This is not entertainment. This is cold blooded murder of human beings and we are, or should be, better than that. It is my opinion that this should be removed and that we should disallow graphic images of murder just as rape and animal cruelty are not permitted.
Murders cannot be "produced" in the same way that harmful porn or dogfighting videos can. They can't do it over and over to sell to an audience of actual sick fucks. That's the important distinction I make.
Murder just ... happens. Sometimes on camera. Usually because of something highly personal. Posting it online after-the-fact doesn't change anything.
"No it keeps us from being desensitized to this shit."
I'll take the criticism that its not entertainment, but I do disagree that it should be removed.
I actually wish that mainstream media would not only air this in its fullness on their websites, but also the other slaughters done by ISIS and muslims all across the globe. Because shushing it or pretending it doesn't happen, is basically what they do, and that's how you end up with someone like this guy in the first place.
I think the social media platforms banning people so they have to go form their own echo chambers is a really bad idea.
In other words people need to see the real thing to shake their fake version of what it’s like. which is why war videos, murder videos, and accident videos actually help in a way. It shows how fucked up things really are and probably keeps people from putting themselves into those situations knowing the world is not a safe space and bad things do happen in real life.
There I made proper paragraphs... ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED
Mainstream media portrayals of events are for the most part propaganda. The bias viewpoint that pushes an agenda, or paints an action as something it isn’t. As in this case ‘it’s an act of terrorism” which it isn’t, it’s just murder. It seeks to influence popular thought on what a required perception needs to be. It’s a distraction of what actually is.
People post this stuff for entertainment, to be edgy, for some fleeting self validation. It spreads to conspiracy sites to further distract people with bullshit theories like false flag attacks.
What you are (again for the most part) left with is several narrow pointed, diluted, and ultimately worthless viewpoints arguing about which is correct. Further distraction, and the population forced to choose between several bias examples of the original event. Something snaps in someone’s head and shit like this happens, the cycle repeats. Nobody looks to the cause, because all that is portrayed are the symptoms.
Terrorism: "the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims."
If that wasn't terrorism then I don't know what is. Had he just snapped one day and spontaneously did that, it wouldn't be terrorism.
Civilians suffering in Venezuela as a direct result of economic and political sanctions instigated by The USA is terrorism
A proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia, Trump does a billion dollar arms deal in full knowledge the Saudi’s are bombing civilians = terrorism
Bono’s onesie picture being inflicted on the denizens of MZ, = terrorism
Did this guy attempt to coerce the NZ government? Beyond sending a manifesto what are the motives ? Reason? Aims ? What is this guys political agenda and how did he use coercion of the government to achieve those goals?
So far he has only been arrested and charged with murder, not terrorism. You would think that would be charge number 1.
So he's basically the human manifestation of Buzzfeed. Trash.
