I saw it written once that the definition of insanity is repeating the same process over and over and expecting the outcome to suddenly be different. I am finally ready to stop this insanity. Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, letís try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well.
It's a hella long read, but he has many good points. As a young man in America just getting started out in the career world, his story is frightening. I'll probably never be very rich and struggle with finances all my life. I am already learning to accept it and working to overcome it to get to a stable financial situation that will allow me to have a roof over my head, a working automobile and food to eat. Outside of that, I just want to live my life and start a family. Simple as that, the American Dream, right?
Reading his manifesto, I could put myself in his shoes as a young man. That's what scares me. He's right about what we're taught to believe about the government protecting us and taking care of us. Not screwing us over.
I don't condone suicide, I don't condone violence, I feel terrible for the loss of life. It sounds guy snapped and he decided it to stick it to the IRS in the only way he felt he could. Nothing else he could do would matter as much. I guess he planned to kill a lot of people and it looks like he didn't succeed in that, and for that I am glad, but I suppose I am glad he got his message across.
