A pandemic virus, an economic disaster, some wars, hordes of illegal immigrants, lots of socialistic-globalist thinking, some old...newly revisited ethnic problems, social unrest and rioting.
The world has been pretty much the same for 5-6 thousand years now... during the 1940s and '50s America, subversive, Black or Communist protests, publications, and speech were all not tolerated by the government as being seditionist and incitement.
after American society accepted, radical thinking and public demonstration back during the 1960s we began devolving into this current 2020 social mess.
the First Amendment to the United States Constitution protect your right to free expression. nobody can restrict your rights simply because they don't like what you say.Young or old; anarchist or evangelical; pacifist or hawk; Mormon or Muslim; these rights apply to you. It doesn't matter whether you're a U.S. citizen, whether you're of voting age, or whether you speak English. Free-speech rights are for everybody. The First Amendment protects your right to express your opinion, even if it's unpopular. You may criticize the President, the Congress, or the chief of police without fear of retaliation. But this right doesn't extend to libel, slander, obscenity, "true threats," or speech that incites imminent violence or law-breaking. If you grab a megaphone during a riot and yell "shoot the cop" or "loot the shop," you may reasonably expect trouble.
Freedom of Speech / Right to Assemble
The right to petition the government for a redress of grievances guarantees people the right to ask the government to provide relief for a wrong through litigation or other governmental action. It works with the right of assembly by allowing people to join together and seek change from the government.

life inside “boundaries” or a moral norm (or a religious norm, whichever suits you). That’s what actually makes us humans.
That new awakening (the "true" founding) of America began with JFK.
All that has happened since, can be examined and understood easily..."if"... anyone wished to explain away the SNCC, CORE, Black Panthers, Chicano, Nation of Islam, Hippies, BLM, Me Too, AOC, China, 1619, Press 2, ANTIFA and Twin Towers intermeshings... but, in 2020 no one would ever have the interest... much less take the time.
-----------------------------------------Before entering, we have all stood there before the big "Rules and Regulations" sign posted at the gate... no one "reads" it, and most people do not even remember "seeing" it... these 10 foot high boldly printed lists of rules have always intrigued me, a lot of time, cost and referencing went into creating that sign (Rule # 8, or Ordinance # 304.6 c, or somesuch), and they seem to always be well thought out.
I have often asked "why all of the rules ?" and heard "we run a tight ship here", or "you have to be clear about rules" or even "sometimes we have to 'show' people the rules"... with all 25 of these rules... the next question I asked was "How do you enforce all of these rules ?" and then, after not (ever) seeing an enforcer on site... "who... enforces these rules ?"...
Begging the final question of: "Why have rules if you are not going to enforce them ?"
The answer is: "We don't enforce them, hell, even those of us who work here don't follow them... they are just there for insurance, lawsuits, and legal-intent protection... "should" we ever "need" to enforce the law, or CYA".
So, you go past the sign, sit down, and watch all of these rule-breakers freely doing as they wish (un-controlled, at will and without any fear of reprimand), it reminds you of Dad putting you on a month's restriction, then Mom letting you go... or, "knowing" the police do not work on Tuesdays, or "who cares ?", "I don't have to follow the rules so f__k" off !".
a lack of self discipline, ignoring the rules, Unenforcement, all create a disrespect of authority and validate not yielding to the orders of a superior, or enforcement, or penalties for disobedience.
Any/all segments of any society needs rules... many are written on signage (as reminders and CYA), but most are common sense, ingrained, and universal no-brainers. (bathing, appropriate dress, social mores, drive on the right side, stop signs, traffic signals, speed limits, being the most common).
Beginning at home as a child in a family, all societies work, play, live and relax inside a snow-globe of the alternative is anarchy-chaos and feral apocalyptic. To make this work, one must have the "ability" to accept rules, and be self disciplined enough to respect authority, and obedience to laws.
Beginning at home as a child in a family, is called "anarchy. discipline requires that subordinates always obey orders of their superiors avoid punishment, to maintain some sort of order in society and to prevent absolute chaos.
The Fourth Amendment allows it. This is the objective, reasonableness standard. The Fourth Amendment Reasonableness Requirement subordinates always obey orders of their superiors
I view ordinances against jaywalking as a legitimate exercise of the state or city's power. Even if I knew that I would not be caught, I would still not want to break a law. The thoughts expressed herein are the opinions of the author.
Laws protect our general safety, and ensure our rights as citizens against abuses by other people, by organizations, and by the government itself. We have laws to help provide for our general safety. These exist at the local, state and national levels, During the now 120-day Oregon Covid19, US lockdown, and these BLM protests, as I sit here in a remote and rural pacific Northwest coastal town watching streaming news feeds from big cities all around America, and have the usual email confusion and questions coming in (especially from our Balkan, East European and Indian readers), I am forced to analyze what the hell is going on ?.
command authority ne dictionary defines discipline as “training which produces obedience or self-control, often in the form of rules and punishments if these are broken.” Of course, discipline should never be unreasonable or abusive. On the other hand, it should not be vague or inconsequential,
discipline obeys rules and codes of conduct, using punishment to correct disobedience So, before responding back to the questions, I took time to deep-think about my own views of what "my" America is, and what it stands for, here in my town, and abroad, and "who I am" as an analyst and player in this 2020 time.
What happened was, my simple post went awry after realizing that most of America is clueless, uninformed, and downright ignorant of our past (disrespectful would be too polite). Seemingly everyone grew up in a hippy parented, permissive lily white suburb, actually met a black person once (in a store), and therefore understands ethnicity, and the history of American industrialization and inner-city (as an "expert"), I did not mention their well traveled international foreign experiences gained at the Jade Mountain in St. Lucia.
I align with places I grew up, lived, colleged and worked at... (Minneapolis/St. Paul, Milwaukee, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Buffalo, Pittsburg, Philadelphia, Baltimore, New Orleans, Houston, Memphis, St. Louis, and others)... All are East of the Mississippi, North of the Mason-Dixon, in the North Coast and North East, "not" in corn, cowboy, salmon or surf states.
After seeking out the TV news live-stream for each location, I listen to the (primarily younger) reporter, and the "supposed" local man-on-the-street (whose accent betrays him), analysis and interpretations of whats going on, and why. I read the web postings, the written analysis, and especially pan through the "Comments" sections below.
Here is where it goes afoul...
There is a very beat to death, rotting horse carcass that will attest to the multitude of times I refer to having grown up in a arrogant pro-American industrial North coast ethnic-religious-intellectualy diverse city overloaded with enthusiasm, pride, and a kick-their-asses competitive spirit.
Collectively... you are exposed, to the problematics of mixed ethnicity, there is no opting out, or avoiding it (unless you are rich), you are hated, despised, taunted, and shamed for your social status, your religion, your physique, hair and skin tone, your clothes, and your house by anyone different than yourself.
This situation has gone on since the cave days, this tribe hates that tribe, there are so many similarities to the conflicts that any "intelligent" person (big point there!)... can research history and count the whys and whos of conflict and see they are all identical.
I was sat down and told at a very young age.
Realize here in your own neighborhood how it really is... everyone is the same race, nationality, religion, we are all about as rich as each other, and we all eat the same food,
most of us even look alike, we mostly dress the same, and we all have names that people laugh at.
you see and hear people fighting, arguing, yelling a each other, and we have families that will not talk to other families, you have happy people and sad, and sometimes mean people here, this is home, we all sleep here, and understand our neighborhood.
When we go to school, or shopping, or travel and visit outside of our neighborhood, we do not know the people and they do not know us. they are afraid of our different ways and looks, are afraid we will hurt them somehow, and want us out of their area.
When they come to our neighborhood sometimes they get the same treatment, it has been this way long before even the bible,
I blame sports... after 1900, baseball started an identity war between these cities... adding to the already intense manufacturing growth and competitions, Industrial infighting, and the rise of labor unions. in 1917 as we dragged our feet entering WW One, President Woodrow Wilson said of Americans ...
"Once these people are led into war, they'll forget there ever was such a thing as tolerance. To fight you must be brutal and ruthless, and the spirit of ruthless brutality will enter into the very fiber of our national life, infecting Congress, the courts, the policeman on the beat, the man in the street."
And, in 1920, (after the war), the Spanish Flu Pandemic, Prohibition, Labor unions, corruption/crime, the KKK, and the red scare ending with a 1924 immigration halt, and a black exodus began northward across the Mason-Dixon, the war had "indeed", fueled an American intolerance of any/all ethnic groups or identities.
Summation: during the 1920-1940 era America was "coming of age", literacy was up, the financial prosperity "or" of the 20's "roar" due to industrial and infrastructure growth was insanely great, Americas place atop the world structure, and the establishment of "classes" established by financial and/or intellect prowess.. was an all new stage for America.
The great depression of the 1930s destroyed it all, and soberly releveled the playing field, actually creating the "new" American rebirth with wwll.
The self-repair happened with the 1940-on years of needing maximum labor to support the war effort, which brought on another massive black exodus North, immediately at the wars end in 1945, "de"-segregation mentality and actions started all across the North and Western America states.
......................that sets the stage for my 1950-1970 experienced exposures to ethnic racism and disparities in Cleveland Ohio, from whence all of my established opinions arise. it all starts with being knowledgeable on how... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Migration_(African_American), 1964 CIVIL RIGHTS ACT, 1964 NATION OF ISLAM DETROIT 1965, BLACK PANTHER MVMNT 1966 OAKLAND, HOUGH RIOTS for 4 days in 1966. 1968 MLK ASSASINATIONCleveland's black population from 85,000 in 1940 to 251,000 in 1960; by 1960 blacks made up over 30% of the city's population. BY Y2K 50%, GUESSTIMATES ARE 50% TODAY, THE TALE IS IN THE INDUSRIALIZATION Cleveland population was around 1 million all during ww2 and up until the early 1960's, today it is 350,000.
1.8 million in Detroit 1950 550,000 today,and 85% black, https://247wallst.com/special-report/2017/11/03/the-worst-cities-for-black-americans-2/3/
like other steel towns Gary Indiana the city's black population increased from 21% in 1930, 39% in 1960, to 53% in 1970. 85% at Y2K, the city went from 200,00 in 1960 to 70,000 today
Chicago went from 3.5 million in 1960 to 2.5 million in y2k Chicago's South Side emerged as United States second-largest urban black concentration @ 40%, following New York's Harlem.
I cannot ever really got over the influence of that upbringing, although I was forced to tone it down before people west of the Rockie called in the vans with the guys in white jackets... by my mid-twenties, I realized my training and attitudes had been replaced with permissiveness, pacifism, marijuana, F__k it, and I don't give-a-shit.
But the scars were there, the brainwashing was already completed, and I was to wander around in an alien landscape of having this obedience and respect for authority, and my country... following rules of protocol and recognizing social etiquettes and graces that no one else saw,
businesses, like people should never wear colors, I have walked out of, and boycotted businesses, taxicabs, and public spaces that display their religious or ethnic colors, it is a "see me" indulgence, intended to send a message... and it does ! a panther head, star of David, hammer and sickle, cross, crescent, red star, Buddha swatzika, BLM fist, or altar is simply inappropriate for display.
