Why are protesters in Baltimore attacking innocent people and businesses?
They want greater equality. They believe Blacks have not seen the same level of success as Whites in America. Are they justified in thinking this? Yes.
By every measure of the human welfare index American Blacks are far behind their White counterparts. Whether it's school performance, criminal records, overall wealth, representation in power positions, disrupted families, life expectancy, or even the rate of swimmers in each population Blacks have it worse in America.
Blacks, justifiably, are angry. Their society promised them equality, but in 2015 they find themselves a permanent criminal underclass. They have taken to the streets to seize equality by stealing from other races (preserving only 'Black owned businesses'). They want to drag everyone down to their level by burning assets and turning their city landscape into one shared ghetto.
The Blacks and their supporters have the moral high ground in this situation. They possess it because most of the population of America has been brainwashed to regard equality as the highest moral good. For the last two decades in every history class around the country students have been taught and retaught that whoever fights for equality is the hero of the historical narrative. MLK, Lincoln, and the feminists are the heroes of the human story . . . or so Americans have been told.
Can the police win against the protesters? Probably not. Though they are the only thing standing between total anarchy and civilization they are inevitably the villains of these riots because they are the defenders of oppression, and oppression is always evil . . . or so Americans has been told.
Glorifying equality as a universal good has produced dangerous consequences for America. America might once have been the god that could deliver on even the most outrageous promises (the creation of complete equality), but today Americans are witnessing the failure of their god. It turns out even mighty America could not erase racial differences. Even the 'propositional nation' could not ignore the work of another God . . . the One who made Blacks and Whites unequal, the One who created genetic differences in intelligence and capability.
America has two options: it can devolve to the level of it's lowest common denominator, or it can abandon equality.
The only way America can still deliver on it's promise of equality is to drag everyone down to the level of the Blacks. If everyone is equally poor and unintelligent than everyone is equal. Equality, then, will come at the price of turning the country into a third world pseudo-state. And even this option is probably not likely to succeed because Whites and Asians are intelligent enough to play the system and escape the consequences. The pursuit of equality will become a perpetual revolution involving a constant witch hunt for anyone who is creating inequality (i.e. using one's God given talents to better themselves beyond the level of African squalor).
The second option is to abandon the idea of creating equality altogether. To simply admit that the pursuit of physical and intellectual equality between the races is absurd and impossible. By doing this, Americans can free themselves from investing crippling levels of wealth and time into something which simply cannot be done.
America gave it's best. It spent trillions of dollars on Black schools, pumped trillions more into welfare programs, and instituted an unlimited number of public and private programs designed to lift Blacks out of poverty. It all failed . . . miserably. Now America must accept it's mistakes and move on. That's how life works. That's how people and nations grow.
The chances of this happening (America learning) are probably not very good. At this point, Whites (the true American nation) have largely lost control of their country. The youngest generation is already majority non-White and national politicians pander to brown voting blocs to attain political power.
The lesson will not be learned by the government of the United States of America, then, but by the millions of Whites who still live in America. They must begin to wake up and realize that equality is not going to happen, and that their decisions about who to hire, who to date or marry, who to include in their institutions (read churches) must be based not upon some bizarre failed concept of 'everyone is equal' but on hard reality. In the long run, racial and ethnic strife will tear the country apart. It's already begun. Organic communities based upon religion and ethnicity will be the building blocks of these communities.
The future does not belong to 'equality.' Invest in something real.
