“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”
― Milton Friedman

“Human beings are born with different capacities. If they are free, they are not equal. And if they are equal, they are not free.”

Mobs

The Democratic Party/Media conglomerate has its panties in a knot about the description of Antifa, #MeToo, et. al. as mobs. Well, they have broken windows, preemptively threatened violence against demonstrations they dislike, committed arson, screamed in the faces of their opponents, physically attacked other demonstrators, injured professors during campus "deplatforming" rallies, and battered cars with steel batons while usurping police powers. That's not a comprehensive list, and I didn't include the individuals attacking people like Steve Scalise and Rand Paul, but don't forget the urging to violence from individuals like Maxine Waters, Kathy Griffin, Cher, Eric Holder, Madonna, Jackson Cosko, or Loretta Lynch.

This is mob behavior. The Dem/Media conglomerate defends it; they don't like the word. They forget they labelled the tea party protesters as a mob, while the tea party committed none of the crimes listed above.

We even left demonstration sites cleaner than we found them.

If the tea party was a "mob," then these Progressive objections are right - the current protesters are not a mob. They're much worse. Maybe we should call them goon groups.

I favor Thuggees, but I'm afraid it's a tad esoteric for the average CNN/MSNBC viewer.
