American Capital Stupid

April 8, 2016.  I'm sitting here at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Public Library in Washington, D.C., this being my 66th year in a spiritually pointless, materialistically desperate society, (lately with bizarre technological lifestyles), and everybody I meet is complaining. Nobody wants to die lacking knowledge of what they ultimately are, beyond the body and the mind.  
This is in addition to the deranged local environmental situation, beginning with fracked gas activity being forced on east coast landowners, so that U.S. energy companies can keep their market share in other countries where the liquified natural gas end product is being exported.  

I wonder: why doesn't a landowner here just open fire with an automatic weapon and kill the energy company and pipeline company employees, who are being accompanied by armed government agents, when they show up to install the pipelines using the ridiculous legal argument of "eminent domain"?  Just a simple philosophical inquiry this morning, before I check in with the 35 year old anti-nuclear vigil in front of the White House.  

Last thought: most of the passersby yesterday are unsure if it would be better to padlock the building after the Obama's move out, or vote for the Clintons to move back in.  Not ignorantly stuck in postmodern America, Craig Louis Stehr
