The Murder of Breonna Taylor Isn’t about Racism

It’s about cops being out of control. It’s about the evil and destructive policy of “qualified immunity”. It’s about the evil practice of no-knock raids, and the expectation that people sit quietly and allow violent intruders to invade their homes without opposition. It’s about the demand that you sit and die peacefully instead of shooting back at bad guys who are kicking in your door with guns drawn. And it’s about prohibition.

New Information Will Change Minds

My beliefs have changed since I was young. In every case, I believed I was right until new information made me change my mind. Afterward, I once again believed I was right until the next time something made me change my mind again. I never much regretted changing my mind, but I occasionally wished what I believed before had been right. The old belief was more comfortable or comforting than the new belief. If I could still believe what I believed before I wouldn’t have changed my belief.
