Smashed before noon


Oh yeah, they were practically all soldiers right? Apart from Luna and her flunkies. All of Xeno’s dudes were people who were at that party and heard him yell to stay awake.

The pseudo-leader guy whose name I forget definitely doesn't seem unbothered by the carnage.

Even outside Xeno and Stanley, people like Maya, Brody, and Charlotte have all been shown to immediately resort to violence as (one of) their first response(s).

Brody only reacted that way once they were outright attacked.

It should be noted that most of Xeno's people were handpicked from elite American military forces, of course they're predisposed to violence, they were intentionally selected for talent and bloodthirstyness.

Notice that none of the non-Xeno civilians we've seen (Luna, Chelsea, Carlos, Max, Joel and his boss) seem particularly violent at all. Luna pretty much had to have a gun held to her head to be an accessory to murder, and even then immediately started helping the victim to recover to the best of her abilities.

If anything, it's more commentary on the state of American government and military culture rather than Americans on the whole.

Should note they are not even proper American Military, Stanley's crew is outright stated to be mercenaries.
