John Patrick Bedell, the anti-government extremist who shot two police officers at the Pentagon, recorded a manifesto in 2006 called “Directions to Freedom.” Bedell ranted about how the government can “confiscate the resources of their citizens” and wanted to “eliminate the role of government in education.”

Bedell also spoke out against government control of the monetary system.
