Destroy to Rebuild; The Legacy of Democracy

By Douglas V. Gibbs

The liberal left Democrats have been encouraging violence.  I am surprised violence didn't erupt against the Brexit voters.  But, that's Britain.  Perhaps they are ready to head back in the right direction.

In the United States, however, violence has marred the Trump campaign, has rocked cities, and is beginning to become a kind of norm.  That's the democracy the leftists have been crying for.  Democracy is mob-rule, and mob rule is mob violence.

Thanks to mob-rule we have seen the National Guard operate in a number of cities.  Curfews were imposed.  Business owners had to figure out how to pick up the pieces of their smashed windows around their burned and looted stores.  The liberal left calls it social justice. I call it the destructive nature of democracy.

Equality is determined at the starting line, not the finish line.  The liberal left, however, believes equality is the end result, not the starting line of opportunity.  If there is no equity after the smoke kills, they say it's unfair, or unjust.  And, to be frank, we are not equal.  Not in that way, anyways.  Equality is about how we stand in the eyes of the law, and in the eyes of God.  But, we all have our skills, our unique contributions to society.  And, sometimes, in the competition for a better life, some do better than others.  That is not a failure of equality.  It is the success of a free market system where individuals can make better lives for themselves.

There is no accountability when it comes to the liberal left.  They impose their desire for a leviathan government, divide the population, and set us against each other.  When violence erupts those who seek to support individualism are blamed, not the socialist collectivists that created the environment for violence in the first place.

Which political party runs the cities where the violence has been?

This is a battle for the control of America, and the Democrats are using mob-rule to achieve it.  Democracy.  Mob violence.

It festers in the public-employee unions, it is taught in the schools, and it is paid for with money from the Democrats.

The riots are a natural consequence of expansive government, and a loss of our moral standards.

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom.  As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." -- Benjamin Franklin

Are we becoming enslaved?  Is the expanding central government and the Democrats who run it the new plantation owners?

The police have become revenue hunters and riot police.  The criminal justice system is corrupt, and filled with lawyers and judges who have abandoned the rule of law, and chase after the easy fix of case law.

Do we really want them telling us how to raise our children, if we can own guns, and which bathroom to use?

They want one part rule.  I fear, through the violence of democracy, they may achieve it.
