I put this thought up because no one was making the obvious point and it bugged me.
Conservatives see a likelihood of violence under all three scenarios more than moderates and liberals do.
Of course they do, it’s why they’re philosophically conservative. “Unintended consequences” isn’t gibberish to them, as it apparently is to the left.
And word to the statists: if tax payers ever feel that physical measures are their only recourse to tyranny, their actions won’t be like the London rioters.
It won’t be mindless violence.
