Carl Gustav Jung, a colleague of Freud, introduced the idea of us sharing a "collective unconscious." It refers to a DNA of the mind that we somehow acquire from eons of past times. It is an interesting, but unprovable idea.

I would like to propose a collective conscious that we share based upon past and present programming. Surely, I can't believe I am the only person who looks cautiously around at various places trying to make sure no predator is present, having absolutely no clue what a predator looks like. The last one looked like a 15 year old boy.

Sitting in a Boca Raton park last Saturday morning while my granddaughter mindlessly enjoyed the carousel ride i couldn't help but be apprehensive. "What if some waco with a gun came along to do harm?" I wondered. I unconsciously reached for my holster, which was empty. Jewish and gun is often an oxymoron.

Should needless, unprovoked, and tragic violence continue in public spaces, many will be reaching for their holster and not all will be empty. At a time when we have come so far as a society, immersed in techno blessings and liberal leanings underscored by the Pope saying, "Who am I to judge?" we seem to be regressing so far in other areas.

I really hope we can stop the tide and move it in the opposite direction. If not, this Jew may just have to buy a gun!

Darn, should i have identified my religion on a blog? Once again, it is not paranoid to be paranoid these days

Bye for Now,
