Comment: I don't think this is

(See in situ)

I don't think this is

I don't think this is inherently American though. You could do the same thing in Japan and get the same results. Young people everywhere are mindless, self-centered, and clueless.

One thing I noticed though when I went back to the US this past summer is that many Americans are non-confrontational almost to the point of being completely paranoid. I was struck by how many people are very standoffish even if you're standing in front of them with a smile and open handed. I thought this was very strange and very unAmerican.

Why do you think? I was wondering if it was because of so many mass shootings....
