People who find themselves in dire economic straits throughout America tomorrow may also be expected to turn to the red–curtained drama of mass violence in order to ‘send a message’ across the footlights. This message, however, will not be sent from a very small part of the country to the rest of it, but from the entire country to the very small part that constitutes the failed economic and political leadership classes. So the level of violence will be far greater, and its focus far narrower and much sharper.
