Throughout the summer of 2020, the United States was wracked by civil unrest, unlike anything we had witnessed since the mid-1960s when the anti-war movement and militant elements of the Civil Rights Movement created a perfect storm of riots bordering on outright insurrection on campuses and in city streets. The two periods have more than a superficial resemblance. In both cases, social unrest, based on real or imagined grievances, was translated into street protests. In both cases, a hyper-violent fringe element attempted to create havoc to draw law enforcement into open conflict with the demonstrators. If you’ve studied communist National Liberation Movements and Maoist revolutionary doctrine, this is not a shock. It is very basic stuff. You send your guys into a legitimate protest. You commit arson. You loot stores. The worst elements in the protest join in. You attack cops and provoke confrontations. Ideally, a bunch of civilians are dead on the ground when it is over, and the next protest crowds are larger and angrier. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Even though we were widely assured that the protests were mostly peaceful, there was scant evidence that was the case. Nearly everywhere the Black Lives Matter protesters showed up, businesses were burned and looted. When the pudgy hormone-befuddled Antifa “black bloc” types showed up, the violence was even more extreme.

Most of the more severe demonstrations took place in Democrat-dominated cities located in Democrat-dominated states. The civil power looked on approvingly as riot and mayhem became the order of the day. As an acquaintance of mine who studies the supplanting of civil authorities by the drug cartels in Mexico noted, there are ominous parallels.

1)      The state enters into tacit alliance with, or acquiesces to, a criminal enterprise.
2)      The state vacates the security space versus the criminal enterprise.
3)      Bereft of the protection of the state — no police, no prosecutions, no military — the citizenry arms and defends itself.
4)      If the citizenry is unsuccessful at defending itself, the state stays silent.
5)      If the citizenry is successful at defending itself, the
