New Hampshire man burns self to death in protest

If the Arab Spring began self-immolation in Tunesia, might our American Summer begin with the same in New Hampshire?

This story is already four days old. I found it by accident. Why is this act of personal and political desperation in the U.S. not front page news?

A New Hampshire man burned himself to death today in front of a courthouse. The specific reasons are individual to him, regarding a domestic violence arrest and prosecution. But the larger reason he killed himself is that he says the system no longer follows the Rule of Law. Once you read past the details, he gives a fascinating analysis of the system. He argues for a complete takedown of the Federal Government and starting over from scratch.

He may be an example of what is to come – people throwing themselves violently up against the system in order to bring it down.

It’s fifteen pages. Longer than Joe Stack’s. But much shorter than the Obamacare bill.
