This proposal has been based on the simple notion that the Left’s field military leadership (who I call “Comprachicos”), their entire ground strategy is keyed around the presence and interference provided by these tens of thousands of non-weapon wielding screaming banshees. They carry out several tactical missions that have proved very successful, growing in size and destructiveness since 2016.
Their effectiveness is because they are “allowed” to stay on the field of battle for, while they are violating several laws, there are so many of them, those laws are no longer enforced, especially in permissive urban jurisdictions where they have been making their trial runs. This, with positive media coverage, is aimed at conditioning the public to the ordinariness, the new normal even, of these kinds street crimes, eventually coming to a down town near you.
(It will do me absolutely no good here to warn the Comprachico field leadership, that once their mission has been accomplished, and the “New Amerika” politically secured by the new political regime, their street antics will no longer be needed, and their field soldiers will be asked to disperse and go home…”Party’s over”. Only many won’t, (the psychology of why they won’t is what we look into here), and what happens next will likely be a quiet, secret visit to the Comprachico leadership by the new regime, and they will all disappear in some manner or another. This was the fate of many Bolsheviks after the Russian civil war ended in 1921-22, their names forever lost, and those better-known members of the Sturmabteilung (SA) whose street thuggery had carried Adolf Hitler to power in 1933. It was the next year, and they had still not disbanded, so it was called “the Night of the Long Knives”, killing them all. There was no longer any need for them. Those who could adapt were given nice uniforms and directed traffic and escorted old ladies across the street, but those who would not adapt, like Russia, just sort of disappeared. Hitler actually got to take a bow to the German people for having restored order to their streets. That’s how it works, Comprachicos. The new Dzerzhinsky will have no need for your skills.)
So while it may appear as if we want to punish these unruly children, all I am suggesting is that we finally get around to sending them to their rooms without supper, or grounding them for a month, only15 years past due, turning an ordinary tonsillectomy at 12 into a much more painful procedure at 22.
But maybe, just maybe, we could also be saving their lives, knowing what may lie ahead once they become unnecessary, and their antics no longer tolerable in the brave new world they had helped create.

Professionally, I’m unqualified to provide a psychological diagnosis of these children. But since the 1980s I’ve been treated to “experts” from the psychology community giving armchair analyses of the diseased minds, in succession, of Ronald Reagan, George W Bush, and Donald Trump, simply by observing them speak on television, without ever having had a single consultation, while never once commenting on the extraordinary public misconduct of both Clintons, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and now Joe Biden, without so much as a “there’s something strange there going on there”. In fact, from their quiet, I’d say they are inferentially saying that everything has been “normal” with these people, proving only that their professions have telegraphed a complete sellout to the political establishment, including ripping out over 100 years of medical scholarship about sexual predation, homosexuality, transgenderism, even insanity, all to suit a political direction the world has been down before. If Communist China and the old USSR are any clue, these professions may even suffer the same fate as the Comprachicos once a new regime is fully in power. Useful idiots.
But while unqualified in their science, I can still tell a horse from a mule, so common sensically I know the value of a spanking, with a 49 year old and 46 year old leukemia survivor to stand as proof. And as a survivor of two broken noses (both for lying) and the digestive issues associated with swallowing a couple of bites of Ivory Soap (for cussing), and even an injury from a minor felony while I was in college which I had to nurse on my own, lest I be expelled, which was the standard procedure at universities in the 1960s, I think I qualify as a man who’s seen a thing or two. I can speak to these things as an ordinary, un-rich, common citizen would view them.
More generally I’m speaking of providing second chance for spoiled grown children by proposing a rigid, “No, don’t go there” deterrent to their ever opening certain doors again…which none dare call “humility”, a thing they probably had never been taught before. Our wonderful wealth-producing society has provided its brats all sorts of avenues to play out their petty games of brattiness for generations without ever having to break a single law with the expectation they could get away with it. But open and notorious lawlessness is a bridge too far and our larger society, 80% to the gilded class’s 20%, has to draw a line in the sand.
What I am suggesting here is Door #2, the easy path.
Your don’t have to be Freud to know something is wrong when you see a picture of a crowd like this one featured, and it’s not caused by a visit to Yankee Stadium by the Beatles, which itself was a partly self-induced, partly group-induced hysteria. I can recall a lot of Groupie behavior although the girls on the rope lines of the 60s were less likely to be drugged out. By the 1970s some kinds of music and drugs had become synonymous and the innocence had vanished, but still social norms held on. What we are seeing now is post-80s behavior, although many of those children we see today were sired by parents from those 60s and 70s. (There were a lot of mother-daughter duos at the big anti-Trump parade during his Inauguration festivities in February, 2017.)
What we have been seeing in accelerating size and scope going back before Trump, has been an intentional attempt at the university level to indoctrinate/condition students toward certain political behavior. (The world view is mere catechism.) This has been the case at least since Barack Obama first came to America Occidental in the early 80s, the same age as David Hogg today. (We’ll see how young David turns out in a few years.)
My purpose here is to forcibly deter these screaming banshees from the field of battle under the assumption that the Comprachicos’ tactical plan will seriously change or fall apart if they are absent.
The presence of scores of non-combatant haranguers, carrying no weapons, breaking no windows, setting no fires, and just being in the way, makes crowd control and arrests of the felonies more difficult even for police who still want to do their jobs though restricted by internal rules of engagement.
*(We regularly see footage where dozens are gathered, creating roadblocks (a crime), verbally threatening people (a crime), disregarding police (a crime) and then hear later that only five were arrested. Essential facts not reported for citizens’ edification: Charges: felonies, misdemeanors?, bail, bond, release, further disposition, arraignment?, and Demographics; Sex, Race, Age, (Mug-shots would be nice)
Since these are gathered irregularly around the country, and to my knowledge not collected, collated and reported, citizens have no idea if there is any justice in what they are seeing. (There is much people can learn, Mr Barr, with a simply timely report every week or so. Just don’t ask the CDC to prepare it.
We do know anecdotally there have been thousands of criminal acts since the death of George Floyd. And often they were tied to perfectly legal events, such as marches, many of which stayed within the boundaries of their permits. (Here in Richmond the lawlessness begins after the march concludes.
My proposal is for a trial run of just a few, and from the more conspicuous riot venues, where, select teams of federal agents can arrest no more than ten (10) and spirit them away. I understand these are still daily (nightly) occurrences.
At the time of arrest, after patting down for weapons, pocketknives, etc, all that is taken from them should be their cellphones, which should then be turned off. My recommendation is they not be spoken to for the duration of a drive to an undisclosed location. Expect a little bit of fear to seep in when they screech and no one acknowledges them.
They should be taken before a Panel and advised they are being held for observation under the authority of Executive Order such-and-such. Nothing more.
Then spirit them off, without benefit of phone call, to a lawyer, on mom or dad, then give them a few days to sit and stew, screech and rant, pull out their hair, (as the drugs wear off) without benefit of a friendly shoulder to whine on or even a piece of furniture to throw.
Standard protocols: inventory their property and bag it. From their ID’s and inventory, begin a dossier, which will be noted daily from observing daily during their incarceration. My general belief is that you will note changes in behavior quickly and often the first few days if they are locked in solitary confinement, unable to speak to anyone; their buddies, even custodial staff, who will merely watch and take notes. Dealing with the quiet will be their greatest test.
Legal authority for GITMO was apart from the Patriot Act and was established by executive action in 2001 and tribunal commissions were created. Considering the duration and type of observation suggested here, from 10 to 30 days, and being a lawyer, I don’t think lawyers should be involved, nor pettifogging bureaucrats. A panel of three Marine Corps sergeants or retired police officers from cities not over 30,000 should be able to handle the rubber stamping process, just to insure that one of the arrestees weren’t just out walking their dog and snatched up by mistake.
Inasmuch as this panel should be the last human voices these kids will hear for the next several days, they should be told by the senior Panel officer as to why they are there.
(Even these sort of executive orders can be abused. Donald Trump is the only executive I know who could assume authority and then, when the threat had passed (surely within 4 years), rescind and mothball it.)
Temporary Insanity and its Treatment
My thesis comes from a man named John Batt, who was both a law professor and licensed psychiatrist. I had known him as an undergrad, playing pickup basketball games at the old Alumni gymnasium across the street from the bookstore where I worked. In three years of law school I never once saw Dr Batt, although I did hear about what he was doing, much of it abroad. Many of the liberals (in those days not a dirty word), thought he was a kook, since he had a theory about how to “cure” psychopaths. In the late 80s I met up again with John while working with a scientist-colleague of his on developing some fuels for the Third World. He remembered me on sight, which was nice, and we spoke of many things including his theory for curing psychopaths. I never read a single treatise he had ever written.
So what follows is from memory.
John called his process a “psychological lobotomy” and had traveled to Europe, Sweden I think, to do his experiments as they were not legal in the US. Of course, he was working with serious criminals where the death penalty was not allowed, so his circumstances and purposes were different than mine now. What he wanted to do was make them so docile, “putty in your hands” (a term he used), that they could join the general prison population without incident.
Our purpose here is far less dark. All we want to do is cause these brats to act less bratty in public.
John employed one treatment we came to know after 911, and that was a type of water-boarding. I have no idea if he had anything to with America’s later use of water-boarding, but in Europe they would take a psychopath and bind him, then drop him into a swimming pool long enough that the Involuntary body response would set in, then suddenly bring him up, thus saving his life. John said it doesn’t take many times before the patient’s fear of going back to that watery place becomes paramount in his mind.
Some say this is torture. I won’t debate that. But what it does create is a mental picture of a place the patient never wants to go back to. I think a similar thing can be achieved with spoiled bratty kids in a small 6 x 8 padded cell a toilet and a futon, and a slot through the door to pass meals through. No water required.
At some point, measured in days, our little “Lone Haranguers” (taken from Johnny Hart’s comic strip, “The Wizard of Id”) will go through some observable changes, beginning as rage and teat-fittery then slowly devolving into insecurity and fear.
The video will tell us if they talk to themselves, pace, or just sit staring at the wall. What they may be saying to themselves is important only to them. But most of them, and there is clinical evidence to show this, will never want to have to go through this again. They will not necessarily give up any of their core vanities or beliefs, although I would wager, by 2040, most will not be attending the Antifa/BLM 20th anniversary reunion in Minneapolis.
Another of Batt’s “cures” was to take all the tokens of the psychopath’s physical culture that his narcissistic persona identified with; clothes, hats, shoes, jewelry, even a car or artwork, then force that patient to watch each of those items be destroyed, again letting him know there was never any going back. (He spoke specifically of taking sledge hammers to a Ferrari.)
In looking at our featured photo, the only thing I believe would be common to all of them, and also not subject to a home search warrant, would be the cellphone, which seems to have become a universal pacifier to two generations now. You might find all sorts of other special objects worthy for study once you go through the packs so many carry over their shoulders, but the cellphone would be primo.
My view is that with even a hundred as lab rats, within a few weeks our government could publish an inventory of behavior, not unlike an alcoholic or drug addict, learned from what these kids carry, and why they are important to them and of course, their behavior swings as they rage, then cry, then curl into a ball and suck their thumbs.
Having to watch your lifeline cellphone smashed into a hundred pieces with a hammer and then deposited into a dumpster could be the major shock to reality, provided there is ample quiet time to reflect on their loss…a loss they never want to visit again.
* * * * *
I think I can make a good “group temporary insanity” case for these spoiled children, whether drug-induced (more than you likely know) or just plain rich kid old teat fittery, but set off, like Pavlov, with certain bells and whistle.
If this alarms you because it sounds a lot like the re-education gulags the Left had planned for we Christians if ever that day should come, it’s not. I envision no more than a 30-day lock-up. No counseling, no therapy sessions like AA. My simple recommendation is solitary confinement, padded cells, and a toilet. Not unlike being grounded and sent to their room without supper, it may take 2-3 days before any of them realizes no one outside that door gives a shit what they think about anything. Of course they will be studied. Then they will be given all their clothes and valuables back, and returned to where they were picked up with a phonecard to call mom or dad.
My guess is that most will go home and not really change (reform) except perhaps in the deeper recesses of their minds. The only lesson we’re trying to impart here, to borrow from a 1940s cartoon character, “if you dood it, you get a spanking.” Most of them will decide not to dood it anymore…only to save face they may never tell even their closest confidants. (Covered in Part IV, I briefly outline the 5-people contained in every person, and this is one of those lessons, much like our own private humiliations, is known only to ourselves.)
I really see no legal barrier short of legislation that would prohibit the use of such a “Sanity Observation Program.” Obama wanted to close Gitmo but opted not too in part the people of the United States actually liked the idea. He bowed to the 80%.
The 20-80 Rule
Again, as mentioned here, there is a distinct class difference between where most of these spoiled brats come from and the rest of America. I have what I call an 20:80 rule, which varies from state to state, and the very core of the coup or revolt we are witnessing in America today is built on that same 20:80 demographic, elites versus common folk. In all the rest of the world the 20% have been in charge, under a variety of political non de plumes, for over 5000 years. America, just 233 years old, is the only blemish on their scorecard. They want us out of the way, perhaps now more than any at other previous time, because the world does appear to be hastening, only against them, not for them. Should America fall they will finally have to stop being nice and patronizing to the 80% in their own countries.
The fall of America represents all their dreams come true.
