Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Much has been said and written about the different reactions to the motorcycle gang shootings in Waco and the treatment of civil protesters in Ferguson and Baltimore.  Much sarcasm has been employed and too good effect.

But ultimately, it just makes me sad.  Because despite this critically different response from police to a known threat and a largely peaceful protest, it won't make a damned bit of difference on those whom they don't want it to make a damned bit of difference.
