"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
I'm just curious as to his motives...Seems like a pretty smart guy. Did well in school, was in grad school. I wonder what the trigger was, for him to all of a sudden start trying to plan this crap out? And why? Did his girlfriend leave him for another dude? Is he gay, and his boyfriend leave him for another dude? Not trying to joke about it, but it just seems silly for me to try to rationalize this...I mean, there is pretty much nothing that can happen to you that is so bad to have you plan this, right? Did the kid discover nihilism, or something? I mean, Dark Knight came out a long ass time ago...so, why not do this then? It just seems so odd, random, and arbitrary...and lately, I've stopped believing in random. We're ALL in a giant Rube Goldberg contraption. So, what ball dropping caused this, for this kid?
