Adam Lanza: Existentialist gone wild?
I'm beginning to wonder whether Adam Lanza's supposed Asperger's diagnosis was accurate. Perhaps he was someone capable of doing what he did without being possessed by the Spirits of Darkness, due to the combination of factors impinging upon him (such as likely existentialist indoctrination and video games). He might have decided that his life was over (his mom was supposedly planning to have him committed), and that he might as well commit suicide and get revenge on society for something he imagined it had done to him.
Still, this doesn't rule out the influence of the Spirits of Darkness, who have the ability to feed us thoughts, emotions, and will-impulses, besides being able to take possession through the force of their will over weak-minded people.
