Falsely accused of a gun crime, things you need to know.
Watch Commander Vimes has some conversations with himself at times about the Beast that waits back in the dark; Lawdog has a take on the same.
True; it's a lot easier to blame 'gun culture' than actually TALK ABOUT THE FRIGGIN' PROBLEMS.
Beginning of reform: stop letting high-school and college athletes get away with crap that would have any other student thrown out and possibly thrown in jail.
And get blacks to stop this shit of crapping on anyone 'acting white' by, oh, actually trying to learn something in school.*
Social and asocial violence; well worth reading.
Regardless of the age, the culture, or the social conditions, there is ALWAYS a percentage of the general populace that embraces the totalitarian dynamic. There is always someone in our neighborhood, in our workplace, and within our family that finds vindication or advantage in supporting the state, even if the state has turned viciously criminal. They are not only useful idiots; they are conscious participants in the process of pacification and enslavement of their own society. They understand their role perfectly, and they enjoy what they do.
And a lot of them go by the label 'progressive'. Because they don't have the honesty or integrity to state exactly what they are.
*Yes, that'll get me labeled racist or something by stupid people; well, they probably wouldn't like me anyway. And it's true, that kind of crap has hurt blacks more over the last generation or so than the KKK could have.
