I like to rock the boat a bit, hoping that people will break away from the confines of the left/right media paradigm that controls so much of our thinking. Sometimes, this approach can get you into trouble, as certain beliefs permeate the public consciousness, and people have their aspirations wrapped up in the idea those beliefs will bring change. A good example is the topic I discussed in last week’s article concerning the gun control and mental health argument. The political right (and I don’t mean the politicians) heavily invests in the mental health argument against the left’s continued push for gun control. It seems to make sense because a person must be suffering from a behavioral disorder to be driven to commit mass murder.
