America camouflages its obsessive fear through firearms. Unfortunately, the media has much to do with this. For those interested to learn the twisted inner-workings of the American media, I recommend Noam Chomsky's Manufacturing Consent: A Propaganda Model. Perhaps someone should write a similar book with Malaysia in focus.


Glad you enjoyed Bowling, bro. Weird fact of the day: in the US, it's illegal to sell replica BB guns (like the ones used in Lost in Translation) while it's perfectly legal to sell civilians real guns. Look at their gun death rates.

In Japan where civilians are forbidden to buy guns, replicas (or airsoft as they're called) are freely available to the public, and guess what: their gun death rate is one of the lowest in the world.

I like the part in BfC that showed the irony of him being able to obtain a gun in a bank. That's Yanks for you. Brilliant stuff, BfC!
