Monty Pelerin’s World
George Floyd’s death was unnecessary. It should never have happened, even if he were a dangerous criminal resisting arrest (apparently he was neither). His death became the excuse for demonstrations. The fatal mistake occurred when legal demonstrations were turned into riots.
Why This is a Fatal Mistake
In this polarized world, politics drives everything. The Democrat Party, desperate for traction, will do anything to win the upcoming election. (Well, anything except policies and programs that might attract voters.) Fixated on the fact that Trump beat Hillary, which they just know was not possible, they have done no legislating (perhaps a good thing) and proposed no new policies (ditto). Since the election, their focus has been on removing Trump from office any way possible.
