Our managers have failed. The mayors of two major cities have instructed the police to stand down and let the protesters work it out. This did not work out in Baltimore and has only emboldened this latest round of protesters. Or should I say looters. Or are the real looters the government as defined by Ayn Rand?
As the riots quickly escalate across the country, the real looters (the political elite) are helpless. The people who tried to live the American dream have become causalities of their apathy as the political elite make excuses. The truth is that any action taken to quell the violence will not be made as they weigh election results in November against restoring peace.
How will America look one week from one? Maybe the question should be whether America will survive intact in the short future. I remember how quickly the Berlin Wall fell. I remember how quickly the Soviet Union dissolved. Factor in mass unemployment, a pandemic, lock downs and a culture war devised to accomplish what we are seeing unfold before you answer.
When we reach the point where we no longer have faith in our government, economy and future, we will look for viable alternatives. I believe helicopter money and government handouts to the producers was the last great hope to extend their rule. How long this final extension will last may very well be in the hands of protesters, agitators and failed politicians.
This was not the end that our founding fathers envisioned. If they were here today, they would say that we have reaped what we have sown.
