Humans are, by our very nature, aggressive and prone to take advantage of certain situations. But as our societies matured, they were also allowed to flourish because we made them civil.
How so? By building institutions like police departments, court systems, and places to put lawbreakers as punishment — the latter an inducement not to break the law again or to keep dangerous people out of the civil society.
But in recent months, Leftist Marxists have sought to capitalize on the death of George Floyd to implement a strategy they’ve been planning since the days of Barack Obama: Anarchy that will lead to a massive change in the way Americans are governed (and most of us won’t like it).
The plan is being implemented in cities where Leftist Marxists dominate — like Portland, Ore., Minneapolis, Minn., and Seattle, Wash., the latter of which is about to get rid of all police, all jails, and all juvenile detention facilities.
Seattle, Washington, has been laying out plans to abolish its police department as the wider county lays out a path to getting rid of the region’s largest jail and abolish juvenile detention.
The city plans to replace the police department with a “civilian led Department of Community Safety & Violence Prevention,” according to a resolution published last week.
A majority of the City Council has endorsed defunding the department, though latest developments suggest at least a slowdown of the plan.
In addition to ditching the police department, King County, where Seattle is located, is planning to get rid of all youth detention facilities by 2025, while the city and county both plan to ‘phase out’ jails and detention facilities.
Rational people don’t think these are good ideas, but nobody has accused the lunatics running the ‘Emerald City’ of being rational people. The notion that touchy-feely ‘violence prevention’ people can successfully intervene in a violent criminal act (murder, bank robbery, strong-armed robbery, fighting with deadly weapons, etc.) is complete idiocy.
And in fact, Seattle residents with all of their faculties were reminded just how prone to failure such policies are: The recently-dismantled CHOP zone, which became a deadly shooting gallery within a month of its creation.
This is the same zone where ‘residents’ had to beg for food from the outside world just days after it was set up because homeless people stole it all.
Getting rid of all of the institutions we’ve built over the past 100 years to become the most successful, wealthiest country in the history of the world just isn’t sane. But if you’re trying to create chaos so that you can launch a ‘revolution’ that will change our founding form of government into something else, you have to create violence and anarchy in order to do it.
That’s really what this Seattle ‘experiment’ is all about.
“Meanwhile, Seattle has had a growing violence problem. Violent crime is up more than 40 percent between 2008 and 2019, particularly aggravated assaults, which have nearly doubled, police department data shows,” The Epoch Times notes further.
“Despite the economic shutdown this year, violent crime numbers are keeping pace with last year, according to data from July 8. Burglaries are up by 23 percent, arson by 85 percent, likely due to regular protests and riots that have often included vandalizing property,” the outlet notes further.
And now, they're going to kill off the police.
Again, these stats ought to be stiff reality checks for sane, rational leaders who claim to want to serve and protect the citizens who elected them.
But they’re being ignored, which means that has to be on purpose.
If you live in Seattle, get out. If you stay, good luck.
