What a paradox. If people were ideal, we wouldn't need guns.

Well that is a very politically incorrect topic. Before we can do very much about the situation we have to realize that:

  1. Some people are much better/smarter than other people.
  2. Most of that difference is genetic.
  3. Despite the fact that the education industry is one of the biggest industries in the country, education technology is still in the stone age (it is not very useful).
