The OCP building was in Dallas Texas though, the City Hall. Not a skyscraper: just the bottom was real.

My daughter has friends who live practically at the edge of it, and nobody wants to be anywhere near a mock battle zone.
America is becoming a country that can no longer question itself, invest in the public good or imagine a future beyond the dreamscapes of the rich and ruling elite. Apocalyptic fears, uncertainties and anxieties feed a rising tsunami of violence that has become the organizing principle of governance, everyday life and society itself. American society is caught in the daily routines of lies, corruption and manufactured ignorance; one consequence is the withering of individual and social agency along with civic culture and the public imagination. American optimism has turned bleak. In the age of gangster capitalism, people lose their interconnections, community and sense of security. Isolation and anxiety gives way to mass depression and is ripe for expressions of rage and hatred. The guard rails of justice, compassion, the welfare state, politics, democratic values and the institutions that nourish them are under threat of disappearing. Apocalyptic terrors have moved from the realm of fiction into the social fabric of everyday life. - Henry Giroux 2023-03-05

I talked to my daughter last night, it turns out that she knew the boy who was shot, "Tort" (short for "the little turtle"). She didn't know him well, had only met him a couple of times, but one of her friends knew him somewhat better. She said that he was mid-20s, gay, and a total pacifist who regularly told people "No violence! We can't be like them!"

A group of them were camped out in "the Forest" (as they called that area), and he was shot in his sleeping bag inside his tent, from the outside. The police said that they had heard a shot, but there were no guns found in the area.

It's a difficult road for pacificists, but Ghandiji did it, boycott industries (homespun).

equivalently, if young people today stopped eating/using animal products, that would erode a huge chain of capital going towards today's worst climate/ political influencers.
