Getting Beyond Trump Is To Blame For The Mass Shootings
We can scapegoat Trump for the mass shootings – I am an expert on understanding scapegoating as a Government Gang Stalking Target for over a decade/http://www.StopGangStalkingPolice.com – or we can use a systems approach to get at the root of the problem.
A systems approach might take a commission to look at all the constituent parts of the problem rather than making politically expedient accusations.
A systems approach wouldn’t take assumptions as facts, without examining them. A System Thinker wouldn’t focus on any one part of the system, realizing it is the interactions of the constituent parts that often give us the result we don’t want.
In the heat of emotion, we often jump to treat the symptoms of the problem rather than underlying problems which are much harder to discern.
Symptomatic solutions are quick – let’s call Congress back into session right now or let’s just deal with domestic terrorism as we deal with foreign terrorism. Symptomatic solutions frequently generate other serious problems – like living in a less free society.
The corrective of systems thinkers often involves a longer term orientation.
Linear Thinkers like Beto O’Rouke and Cory Booker often assume cause and effect – Trump’s speech caused the El Paso shooting. Systems Thinkers know today’s problems are often caused by yesterday’s solutions. Linear Thinkers often do things in the short term that bring long term harm.
When you don’t address the real underlying problems, in a few years the problem often returns in a more virulent form.
Linear Thinkers focus on events, not processes. System Thinkers try to see the deeper patterns. They believe the key is to understand the dynamic complexity of the system, the interrelationships. They don’t just blame Trump. They look at circles of influence. They are notorious for diagrams with lots of arrows to understand the flow of influence, so they can visualize repeating patterns.
Where Linear Thinkers look at individual actions, Systems Thinkers look at the structure underlying the actions.
They believe the chaos we see today is the direct result of our inability to see the system as a whole.
Short, Medium and Long Range Goals
Short, Medium Range, Long Range Goals
The President needs to set short term goals – the do something – to address the immediate problem of people not feeling safe to go into Walmart etc.
The President needs to set medium range goals – for instance, to prevent people who may be a threat from getting guns which they can use in mass killings.
And the President needs to appoint a commission to study the problem of mass shootings in depth and give the nation a comprehensive plan for how to prevent mass shootings in the long term.
The President needs to call on a variety of experts from diverse fields in the area of mass shootings to help him formulate, short, medium and long range goals in addressing this problem.
I-It relating is totally subjective. The I looks at everything in relation to their self. Their desires and concerns are a barrier to real meeting. There is contrivance and hypocrisy. Imposition characterizes I-It Relating as the I tries to impose their views, their wants on the other.
