Revolutionary Daily Thought

EXACTLY!!!

To paraphrase one of my favorites, the police are not a neutral force or referee in a society of competing interests. They are defenders of the status quo. They are defenders of the law regardless of how unjust any law may be. They are there to defend the rich, the powerful, and to maintain order. That is key. They are not out to defend justice, or protect citizens for that matter. They are there to maintain law and order, demanding blind obedience to laws that are unjust from inception.

“Historically, the most terrible things – war, genocide, and slavery – have resulted not from disobedience, but from obedience.”
― Howard Zinn
