Angry at his bank and the IRS, Terry Hoskins smashes a bulldozer into his own $350,000 home!

Talk about an ironic reversal on the Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes: you don’t win a big home, you bulldoze it!

Terry Hoskins says he’d had enough. This today at AP:

Terry Hoskins says he has struggled with the RiverHills Bank over his home in Moscow for years and had problems with the Internal Revenue Service. He says the IRS placed liens on his carpet store and commercial property and the bank claimed his house as collateral.

Hoskins says he owes $160,000 on the house. He says he spent a lot of money on attorneys and finally had enough.

What is it about the 21st century human psyche and barreling into structures? Is this just a matter of simple metaphorical association: buildings are Moloch (symbols of a dead and indifferent system that eats and alienates labor and humanity)?

This is from the great Weimar Germany silent film, Metropolis:
