How to Deal With RiotersSubmitted by Menschken on Mon, 07/15/2013 - 13:20
Someday a real rain will wash all the scum off these streets. - Travis Bickle
IMO, anyone engaged in rioting, violence or destruction of property should be shot on sight by the authorities. The mobs would disperse in short order. You can't arrest them all.
Violent mobs are the antithesis of liberty. When the law cowers before violent mobs, that order which is the basis of all liberty is lost.
If we continue down this road of allowing violent mobs of criminals and thugs to terrorize law biding individuals, we will end up with the opposite of liberty, which is in fact anarchy.
It is the worst of both worlds. Deliberate non enforcement of the law. Allowing criminals to destroy property and injure innocent people. And worst of all, if private individuals organize to restore order and disperse these violent mobs, since the "authorities" won't do so, guess what? The "authorities" would then go after these private citizens as "vigilantes." The government will not permit any competition in doing the jobs it refuses to do.
This is what the late Sam Francis Called "Anarcho-Tyranny." The use of the state to harass and terrorize the law-biding: fines, regulations, taxes, etc., while allowing actual criminals to prey on those same law biding citizens.
It is enforced anarchy, as private citizens who attempt to establish order will be hounded, harassed and persecuted for acting in self defense or trying to defend their communities. Zimmerman comes to mind as an example of that.
Looking at the pictures of the mobs now forming around the country to engage in lawless violence, and watching the government focus its energy not on quelling the mobs but on bringing further charges against an innocent man, brings home the true nature of our government.
In a word, anarcho-tyranny. Enforced disorder. Managed chaos.
Fostering as much social disintegration and conflict as possible to make themselves, the state, seem all the more indispensable. Rather than enforcing law and order the government we have today is in fact a parasite upon disorder, which it fosters as a matter of policy.
Do you see the future that is coming, DP? Should make you shudder.
