The federal government is finally sending forces to Portland to stop the violent destruction that’s been taking place for weeks.
Crowds of people are upset and are clamoring for even more welfare to be withdrawn instead.
A few years ago, only the most hardcore libertarian websites would argue that it’s a great thing to let gangs of violent goons roam around assaulting, looting, murdering and robbing without any state involvement. The market should sort it all out, they said. Those who can hire private bodyguards or move to a gated community should be safe. And everybody else should be screwed.
Now this is a mainstream liberal / leftist position.
