So I checked out the Communist Manifesto a few days ago. I listened to a debate on communism and heard a lot of interesting points about Marx's view of capitalism. Anyway I had always heard people joke about being put on a watch list after checking out certain books, and I even read a news story about someone who checked out The Little Red Book and Homeland Security showed up at his house.
Well today while I was on campus, two members of the US Army showed up to my house looking for me. If I hadn't checked out the book so recently I don't think I would even think about it. Am I being overly paranoid? I tried to assume they were out on recruitment, but after they were told I was on campus they said they would go look for me. I figure if it was recruitment they would also visit my friends in the neighborhood but they didn't.
