Ferguson, America


The people have to want peace in order for the police to provide it. Kevin Williamson writes at National Review:

The first order of police work is, according to [Sir Robert] Peel, “to prevent crime and disorder, as an alternative to their repression by military force and severity of legal punishment.” The second principle is “to recognize always that the power of the police to fulfill their functions and duties is dependent on public approval of their existence, actions, and behavior, and on their ability to secure and maintain public respect.” He called this “policing by consent.” The policeman, in Peel’s view, was a citizen: “The police are the public and that the public are the police, the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.”

Police, no matter how well-armed, aren’t going to save Ferguson. Only the people can restore civic order. We saw how that failed in Iraq, how Potempkin democracy yielded to Muslim thugocracy (aka the caliphate).

Some people gasp at the comparison. They say:

“When I was watching the film footage coming out of Ferguson, it looked like it was in Baghdad or some other war-torn zone. Ferguson is a part of the United States of America. It’s not China. It’s not Russia. It’s not the Congo. It’s America.” –Rep. John Lewis

If so, then God save the republic, because it is rotten. Look at downtown Ferguson and tell me it’s not Iraq in the worst days of the insurgency. There’s no civil order to protect. The police are wasting their time. They should retreat and let it burn.

“Society cannot exist unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere, and the less of it there is within, the more of it there must be without.” –Edmund Burke

About Joseph Dooley

I’m 28 years old and I’ve been writing since I learned how to type. I grew up in Texas but I lived nearly 5 years in the belly of the liberal beast, Maryland. Through my writing, I hope to convince readers of the truth and help to reverse the suicidal momentum of the present. As Francis Schaeffer wrote: “Any ways in which the system is still working is largely due to the sheer inertia of the continuation of the past principles. But this borrowing cannot go on forever.” Check out my blog, "Life's complexity and mortal weight."

One thought on “Ferguson, America

  1. This country of the United States of America is going through moral decay and it did not start with @BarackObama but he has enhanced that decay by 90% at least. America can’t take any more of Obama leadership.Remember how many white people and black people came together when he won the Presidency. Most of us were #united and #happy about Obama winning the election. Those of us who did not vote for him, including me were very hopeful! Now if you will take a look at what his presidency has done in 6 years separating whites from blacks. Barack Obama has been disassembling America and the #Constitution from the moment he took office. The damage he has incurred upon this great nation at this time is “almost” irreversible and I say again “almost”. It is imperative for #TheRepublicans and the #Conservatives to win the #Senate in November. The United States of America can NOT take 2 more years of this UNGODLY, DECEPTIVE, DESTRUCTIVE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. As MARK LEVIN stated in his Book and on @SeanHannity “we must have TERM LIMITS in this country! NO
    COUNTRY NEEDS “CAREER POLITICIANS” that are OLD AND WORN OUT and just want something to do everyday. Let them go play golf the way Barack Obama does when he should be in the @WhiteHouse. Let them trade places! Read Marks book if you haven’t yet because it’s right on the “mark”. No pun intended lol. God bless the #Patriots and God bless #Israel and God bless the United States of #America always.
