I got yer Anarcho-Tyranny right here

Anarcho-Tyranny is when the State stops enforcing important laws and regulations (leading to anarchy) but cracks down on petty offenses (that's the tyranny).  You don't get a better example than this:
STOCKHOLM (FRIA TIDER). Owners of cars destroyed in the riots fined for parking illegally while police adopt non-intervention policy.

Since last Sunday, May 19, rioters have taken to the streets of Stockholm’s suburbs every night, torching cars, schools, stores, office buildings and residential complexes. Yesterday, a police station in Rågsved, a suburb four kilometers south of Stockholm, was attacked and set on fire.

But while the Stockholm riots keep spreading and intensifying, Swedish police have adopted a tactic of non-interference. ”Our ambition is really to do as little as possible,” Stockholm Chief of Police Mats Löfving explained to the Swedish newspaper Expressen on Tuesday.


Swedish parking laws, however, continue to be rigidly enforced despite the increasingly chaotic situation. Early Wednesday, while documenting the destruction after a night of rioting in the Stockholm suburb of Alby, a reporter from Fria Tider observed a parking enforcement officer writing a ticket for a burnt-out Ford.
Europe is screwed.

Why is it that few news reports tell the whole truth? That the "youths" and "riotors" are arabs, and middle easterners and north africans....and Muslims.

Pure gold, man...pure gold.

Play PC games, get riots... And refuse to put those riots down? Standby for REAL problems!

Wow. There is so much wrong there that if you listen carefully, you can hear Nero's violin playing softly in the background.

I read also that the police have made several arrests related to the riots. Unfortunately the people arrested were "vigilantes" who had the temerity to protect their property.

The so called vigilantes included several "right wing" extremists.

Interestingly, the rioters are all described as "youts" of no particular description who apparently are incensed that Sweden won't give them more free stuff.

Unlike the Korean shop keepers in the LA riots, none of the vigilantes have AR15s with which to defend themselves.

Europe is indeed screwed until the point where they decide to fight back. If they ever reach that point.

And so are we, TOTWTYTR, and for the same reasons. It will take a little longer, is all.

I present the recent Boston lockdown as the direction we are trending.
