You may find similar shock value content in a lot of teenagers journals, but how many of them will formulate a plan to kill 100's of students, including people they are friends with? I would take what that teenager says literally in a journal, because he proved he wasn't kidding. He was a sadistic, deeply disturbed kid.

Yeah, I've always found it weird how casual Eric and Dylan were about the prospect of their friends dying in the planned explosions. "Morris, Nate, if you guys live, I want you guys to have whatever you want from my room", "Susan, sorry. Under different circumstances it would've been a lot different. I want you to have that fly CD." Such little regard for the fact that their selfish actions could have potentially killed their friends/romantic interests or severely maimed them. Then reading the 11k and hearing about how they waved and nodded greetings to their friends and acquaintances when they were getting ready to plant the bombs. Definitely a genuine emotional detachment there.

But what if they're okay with their peers and people they know dying because they were going to be dead themselves? So they thought it's nothing to feel guilty about because everyone's going down with them. Alongside being completely emotionally detached that day. To them they probably felt what makes it okay was that they the killers will be taken out too.

Jumping off from this....and this is a reach for sure but if Dylan really did believe death was a better thing than being alive and unhappy perhaps he thought he was doing them a favor by killing them.

Boom. That's actually a perfect possible point of view to look at. Didn't eric spout something along those lines too in one of his many novels? It may be my imagination.

I haven't reread but I think he mentioned something about how he would rather die than follow the other sheep or some such.
