I honestly don’t know what’s more distasteful, the scenes of unrest from the U.S. Capitol yesterday, or the tone deaf virtue signaling that followed. We’ll spend some time today on cause and effect as well as some of the bigger picture aspects many people seem to be missing.
For the sake of those who labor under the impression that the division we saw at the Capitol is purely about Trump or an election, it’s time for a reality check. Dr. Shanon Brooks points out that a lack of leadership has helped create the conditions that spawned yesterday’s outrage.
With all the emoting and political grandstanding taking place, it’s easy to forget what is really at stake. Judge Andrew Napolitano has an especially timely essay that spells out the presumption of liberty and why it underlies so many of the issues we’re currently facing.
