I think it started in Miami Beach. 1981. The Twinkie Defense. Teenager Ronny Zamora had brutally murdered an 84-year-old grandmother; his lawyer pleaded that poor Ronny could not distinguish fantasy from reality because of an overconsumption of refined sugar.
The Hostess cakebaking operation was to blame, and in a larger sense America itself, for its careless and destructive dietary habits.
1981. Not only were most of those manning [personing?] the current Children’s Crusade for Black Trans Lives Matter for Social, Economic, Racial, Sexual and Fundamental, Environmental and Just Mental Justice Reasons not even born yet, neither were some of their parents.
In 1981, the horrors of the real world and mankind’s most murderous century were still quite real. As America still struggled with a decade-long recession, the Soviet Union still existed, with its gulags and economic ruin. China was still under the thrall of its own Communist Party and its forced abortions, and of course the shadow of the murderous Chairman Mao.
And on Miami Beach itself, many of the last survivors of the Holocaust lived out the rest of days that providence had granted them [and mysteriously so few others].
The world that our current Children’s Crusade is protesting in 2020 is not that world. The world they are inherit is a much better world, at least for now. A world comfortably removed from the consequences of man’s true evil, the evils that reside in his very nature--not that the evil that men foster simply out of carelessness, inattention, and pique.
George Floyd’s death was not a product of any system, except perhaps a system that permits sometimes vain and intemperate men to carry our guns for us to keep us safe from the genuinely evil men. Humanity has not yet come up with an alternate system or candidate class except the military draft. But there is no assurance or statistical proof that a random pool of draftees are any less capable of atrocities than volunteers.
“Defund The Police” is a Twinkie World based on nothing but fantasy. So too is the economic program that is accompanying the current Children’s Crusade, that a person will work as hard for someone else’s family as hard as he will work for his own.
Zamora’s “Twinkie Defense” failed in court. He was found guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. We can only hope that the jury in November will come to the same verdict. The NEW Minneapolis is already becoming uninhabitable.
