I haven't spent much time trying to understand the madman who killed people in Santa Barbara. But I can already tell that he doesn't really fit into our normal stereotypes of people. Crazed murderers usually don't.
Trying to infer what any aspect of American culture is really like, by studying a lunatic manifesto, is poor procedure.
It's better not to leap
to broad conclusions
from studying a creep
and his delusions.
