Is the Left Using George Floyd to Impose a Police State?

    Like virtually all Americans, including cops and their family members, I was appalled by the footage we saw of George Floyd’s arrest. It tapped into an utterly primal fear, the terror of bullies. It reminded us how dangerous the modern state can be. This institution, between 1914 and 1990, intentionally murdered 170 million civilians, not including casualties of war. That’s why we must cling, bitterly or not, to our Second Amendment freedoms.

    Hearing Floyd croak “I can’t breathe” touched our guts with genuine empathy. It also echoed scenes we might recall from classic works exposing the evils of totalitarianism.

    Yes, 1984, of course. (“A boot, crushing a human face … forever.”)

    A convenient occurrence to lessen the powers of unions just a covid is being used with teachers. Who benefits? Think the new Technocratic age we have been told is being ushered in, the fourth industrial revolution as they call it where, technology will survey and reprogram society and schooling will become a one sided digital affair teaching information that leaves no room for questioning. Open mindedness and free speech are already being censored to the extreme in the last month. An ideal oppressive society going global.

    People often find after the fact that they have been used to bring about related but unfamiliar change. Will they be happy once electronic surveillance and reprogramming have replaced the current system of policing?
