What’s going on in Ferguson, MO tonite? I guess we will find out soon enough.
In the meantime I’ve been thinking about the charges of oppression and injustice shouted by many of the rioters. What do they mean by these words? What are they aiming at?…For awhile I was struggling with the definitions of these words as the rioters might think of them, and as I think of them.
Then I had an insight and shifted gears slightly.
And because the investigation into the death of Brown is still underway, I would like to put aside the possible misconduct or worse of the police in this particular case, and focus on the larger scene. Is it possible the protestors/rioters are identifying a problem, but misdiagnosing the cause of the problem – the oppression and injustice?
Perhaps at base the rioters should be confronting the Liberal/Left plantation of the past decades? Think of the death & decay in so many cities like Detroit …Chicago…the dependency promoted by failed poverty programs…the absence of fathers…the crime in so many neighborhoods. It IS a despairing situation.
The people in these cities may need to shake certain chains loose….turn away from certain longtime political patterns and TO themselves for true “hope and change”.
