I presume someone's guilty of these murders. If you want an alternate scenario to the story as told (at least the main outline), it has a lot more moving parts than most of you seem to realize. So some questions:
- What's the motive? On behalf of which cause?
- Who's the crew? How might they pull it off?
- How are you going to get any evidence not provided for you by the corporate media or the cops?
- How are you going to deal with the 130-decibel noise and toxic bullshit over the whole thing being blasted out from Jonestown and the rest?
Some of you just can't see this in your moral universe, and neither can I. But the observation that millions of people might engage in mass murder out of misanthropy (against a given group or generally) if given the means is not at all foreign to me. A lot of people would murder strangers if all it took was pushing a button without consequences (like in the movie The Box, except there were consequences in the movie). First-person shooters and zombie films partly market to this, right?
And never mind all the acceptable forms of mass murder, where many such people find their outlet in real and not just fantasy activity.
For those contemplating/daydreaming about the unacceptable kinds of mass murder, only a very very small proportion of them need to have the motivation and competence and sickness to provide a steady supply of rampage killers. Also, while it's not the majority of people, there is an enormous culture fascinated with and sometimes celebrating serial killers and rampage murderers in this country (again, beyond and overlapping with the even larger culture of acceptable industrial mass murder, our heroes). It has so many forms and activities, it's like a fandom, it feeds into hundres of TV shows and movies.
Becoming one of these mass killers in real life is a form of celebrity, and now this guy goes into the pantheon as the current record holder, an inspiration to emulate to... almost no one. But only almost. The "ISIS" feed via Katz understands that well enough, so they-it issued their predictable claim of ownership and call for more.
So I find the idea of someone from a sociopathic milieu (such as spookdom) and under the influence of a psychopathic culture deciding to go out this way, especially now given the cultural contexts, not so outlandish at all. With or without a diagnosis of imminent death or delusions from a mental illness or, if you want, MK training. It only happens once or twice or three times a month in a population of hundreds of millions.
And 82, how old are you? 64 is generally pretty fucking robust nowadays. It's not like any of these expertises - carrying bags into a hotel room one or two at a time, planting mini cameras,spending a lot of money if you have it, purchasing guns at different shops, rehearsing at shooting ranges, etc. - are Olympic events. None of them taken in itself is illegal.
Again, we read things each in our own way. The brother totally convinces me. Both his sincere telling and the character armor he displays in the telling. Not because he's evil except sort of as a function of some of his society's values. It is how easily he conceives how his brother would have handled the details competently. The decision to do this confounds him utterly, as it confounds almost anyone, but the ability to do it does not. And recall, absolutely no one is forcing him to talk. He's come out to his driveway to speak all this openly and without fear of incrimination. Naively, perhaps.
I wish the interviewers had asked him about Stephen's work and business history, how he got rich besides the real estate management stuff they did together.
