Forever Pointing At Everyone Else

"While I personally have nothing against torching buildings and brawling under appropriate circumstances, I can't understand why Paul Auster simply can't say, "I ripped out the fence because I wanted to. I rioted because I decided to." The idea that a 61 year old man might act irrationally because the mere thought of US policy in Iraq deprives him of reason is a pretty disturbing,...there's a whole population,...of seemingly normal people out there just waiting to go berserk at the mere mention of politics they disapprove of."
