I had hoped to get away from commenting on current events, but they do have a way of intruding on my best intentions. I have been working on Space: 1889 and thinking about having some sort of rift between the Cepheus Engine sector I am working on and the Solar System of Space: 1889. However, back to my not-politically correct views.

Well, the Minneapolis City Council has decided, in its "collective wisdom", to disband the police department and replace it with something else, to be determined later. Whether or not they will consult the citizens of the city does not seem to have been thought of. It appears that the assumption of the city council is that having a portion of their city destroyed in rioting, the citizens would be more than happy to loose all police protection, and if they don't, they are ignorant racists to be ignored at will by their elite superiors. This could get quite interesting. I can just see the city councils meeting on the subject being done in closed session with all visitors participating by computer, and only those who support the proposal being allowed to speak. Then again, having a city actually try this would be a good example for what other cities should not do, but it might be a tad hard on the businesses and citizens. I do anticipate firearm sales to explode.

One additional casualty of the riots is the entire lockdown idea. If mass protest are okay, then the actual citizens of the state who businesses are being wrecked are going to say, Forget You, and start opening up. I can see our morbidly obese governor throwing his quite considerable weight around trying to get local police to enforce his lockdown orders when the protestors are immune. That does not work well. The same holds true for Chicago's mayor, who shrieking is become more incoherent by the day. Definitely a one-termer, but then, she will be able to avoid taking the city into bankruptcy. As for some areas of the city, getting groceries is going to be very, very difficult, while the black-on-black body count continues to rise. No one really does seem to be protesting against that.

Then I am also waiting to find out if those publishers who do not participate in DriveThru's "charity bundle" for the rioters end up being barred from the site. i suspect that will be the case, but I will see. One does have to be busy "virtue signaling" now. They should be more careful as to who bed they are climbing into. They might just get eaten.

One different spot is that I am also going to be working on putting together some history classes for the home schoolers in the area, and also those who have been trapped in the public schools, who have basically lost a year of schooling courtesy of the lockdowns. I need to start writing some curriculum and lay out an outline of my ideas. beginning with the Protestant Reformation, which is unheard of in the public schools, the Constitution and what it says, the first President to have problems with the press, the unknown War of 1812, some of Andrew Jackson's headaches, along with the Dred Scott case and John Brown's Raid. I may turn those into YouTube talks with some help from a couple of young friends who I have mentored.
