How do we make sense of the nonstop craziness going on in our society? Is there a common denominator, or is it all happening randomly?
Well, it’s unlikely that multiple sectors of society just happen to be imploding at the same time without some causal forces behind them. And you don’t have to be a garden-variety conspiracy theorist to realize that some kind of intelligent design is at work here.
I personally think we’re in the throes of spiritual warfare. But instead of expanding on that, I’ll just address the human agency that might be facilitating this chaos, because human beings are advancing it regardless of whether unseen forces are ultimately behind it.
I know of no one who disputes that George Floyd’s murder was outrageous and inexcusable. I know of no one who disputed it after seeing the horrible video of the event. President Donald Trump himself condemned it within hours.
I also know of no one who objects to peaceful protests about this horrid incident and others like it. All fair-minded people abhor such misconduct toward anyone.
But it is not fair to condemn all cops for the actions of a statistically small minority. And it is lunacy to dismantle law and order because of them.
