The 1992 Berlitz Travel Guide for Washington, DC pictured one of the vigilers over the caption,
"It's the right of every American to set up a stand and make a point in Lafayette Park."
Those who share the materialistic values symbolized by the White
House may view the vigil as "visual blight" (the Washington Times
called the vigilers "pitiable lunatics" and the signs "gibberish" in the 1980s).
On the other extreme, those who assign a high
value to life and view the policies of the White House as slightly
"mad" think that the vigil reflects sanity, and some journalists have
likened the vigilers to saints and prophets.
As the vigilers see it, they are neither saints nor lunatics. They wait for humanity to understand that we no longer have to live under an Orwellian
philosophy which pursues peace through war; truth, justice,
freedom and equality through money; and a "voodoo economic" system which places a higher premium on dollars than on life.
