The Killer's Mother Was Preparing for the End of the World

It's being reported by a number of sources that the mind of Nancy Lanza, the mother of the mass killer, was convinced that the world would end soon and that she and her son could survive (fend, hunt, collect wood) in the ruins of this civilization...Last night it also emerged Nancy was a member of the Doomsday Preppers movement, which believes people should prepare for end of the world.Her former sister-in-law Marsha said she had turned her home ‘into a fortress’. She added: ‘Nancy had a survivalist philosophy which is why she was stockpiling guns. She had them for defense. ‘She was stockpiling food. She grew up on a farm in New Hampshire. She was skilled with guns. We talked about preppers and preparing for the economy collapsing.’ It's now beginning to look like the mother was also not mentally stable. If she was indeed a "prepper," she was indeed in need of help herself. You know neoliberal ideology has reached a state of perfection/insanity when some of its subjects see the collapse of the economy as a natural disaster (volcanoes erupting, an astroid slamming into the planet, a towering tsunami). But the closest thing to an apocalypse did not come to her but came from her distorted mind.
