I'm always fascinated by live hostage situations that unfold on national tv. As I type, this, a guy named James Jay Lee is holding people hostage in the Discovery TV building in Silver Springs, Maryland. I just read his manifesto which I'm sure will be taken down at some point...
He sounds a bit deranged and disturbed with his tone, but his underlying premise for population control seems to make sense. He basically claims that humans are recklessly endangering the planet and they need to cease procreating. Good luck with that one. He wants the Discovery Channel to take a more active role in helping stop overpopulation, find solutions to global warming, end modern warfare, and just stop destroying the planet. Well, well, where to begin. The irony with this nutso is that most of his ramblings make sense. Human beings are definitely destroying the planet and the global population does need curtailed.
Here's what I think is interesting about all this. Lee's behavior is a fine representation of the future of decentralized warfare. He had a specific mission and a plan to use live media coverage for maximum exposure of his personal cause/website. Whatever you think about his illegal conduct, he had a purpose and will get far more than his fifteen minutes of fame. Hmmmm, does any of this sound familiar? It's the exact same methodology a small group of individuals could use to carry out the superbowl stunt I often speak of. Well, except with my idea, you get the highest rate of return on live media coverage ever fathomed. Certainly, since 9/11. Lee just made the entire media bend to his knees. CNN, Fox and MSNBC are collectively performing fellatio on his diminutive Asian member.
This makes me think back to the recent Joseph Stack attack on the IRS building in Austin, Texas. Of course, his motivation for flying a plane into building was entirely personal. And he was suicidal. But Lee, seems to have a vision... a loosely connected agenda he is desperate to promote. Right now as I type, the hostage situation is still unresolved. Whether or not he ends up killing innocents or himself for that matter isn't really the issue. Maybe he will, maybe he won't. The underlying point is the emphasis on MESSAGE in the latter stages of fourth generational warfare. It's my contention that incidents like this are going to continue and will increase exponentially. How could they possibly not?
Of course I'm not condoning any of this moron's actions, just merely stating the obvious. In the near future, I'd look for a similar incident to take place with regard to the imbecilic Obama birther controversy. Of course, with my idea you need 2 people at the very least. It's crazy the amount of live coverage James Jay Lee is getting. His situation will eventually resolve itself and be an incredibly minor footnote in the annuls of American history. But can you even begin to fathom or conceive of the massive precedent the superbowl stunt would invoke. And the idea I alluded to would alter future human behavior in ways that are currently unprecedented.
I did like the way he ends his manifesto - "These are the demands and sayings of Lee." Nothing spells out delusion like referring to yourself in the third person.
