EDITORIAL:         When Governors Refuse to Govern

 

Government’s monopoly on the use of force is justified by the duty to protect the governed. That is the primary justification for the very existence of human government. The mayors of Portland, Seattle and some other places seem to have forgotten their high school civics to the point that they have restrained their police from performing that function in the face of rioting mobs with which they politically sympathize. They have refused, in other words, to uphold the rule of law for their own political purposes. If these officials are reelected, that will signal that their cities have discarded the rule of law, preferring when it suits them, mob rule. History is not a good advertisement for that, which may be one reason for the mob’s vigor in trashing it.
