We’re worried about racism or poverty, so we pull down statues. We’re concerned about terrorism so we confiscate fliers’ charm bracelets with miniature gun-charms on them. We worry about the economy, so we print more money and enact more regulations.
Since these actions don’t bring about the desired result, the problems they’re intended to address continue to grow and fester. And the response, usually, is to double-down on the responses that don’t work.
That’s crazy. But these are the Crazy Years.
