This story is interesting. A guy fired a gun a the White House.
It’s pretty obvious what happened. At some point, he met some politicians, saw they had evil personality tendencies, and became obsessed.
That’s the reason “mentally unbalanced” people (i.e. mentally aware people) become obsessed with politicians. They see that they’re the most evil people they’ve met, even though they’re the leaders. It’s very disturbing.
If you’ve partially cracked your pro-State brainwashing, but not fully, then you may do something stupid.
Stories like this are a type of evil fnord. “If you’re disgruntled, violence is the only solution.”
Whenever I hear a story like this, I think “If only I had a chance to explain my philosophy to him, maybe I could have convinced him to pursue more productive resistance, rather than do something stupid.”
Yeah, this sort of high profile violence thing is a poor choice except as a last measure, by which I mean the last thing you ever do as a free man or an alive one.
Malcolm X once said “Any time you know you’re within the law, within your legal rights, within your moral rights, in accord with justice, then die for what you believe in. But don’t die alone. Let your dying be reciprocal. This is what is meant by equality. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.”
In other words, if one is going to fire a gun, they should do it seriously, and not just as a token action that squanders their life. If you are going to fall on your sword for nothing, that is a waste.
One problem is that, if I did decide to “go postal”, there’s no way I could get all the people who I know deserve it, before I got caught. Other strategies are better.
That’s why I like agorism and promoting freedom. That attacks the system that lets evil people steal, without directly hurting anyone and without much risk.
