The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

One of the fundamental flaws in a society that has a large public sector is the ability of those who participate to create a never-ending loop of "elite" university education leading to government service leading to elite private corporations leading to non-profits. Really, it is a mesh, because the path can lead from university to any of those preferred positions, and movement from point to point is easy, and obviously lubricated by the oceans of money pumped into the system by society, via taxes, and corporate and personal donations.

But it is also a closed system, and it defines the bubble that conservatives (on the outside) rail against. The assumption that all of its inhabitants are diligently working for the greater good, and that any flaws in the plan can be mitigated by...yup...more government action, more money, a different member of the elite running things. And that the reality on the ground is a temporary state of affairs.

In an otherwise interesting article, this writer is catastrophically ignorant of the real goal of the Soros-backed DAs across the country. It is obvious to some that the chaos and violence and crime and degradation that emerged from the actions of these Soros DAs was exactly the plan. Antonio Gramsci wrote the battle plan one hundred years ago!

George Soros's Bad Bet

However, it was at the height of his influence that the errors in Soros’s reasoning began to appear. Soros’s publicly stated premise was that the de-prosecution and decarceration reforms ushered in by his prosecutors would not degrade but in fact improve safety in American cities. That belief was a major miscalculation. In poor cities, homicides have spiked, including the largest single-year increase in American history in 2020, continued escalation in 2021, and lingering high rates of murder clustered in cities with progressive prosecutors even after the end of Covid restrictions. (Apologists who blame Covid for homicide increases should note that murders were rising in cities with progressive prosecutors before the pandemic hit.) In wealthy cities with Soros-backed prosecutors, like San Francisco and Austin, property crimes rose dramatically. Once-idyllic cities like Portland, now under the jurisdiction of Soros-backed chief prosecutor Mike Schmidt, have suffered from rising violent crime and property crime. Several progressive American cities, including Baltimore, Chicago, Boston, and Philadelphia experienced mass shootings during Fourth of July celebrations. Cities under the influence of Soros-backed prosecutors are less safe than a decade ago. The promise of increased safety was an illusion.

Soros also premised his experiment in criminal justice on the belief that his preferred reforms would benefit minorities and disadvantaged people in American cities. However, the main victims of the rising homicide rates have been black Americans. Moreover, as businesses have fled increasingly lawless urban centers, the remaining residents have lost both their jobs and their local businesses.


It's embarrassingly naive to assume that George Soros had any benevolent plan for his bought-and-paid-for DAs. He wanted a breakdown of society, and that is exactly what he got. That some of his pet politicians are being tossed out on their asses by a furious citizenry isn't even a setback. I assume he expected that some would be recalled or voted out, but that the damage to American society would be long lasting.

Soros is many things, but stupid isn't one of them.

Degrade society. Destroy confidence in the process. Create conditions in which the people do not trust the traditional systems and demand a change.

That is called a communist revolution, and we have seen the results in the Soviet Union, Communist China, Venezuela, Cuba; and those results are not pretty.

But America is the holy grail, and the efforts to destroy American Exceptionalism and drag us down into the muck with the government-dependent drones in socialist-lite countries across the globe are bearing fruit. It is a generations-long process, and while Soros will probably not live to see it succeed, his efforts are calculated, intelligent, and have been successful.
