A government that cannot maintain law and order, a government’s first duty, is not a government. From Vasko Kohlmayer at lewrockwell.com:
In the previous piece we argued that the upheaval that has been convulsing America in the last four months is a revolution in progress.
This revolution has been launched by American Marxists and its goal is seizure of power through the destabilization and demoralization of our society.
We must see these events for what they are and act accordingly. It is no exaggeration to say that this is a national emergency. To prevent Marxist radicals from taking over proper measures must be taken.
The most immediate and urgent need is to restore law and order. If government has any justification at all, it is to maintain the rule of law so that its citizens are safe in their persons and property. Any government that fails to keep law and order abrogates its most basic responsibility. Such government forsakes the very duty which is given as the main reason for its existence.
No society can function successfully without the rule of law. When the rule of law is absent civil society breaks down and violence and chaos inevitably follow. Lawless societies are ripe for takeover by criminal or revolutionary elements (which are often one and the same thing). Marxist revolutionaries have always been aware of this, which is why they have sought to foment chaos and turmoil in their target countries. It is in the midst of such societal disarray that they can rise to power. And after they succeed, they invariably unleash a reign of terror.
