I was thinking as to how does society react to situations like this… especially NZ - which i have read is a decent society and good people.
what kind of actions do the society need to take and in this case NZ society so that nobody feels like doing this abominable action any more …
In my view -
a. deterrent action like imprisonment ( alone ) etc…is not enough
b. there is a need to send a message to terrorists and that message must be something
un-conventional and not involve fear or pain
c. That beings us to love.
How about making that guy hug the families of all those affected and maybe thousands of New Zealanders -
maybe he will repent …
repentance will be the best deterrent
and that will be live streamed to the same channel he live streamed to while committing this barbaric act.
His friends and supporters have to be won over with love and ofcourse strong policy…actions on possession of guns.
I fail to understand why someone would need a semi-automatic gun ( or any gun ) in the first place ?
My thoughts might not be appreciated by all
i thought about this last evening too…
The pain that NZ will be going thru is felt my me too in terms of sadness.
These days no country in the world is safe from any form of terrorism and that includes my lovely India too.
However as a society we can think of new ways to reform…
because violent revenge doesnt take anyone anywhere…
I am not talking of state sponsored terrorism & similar forms but of actions like these which emanate from
lack of family feeling ( is the biggest bane of the western culture IMO )
lack of love
lack of compassion
lack of education
lack of humanity
Maybe the NZ justice system might read and consider this message…
I wish all NZ’s to grieve and heal as well.
But essentially continue to be the same lovely people you are… but with extra precautions and a no gun law.
