I always found this aspect of Adam Lanza (if he really did exist) kind of weird. He said children
are treated badly by society, he seemed to be angry the parents could force them to get medical
care and stuff like that. Yet he went on a shooting spree against children.

He probably thought his own childhood was abusive (his relationship with his mothers, psychiatrists...) and wanted to make it clear that it was bad. To me when he said this kind of things he was more complaining about his own life than trying to defend children rights. But I also think that he truly thought some things could be good for children and some things were bad, which could explain his comments on pedophilia. I don't think he was siding with the adult, I do think he considered himself on the side of the child. Although on this I think he was more complaining about society than really trying to make things better for children.

But given that we have very few materials about Lanza, this is only assumptions, I may be totally wrong.

If you watch the Travis radio call, it becomes pretty clear that he has a broad opposition to the 21st-century Western style of childrearing and not just resentment over his own childhood. He saw the way children are domesticated and encultured as analogous to the predicament Travis found himself in. This, coupled with the comments on SBB where he said that children were indoctrinated and stripped of their rights seems to suggest this was a fundamental part of his ideology and not simply latent grievances about his past. His father actually said something about him often wistfully talking about his childhood as he grew older, wishing he could go back. I believe he either targeted children to "free" them from what he saw as a sick civilization, simply to increase his kill count, or to horrify the public to the maximum degree. There're also the pedophilia theories, but I find that less likely than one of the three aforementioned motives. It's definitely a possibility though.

It takes a special kind of idiot to advocate for children's rights then turn around and kill a bunch of them.

I wouldn't really call him an idiot; his reasoning seems really inconsistent, yes, but you've gotta keep in mind that this was a guy who had brain damage from malnutrition and likely suffered from psychotic episodes or even outright schizophrenia. If his reasoning seems really odd, well, it's because it is.

I agree with that, what I meant was that I don't think he killed the children nor complained about child rearing out of generosity for children. I don't think he did that really in order to help them, but instead more to complain about society and tell his view on it. I don't know if you see what I mean. And I surely don't think he killed the children to free them.

I forgot about the radio call.

I think his interest in children right was based on his experience and his thoughts on society.
He was mad that his parents took him to that shrink when he was 14 and maybe that is why he became interested in children right because his parent took him without his consent. He said children should be able to make the decision if they want to see a shrink.

Adam Lanza also hated the culture. And he was the school forcing the children to adapt to the culture instead of being in "chimp like state".

Did Adam Lanza ever talk about why he hated society so much. I mean we know he had issues with communication but what reasons did he give

these are the reasons I found
-he was angry at anti depressants
-had a negative view on marridge and raising children in a marriage
-hated human languages
-felt society persecuted people for no good reason.
- Adam Lanza did not believe in morality, he felt values were arbitrary.

One thing I been thinking about is society forced the children to be in school instead of letting them decide what to do with their time, for example if you younger than 16 in some states you have to be at school you are not allowed to what you want with your free time.

I think in some way Eric and Dylan or Cho are more despicable than Adam Lanza. Because the parent of high school kids have spent more money and time raising them its like an even bigger insult.
