On peut lire sur le site du quotidien texan The American-Statesman la note publiée sur internet par Joe Stack, l’homme soupçonné d’avoir mis le feu à sa maison avant de précipiter son avion ce matin sur un édifice du gouvernement fédéral abritant des bureaux de l’IRS, le fisc américain, à Austin ce matin. J’en cite un extrait dans le texte :
We are all taught as children that without laws there would be no society, only anarchy. Sadly, starting at early ages we in this country have been brainwashed to believe that, in return for our dedication and service, our government stands for justice for all. We are further brainwashed to believe that there is freedom in this place, and that we should be ready to lay our lives down for the noble principals represented by its founding fathers. Remember? One of these was “no taxation without representation”. I have spent the total years of my adulthood unlearning that crap from only a few years of my childhood. These days anyone who really stands up for that principal is promptly labeled a “crackpot”, traitor and worse.
