If you don’t say what the mob wants you to say, you’re run out of town. It is indeed a fickle crowd. Wikipedia defines Ochlocracy or mob rule as the Latin phrase “mobile vulgus”, the fickle crowd. It will turn on its own. The City Mayor himself, a supporter no less, was chased off when he said something the mob didn’t like. What will the mob allow the “community lead public safety” people to do?
Another city may crumble
Minneapolis is now an extremely left wing radicalized city. Council member Jeremiah Ellison is Keith Ellison’s son. Keith’s ex wife is the Chairwoman of the Minneapolis School board. They just severed ties with the police. Jeremiah maybe running for Mayor next year. Ilham Omar is the Minneapolis representative so the politics are at least as left wing as San Francisco, if not more so.
“We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department,” Council Member Jeremiah Ellison tweeted a few days ago.
One wonders if it will become too toxic to stay
The rules for this “community lead public safety” group have yet to be determined. Will city power squabbles bring it down into chaos? It IS about power. If it was about justice, minority business and minority police might have been left alone.
If business is forced out of the city, there’s no taxes to be collected either from the business owner or any employees. Taxes is still how government is paid. Capitalism is still how money is made. Without thriving businesses to offer jobs, people will have to leave.
Government is the master
Until city and government officials are run out of office. People insisting on mask usage have proven government can do anything including changing the rules, and people will go along with it. The Constitution is only as good as people willing to enforce it.
What will happen to the Democrats? If this continues down this path, they’ve already used the “blame everything on the other party” tactic. Everything was Bush’s or now Trump’s fault. It’s either genocide or war now. This can happen in every Democratic state, every city.
Nobody will buy any property in the city of Minneapolis. People invest in properties. Nobody will want to invest in this. Current property values are worthless now, people can’t sell. Properties might be abandoned.
This is where arson comes from
It’s been used for many years. Sometimes financial lessons are learned the hard way. Even liberals who’ve bought property there and can’t sell will turn conservative once they’ve seen what happens when property values drop.
Remember Detroit? Actually, no, liberals aren’t capable of seeing the destruction caused by their own thinking. Detroit is still there but in ruins. It has to be personal. It commonly has to hit people in the wallet or circumstances to understand a particular line of thinking will lead down a particular path, regardless.
The last shoe may not drop
Systemic racism may be held over the country’s head if conservatives don’t write an open check to bail them out. The city council could just contract the job of burning the remainder of the city out, blaming it on white supremacists.
We’re living James Madison’s nightmare. Government was supposed to over power mob rule. Elected people were also supposed to be capable of enforcing laws and rules. If elected officials aren’t capable of doing that, the mob will indeed rule.
There are a lot of things the founders couldn’t have imagined. If truth isn’t upheld, the nation will burn.
