Oh, for heaven's sake!posted by The Vidiot @ 8:50 PM Permalink This guy really needs... oh, I don't know... SOMEthing. He got all freaked out from some graffiti that said "problem reaction solution... get it yet?" with a little drawing of a continental soldier next to it. Now, that could be just an anarchist saying "Hey! Bozos! Do ya' think it's time for a revolution already?" or, as the janitor thinks, part of some HUGE conspiracy movement.
Excerpt: Roberts didn't know what to think when he first saw the graffiti yesterday. Later, inspired by crime scene investigation TV shows and "The Da Vinci Code," Roberts researched the message using Internet searches and was bowled over by what he found. According to various Web sites, the graffiti traces back to a government conspiracy theory. The idea is that when the government wants to do something, such as start a war or pass a law, officials create a problem that causes the public to demand a war or a law.Honestly, I don't think it's much of a theory. It's kind of a fact. But that's neither here nor there. I think the janitor was all freaked out at the very THOUGHT that the government could be so conniving. So, to calm the cognitive dissonance, he just couldn't believe that people actually thought that. (e.g. how could they possibly think something so awful about OUR government?) Funny how some people just can't "get" that our government lies to us, steals from us, and generally, couldn't give a rats ass about us.
