Waco, Oklahoma City, Columbine and Virginia Tech
by Anthony Gregory

"This week in April marks the fourteenth anniversary of the Waco massacre,
the eighth anniversary of Columbine, and, in years to come, the anniversary
of the largest mass shooting in American history -- the massacre at
Virginia Tech. It is also the twelfth anniversary of the Oklahoma City
bombing, which itself was carried out precisely two years after the Waco
standoff ended in a deadly conflagration. All civilized human beings see
such horrific acts of mass killing as unspeakably tragic. In the midst of
any such explosion of seemingly senseless violence, it is common to hear
questions as to how and why such a thing happened, so we can formulate
possible answers as to how such atrocities might not happen again, or at
least happen much less frequently than they do. Starting with the most
recent of these horrors, and moving backwards in time, it is worth
reflecting on the most commonly heard explanations for such violence."
