Englehart’s View by Bob Englehart
Let’s make it as bizarre as possible. I mean, why stop at having armed guards in schools. Let’s have them dress up and roam the halls as big lovable mascots. Let’s have Benny the Bear carry an assault rifle under his fury costume. How about Danny the Blue Dragon carrying an Uzi inside his lovable fat belly.
Life just gets more and more absurd on this planet and I know why. Overcrowding. That’s right, we’re rapidly approaching the tipping point. All this crazy killing is nature’s attempt at crowd control. We think we’re at the top of the food chain (I’ll discuss that later) and no other animal can annihilate us, so we have to annihilate each other. That’s pop wisdom.
I suspect about a billion people will have to kill each other with guns and bombs in order to even things out and take pressure off the Earth to provide sustenance for all these people, but guns and bombs won’t do it alone. Now, about that food chain.
We are not at the top. Viruses, bacteria, fungus and germs of all kinds are. There’s always a new virus brewing in the rural regions of China. That bug will have to kill another billion people because of a simple law of nature. It must always be in balance. It has no choice, no alternative. For every problem mankind solves, nature creates another. That’s the way it has always been. What to do? Armed guards in schools. Armed mascots. Armed teachers. Armed students. While we’re at it, give our body’s microscopic cells little tiny guns too.
