It’s too late to pull back from this insanity and go back to any semblance of normal – the inmates have take over the asylum and no-one is stepping up to stop them. I never thought we would ever have a legitimate scenario for a modern day civil war, but the writing is now all over the wall – it’s leftist anarchists hell-bent on destroying America versus the rest of us. There is no way this will end well for the nation as a whole.
Change my mind – how to recover from this?
TRUE. WHEN I LIVED IN DC, MY NEIGHBORHOOD WAS STILL SCARRED FROM THE 1968 RIOTS: A Few Days of Riots Can Echo for Many Years. And, of course, it was poor people who suffered.
Researchers in a 2004 National Bureau of Economic Research paper found that “riots depressed the median value of black-owned property between 1960 and 1970, with little or no rebound in the 1970s,” and “that the racial gap in the value of property widened in riot-afflicted cities during the 1970s….Using both city-level and household-level data, we find negative, persistent, and economically significant correlations between riot severity and black-owned property values.”
But the people promoting the riots aren’t the ones who suffer, and have their own agendas.
