Question: On a live broadcast, the President of the United States Barack Obama spoke about the need to introduce stringent regulations on arms sales, to tighten controls, to ban the purchase of weapons through the Internet, etc.
Answer: What will change if they ban the sale of weapons. Already there are a large number of weapons in people’s hands? Is it difficult to get a gun?
After all, it is possible for anyone to buy one. Once, I went into a cellar in New York where it turned out that they sold weapons, including small cannons. Please, buy. There is no need for permission or anything: just bring money.
Question: Is this to say that the ban on weapons is not the solution to the problem of mass murder in the United States?
Answer: It certainly isn’t. There is no connection between the one and the other.
Mass murder is the result of the lack of the right education of the populace. If there is no education, then no laws will help, and if you assign a policeman to every citizen, then he too will be involved in this.
We need to form people from a young age and truly make it so that these young people will grow up and become human beings, and will understand how to communicate correctly with each other. It is necessary to teach lessons about patience to them. Suppose that they are yelling at me now while I listen in a relaxed manner, smiling in response, and carefully disagree about things. Training like this is imperative.
It is necessary to teach them about psychology, to discover human nature, the system of mutual relationships between us, to learn how to cooperate mutually with each other, and how to turn every situation so that it will be good both for the other and for me because, from his side, the same response will follow.
Question: Are you saying that the starting point is education?
Answer: It is solely and only education. The situation comes from the evil latent in a person that isn’t balanced.
Education is the most important thing. It is not listening to boring school lectures, but obtaining the proper education through practical training, especially through enacting games from situations in life. That is how a person gets used to playing with one’s egoism in all kinds of situations. And all will be well.
