UPDATE 8/27/20: Referring back to The Curley Effect, the Leftist politicians actively supporting the laying waste to their own cities again makes sense. In a rational universe, even the Trump-hating mayors and governors would’ve welcomed law enforcement aid from the Fed. But not when anarchy and public desperation are strategies for attaining more power. Drive out the rich & productive and totally control what’s left.
ORIGINAL POST 10/19/15: “James Michael Curley, a four-time mayor of Boston, used wasteful redistribution to his poor Irish constituents and incendiary rhetoric to encourage richer citizens to emigrate from Boston, thereby shaping the electorate in his favor. As a consequence, Boston stagnated, but Curley kept winning elections.”
For concrete examples, pay a visit to today’s rotting Detroit, wobbly California, contemporary France, Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago, most other large Inner Cities, well underway now nationwide thanks to Obama.
Sad to say for the socialist parasite, it needs the productive capitalist to survive. Not so vice versa.
