On Troubled Young Men

Melissa MacKenzie, The American Spectator

Loving bonds, responsibility to others, noble missions, respectful friendships, challenging work, productive passions, and demands for service can give young men meaning. They are ripe for self-sacrifice and doing the heroic. All that is good in a man can be disastrous wrongly applied. Like an ungrounded wire, he can harm everything he touches. This same young man with his energies channeled can become a productive member of society — maybe even a great man. Maybe even a hero. Gang members, AntiFa, and mass murdering young men have much in common. Too many end up dead, in jail, or worse, murderers.
