The latest battle-cry, or insane scream to be more accurate, from the far-left is to "defund the police", with Minneapolis actually trying to do so. This should be an extremely interesting experiment, best viewed as a distance, preferably from another state not adjacent to Minnesota. The biggest question I have is how long it will take businesses, and residents, to leave the city, never to return. At least on company has already announced it was leaving, but there are likely those who will simply go, and not announce their departure. Then there are the businesses, in Minneapolis and other cities. that will simply close their doors and never reopen, or move, as they do not have the funds to do anything else. Burning down and looting one's own community is rarely a formula for success.

Presumably, this is the thought of the Secular Humanists, who have this bizarre belief that man is good and it is society that makes him bad. One would think that after roughly 6 or so millennia that this idea would no longer be viewed as a viable thought. Man's behavior has not changed in recorded history, and before recorded history, and is never going to. I could recommend reading Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion, but I fear that most of the forum lacks the necessary religious vocabulary to that. However, the prophet Jeremiah sums it up quite nicely with "17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?". King James Version, which can be downloaded at Project Gutenberg. The older I get, the more definitely I will support Calvin in his view of the depravity of man.

Then there is the total insanity in Seattle, where the chickens have come home to roost for the mayor and governor. The insanity there is that I suspect that the mob that has taken over that 6 block area really thinks that the very long grocery list of demands is going to be meant. They did not say what would happen if the demands were not meant. Personally, I would love to see the Feds treat them as an independent state, require duly issued passports to be presented on leaving, require trade agreements to be negotiated before allowing and goods or food to enter the area, and warn persons that if they enter, they will not be allowed out without a passport properly stamped by a recognized government. That would be fun to see. You would just have to make sure that the Customs and Immigration personnel were properly supported, like with maybe an armored brigade or two or three from Fort Lewis.
