It's not an exclusively white thing but race is unquestionably a factor for a lot of it.
There seems to just be a total lack of value of life for these people it’s bizarre. It’s easier to understand in younger folk who haven’t really experienced life yet but I don’t get how grown adults who have their own kids, experienced death etc can still have no care in the world when carrying about shotguns and the likes.

I find it mental Americans are just sound with murdering somebody in self defence at the best of times. There doesn’t seem to be any thought towards the fact 3 guys should be able to de-escalate a situation even if the guy was kicking off without having to shoot him, as if somebody just looks at you funny it gives you the right to take the most extreme measure in defence.

Having access to weapons is the biggest problem. It's too easy to just grab a gun out of fear or rage and before you know it you've killed someone. You don't even need to be a maniac just feart or angry enough to grab a gun.

It's more that they devalue the worth of what they'd see as the out-groups (minorities, LGBTQ+, leftists, immigrants etc.) while wishing to save the in-groups (whites, Christians, conservatives) the law binds but does not protect the out-groups while it protects but does not bind the in-groups. See how blatantly the right-wing goons get away with things in public that would guarantee a bullet to anyone else.

I think another element is that in America the perception is that to be poor is to be a failure, never mind the litany of reasons for poverty. You'll get a lot of people who'll blame their struggles on those same out-groups rather than question the effects of 40+ years of rampant neoliberalism. Basically, they're angry that their lives are terrible and desperate to blame someone for their ills.

I'm starting to think you just make shit up. 
One minute you're eating whole tubs of ice cream and talking n french, the next you're fighting folk and going on strike.

It's quite telling that, to Terry,
  • Eating ice cream
  • Exercising
  • Speaking a foreign language
  • Working

together constitutes a fantasy life, worthy of incredulity.
