The proposal is to do away with the police department and adopt a “transformative new model of public safety,” whatever that is supposed to mean. As Herschel says, thank you, Antifa, for publicly demonstrating why the 2A is so relevant. And how the “progressive model” is insane as a model for government. Near five centuries ago, Hobbes laid out the core purpose of government: providing security. We all give up the legal right to victimize others, in return for them giving up the same, and government comes into being as a way of enforcing that. And, P.J. O’Rourke reminds us, after that comes putting out fires and fixing potholes in the road.
