Slouching Towards Chaos

In the Huffintgton Post, Janet Tavakoli has an essay entitled Third World America: 'Fast-Tracking to Anarchy'

To here credit, she sees the problems but, typical of anyone who gets published in the Huffington Post, doesn't see the causes and proposes the same remedies that haven't worked so far. It seems to be a common liberal desire to have someone else ride into town and save them from the bad guys. Sorry, Janet; real life is not a B western and Brad has left the building. The only savior you can rely on is yourself.

Denniger responds with some sensible ideas that might actually work in Janet's Heart Is In The Right Place -- all of which I predict will be ignored by the powers that be because, well, solutions that work will interfere with their power.

Chicago today could be a sister city to Fallujah

One has crooked officials, violent gangs with hooks deep in the government, ineffective law enforcement, crazy preachers screaming about the need to kill anyone who is different and a culture of corruption that has resisted all efforts to clean it up.

The other is a city in Iraq.
