anti-human processes that ensure a tiny minority of people control and own all the water, minerals, drugs, GM foods, and everything else worth owning in this world.” –Richard Dolan
This has been a view commonly expressed by multiple ‘world leaders’ outside the realm of American politics. Here’s an example from Putin, who called out the “imaginary” and “mythical” threats the global elite are using to push forth their agenda. He called out the sarin gas attack in Syria as being a false flag, here’s a video of American journalist Ben Swann doing the same.
The point is, there is a lot of deception in our world and to think there is none with regards to these mass shootings would be naive. This is why figures like Steven Segal aren’t afraid to go on television and express these exact beliefs, that these events are all manufactured and set up by a ‘higher power,’ or the deep state.
The Bigger Picture
So, what’s the solution to all of these issues? The same thing it’s always been, the people. A human being is pulling the trigger, and therefore the only thing that can stop it is for that individual, him or herself, to have a shift in consciousness or a change in perception. People need more attention and help.
Secondly, we need to overthrow our government and it seems we’re currently in the process of doing so.
For the past few decades, political parties have not existed to secure the will of the people. Theodore Roosevelt, former President of the United States, was another among many who tried to warn us that both parties have strayed from their original purpose:
From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare, they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government, owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people (source).
What else can we do? Question, be skeptical, investigate, and don’t be afraid to share an opinion that goes against the grain. It seems we’re systematically being trained to be offended by everything these days, including an opinion/explanation that differs from the mainstream.
“The problem of fake news isn’t solved by hoping for a referee. But rather because we as participants — we as citizens, we as users of these services — help each other. We talk, and we share, and we point out what is fake, we point out what is true. The answer to bad speech is not censorship. The answer to bad speech is more speech. We have to spread the idea that critical thinking matters now more than ever.” – Edward Snowden
Obviously, the only solution to be proposed from all these mass shootings is gun control, but it seems to be a much deeper issue than that. At the end of the day, you’re not going to pull a trigger (I hope), no matter what, and neither am I, and the more people out there like us, the better. If human consciousness was where it could be, there wouldn’t really be a debate with regards to bearing arms, it would be completely off the table.
The solution here is not gun control, because at the end of the day, the same problems we have now will simply continue to manifest in a different form. I am not an advocate for gun control, and I’m not an advocate for our right to bear arms either. Sure, perhaps more lives would be saved, but guns aren’t the real underlying problem, it’s our level of human consciousness.

Arjun Walia: I joined the CE team in 2010 shortly after finishing university and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since 🙂 There are many things happening on the planet that don’t resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It’s been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation. So stay tuned 🙂 [email protected]
