    But if you're satisfied with being a Jacobin, that's your problem.
    You realize you just called two of our founders tyrants. But, by some definitions, indeed they were.

    There are wins and losses based upon perspective.

    I don't ever remember Stalin or Pot ... or even Jackson having that many mobs. They just killed people... a lot of them. Well Jackson didn't, he was an asshole, but not a mass murderer.

    This is a travesty. These people are not protesting... They are out to party, destroy and steal. That's it. Do you think the guy walking out of the store with a 40oz he did not obviously pay for gives a damn? Of course not. Opportunistic parasites, all of em.

    The worst thing could be lots of innocent people getting killed. Buildings can be repaired and rebuilt.

    They simply don't have enough men to do the job. Unfortunately some businesses have been terribly damaged, and if they were lucky, only have to replace some glass.

    Let me ask you this: Were it not for our sensationalist national media, who is no doubt covering this live right now with their pro-fear rhetoric, and in the case of Fox "News," Right-Wing rhetoric as well, could you honestly say that the overall civilian reaction would have been exactly the same?
    Yes it would of, and you know why we can say that with a hundred percent certainty? Because this isn't the first time these people turned to violence and looting. That is what BROUGHT the attention of the media. Were they never violent, media wouldn't of cared. It's a double edged sword really, without the media attention, it's very likely this would of just been another case of a black kid shot by a white cop.

    If civilians are stupid enough to make decisions based upon media reports, it is absolutely their fault.

    The most unenviable job in America right now would be the President of the Ferguson Chamber of Commerce.

    Washington and Hamilton did what was required to stop unnecessary destruction of government. I absolutely, without reservation, stand on the side of law and order. I do not care if you are a Leftist or a Right-winger, if you harbor anti-government sentiment and prefer to destroy society to satisfy solipsistic wishes, I think you should be stopped with as much force as necessary. This means if you are willing to subcumb to authority, you should be treated as a surrendering criminal. If you continue to scale up your resistance with greater and greater threat to others, the response should scale up.
