    Have we forgotten how to control our emotions, making it so easy for a man to stab dozens of people?

    With the current attack of disabled people by a man who was mad because he was fired by the establishment, is there anything we as a society are doing wrong, allowing people to lash out uncontrollably because of their emotions? Or is this something we see more of today because we live on global social media?

    People have always killed other people. In my opinion there are a few different reasons why it seems to happen more now.
    1: When there is news anywhere in the world, it will reach us immediately, if something happened in the USA 150 years okay, people in Europe probably wouldn't here about it.
    2: There are a growing number of people, on the same surface. Problems are bound to arise.
    3: Modern society makes it more difficult to be yourself, and there is more stress because of the fast pace of life (mostly in cities but living gets faster and more hectic everywhere).
    4: People are bombarded by ads, media, songs, other people and so on day in, day out. Some people can't handle the constant barrage of opposing opinions and lifestyles.

    Social Justice Warriors are a better example of this phenomena.
    They believe that feelings determine morality, and the person who feels most strongly is the most right. This ironically means the most irrational or insane person wins over the calm rational person.
    There are several results:
    * the crazy person is not only tolerated in their rants and attacks but validated for it
    * people gain permission to act violently claiming that your expression of an opinion whether in word or signage equals attack on their pure selves (as long as they are a member of various official victim groups) - hence the death threats and physical assaults on Milo Yiannaopolis, Ben Shapiro, Laura Southern, Ayan Hirsi Ali by SJWs in the name of peace, love and tolerance - this is fascism in the name of feelings
    * if you can say you were triggered as if with PTSD, all acts become excusable, so rational people act irrational to gain permission for acts of vandalism and assault.
