I recently read a Marxist Prof in Canada saying that objections to Antifa punching people were as invalid as objections to “taking the knee”, because both were necessary reactions to the state abdicating its Duty towards its citizens.
Even if I concede that the state has abdicated its Duty, I am not relegating the state’s monopoly on violence to vigilantes, even if they’re punching other vigilantes. Street thugs are even less accountable or subject to an ombudsman than cops are.
And yes, OP’s employer is less accountable than cops are, too.
What is it with the States?
