"As a man sows... "

Thinking on the widely reported New Orleans looting in the aftermath of Katrina, Jerry Pournelle recalls this:

"When I was a lad there was a tornado in Tupelo, Mississippi, and one of the first headlines I can remember (I must have been about 4 at the time) was about National Guard and Army bayoneting and shooting looters. I didn't understand it, and my father had to explain the headline to me: what looters were, and why it was the job of the Army to stop people like that.

But that was in the 30's and it would not be politically correct now."

That was then.  This is now. A witness (well, bystander) to looting:

"To be honest with you, people who are oppressed all their lives, man, it's an opportunity to get back at society... "_1_

Meanwhile, police just stand by.

"...and opportunity to get back at society..."

Spread a Marxist class warfare, zero-sum model of society, inherit a "society" of Vandals.

Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind.

R'Cat seems to think along these same lines: "What the hell are you thinking?? Oh, that's right - uncivilized barbarians don't think, they pillage."
