Defund the police sounds a hell of a lot more threatening than fuck tha police.
Id be very afraid of a huge surplus of disenfranchised exmilitary white men who think theyre heroes, alphas who like to control situations and think theyre owed a debt of gratitude, whose jobs were suddenly deemed unnecessary .
Smells like iraq post invasion.
This would have to happen slowly or the heroes would kill us.
Your dog who u think loves u will eat your corpse once hungry.
Are cops like traffic lights?
Theres a new traffic circle near me. No lights, no stop sign. People work it out. Moves faster, better than it used to.
What would america be like with half the cops?
What if union busting came to the police?
What if drugs were legal, like in the old days? No profit in selling, no glamor. Just...not a crime.
Speed limits, if we cared could be computer regulated.
Malcolm gladwell talked about concentrating policing in small areas. Most crime happens predictably in very tight locations.
More police...more traffic lights..is that more safety?
I think the scariest part is angry cops and people whod otherwise be perps having no purpose.
Just an empty society filled with high testosterone undirected male energy. With nowhere to go.
No story of why they live.
We dont need another hero.
Maybe men are the problem.
Maybe female is the future.
This would involve reimagining society.
And i dont know if we have it in us
I cant picture america fundamentally changing.
I cant see an america not cruel and hard.
We are number one after all and nice guys dont finish no. 1.
I really love this crazy country.
We are just one long episode of lawnorder.
One long boot stomp in the face.
Vicious mma women fighters. We can be killers 2.
The law part of lawnorder changes.
And the order part can change too. Traffic lights become traffic circles.
But i dont see fundamental change ever.
Ive often thought the last 3 gov. employees in society will be a judge, a cop and an executioner.
Then the judge gets fired, the executioner gets laid off and the cop get overtime.
I think we are stuck forever as we are.
For my lifetime anyway.
If the people can be trusted with guns, what else can they be trusted with.
Freedom? Naah too dangerous.
I have a gut feeling that the social forces welling up are gonna make the 60s llook like nothing.
I have no idea what they are or where theyre headed.
Trump voters in 2016 were overwhelmingly over 50 per pew research foundation. Age 18 to 29, 28 perc for trump. 50plus, 52 perc trump.
Old people arent wise. They're stuck, and fearful and foolish. We are grateful to our ridiculous ancestors not because they were wise or strong, but because they suffered and struggled half blind and miserable to get us each where we are.
Its time for trump to go, for me soon to go, for you too.
When the old folk are swept away whats left in the wreckage.
I dont see anything better possible. But im confident 18 to 29 year olds do.
