In Edward Banfield’s book, “The Un-Heavenly City”, published in long-ago 1968, the author stated that very often the reason criminals commit crimes is that the criminal mind can’t visualize punishment as a result of their criminal acts.
Whether Banfield was talking about criminals being too dumb to resist committing a crime or that their minds weren’t able to tie the crime and punishment together is not completely clear. But all of this makes little difference, because criminals will continue to commit crimes, so they need to be punished in order to protect the populace and maintain a fear-free society in which decent citizens can move about freely and can seek their own “pursuit of happiness“.
But our superior, wiser-than-thou, Ivy-League-educated, leftist Democrats took the case of punishment to new and dangerous levels by proposing that we should fire and disband all police forces, ignore criminal acts and release all criminals.
And now we realize that following the advice of far-left Democrats has led to the destruction of many of America’s formerly great cities, in which crime is completely out of control and the citizens of those cities are suffering greatly.
In light of this evidence, one might quickly arrive at the conclusion that current-day Democrats are burdened with criminal minds themselves, which would explain their own lack of ability to identify criminals and punish them, instead of allowing repeat offenders to roam free and commit more crimes, which then results in more suffering and pain for decent citizens. And when you include in the balance Democrat’s insistence that men compete in sporting events with women and girls, and that biological men can “chest-feed” babies and can become pregnant, it appears that political Democrats are insane, which may explain why they behave like criminals.
